As a reminder, this weekend I’ll be hosted by the Pottery Barn store located in Southlake’s Town Square for a two-day artist pop-up. I’ll be bringing a range of my photographic prints, so there’s a little something for everyone. A portion of the proceeds from every sold piece of art will be donated to Pottery Barn’s official corporately sponsored charity: Saint Jude’s Children Research Hospital and their lifesaving mission of: Finding cures. Saving children.
You may have heard a bit about the European Union law known as the GDPR, the purpose of this law is to provide better transparency and more control for an individual in regards to their privacy and how businesses and organizations market to them. While most of our fans are from right here in the United States, we’ve been blessed with fans from all over the world too.
In order to make sure as a business we maintain compliance with this law, we have sent out an email to all current subscribers to confirm their subscriptions while also providing them with means to control the ways we contact and market to them. While not all of my fans are residents or citizens of an EU member nation, I think these controls will be something all of our audience will appreciate.
And if you’ve never signed up before, here’s a perfect time to subscribe for the first time to the newsletter!

As an emerging artist, here’s the photographic works I will bring to this year’s Main ST. Fort Worth Arts Festival (April 19-22, 2018). You can find me near Sundance Square, at the intersection of 3rd & Main Street inside Booth #351. Please drop by and say hi!
This past January while the Fort Worth Stockyards were happening, I had an opportunity to go to the attached carnival and experiment with some long exposure photography. By allowing my camera to take in light slowly over a longer period of time, I get to see the rides come alive thanks to all their decorative lights.
I’m incredibly thrilled to announce that I have been named an emerging artist for this year’s Main Street Fort Worth Arts Festival, which will be held April 19-22, 2018 in Fort Worth, Texas.
The Main Street Fort Worth Arts Festival is one of the top three juried Fine Arts Festivals in the United States, which uses a five-member panel of art professionals to make their selections. They had 1282 artists apply from around the world. While 223 artists were invited to participate, their emerging artist category is specifically used to help spotlight new and emerging Texas artists. To be included in this group of 20 artists across a range of media including photography, painting, sculpture, and jewelry is a tremendous honor. There’s only a very limited part of a career where an artist can be eligible for this category, and this was in all likelihood the only time I would ever by eligible for this wonderful opportunity that will have long-lasting repercussions for my career. To say that I’m ecstatic, is an understatement.
So please save the following dates: April 19-22, 2018 and come out and support all of the amazingly-talented artists specially selected to this year’s festival. I’ll look forward to you visiting me at Booth #351 (near the intersection of 3rd Street & Main Street).
I just received the news earlier today that one of my photographic works has been selected in the juried 2017 IAA’s Photography Competition. 75 works from 44 different regional photographers will be in the exhibit that runs October 29th – December 1st at the Jaycee Parks Center for the Arts located at 1975 Puritan Drive in Irving, Texas. The Reception & Awards Ceremony will be Sunday, November 5th, from 2-4pm. Admission is free and open to the public.
The Juror is Mark Thompson, an award-winning photographer, videographer and filmmaker. Mark began his career as a painter before discovering his penchant for digital media, at which point he began making the move from being a full-time painter to full-time professional photographer and videographer. Over the years Mark’s training and experience has touched on a variety of different genres that include everything from commercial & product photography to fine art and even filmmaking. Mark has worked as photographer for such outfits as CBS News, the Dallas Museum of Art, the Deep Ellum Foundation, and the Lyndie Wilkes Advertising Agency (just to name a few), his photography as been shown in art galleries all over North Texas, and he is currently producing his first feature-length documentary film.
