How i started

I’m a native Houstonian. I started my passion in photography the hard way: photo processing labs. My first big break was with Evin Thayer Studios where I worked, shot and learned for eight years. My second break came working in the "dark room" as a digital retouching artist for Gittings. Once I went on my own in 2005, I took every job I could: weddings, events, portraits, jewelry, and food – the ultimate “yes” man. Eventually, I landed a shoot with Heritage Texas Properties photographing real estate and I was hooked. It was only a matter of time until I completely specialized in Real Estate and Architectural Photography. I eventually stopped doing all other types of photos, and life became easier and more profitable! Now I have been upgrading my knowledge, equipment and drive for my niche and life couldn’t be better.

What I'm doing

I’m an Architectural Photographer specializing in Real Estate. My time is divided between photographing residential real estate, multi family communities and various other architectural projects. I'm a certified remote pilot so taking aerial photographs is one of the great tools in my bag. For "fun" I am @thehoustonguy on Instagram. I found a way to pair my passion with the city that has nurtured it. Houston is beautiful and I intend to showcase that. Have a look at our downtown skyline. It’s one of the most beautiful in the world. I’ve been shooting it for years. Whenever I find myself with free time, I like to assign myself a shoot of some of Houston’s landmarks. One of the things I tell new photographers is that when business slows down, don’t freak out: Keep shooting! Houston is a wonderful muse. I am very proud of the steady improvement in the quality of my images through education. I never stop learning. Don't hesitate to contact me with any questions you have about photography, I will do my best to answer them. Perhaps we will both learn something!
