Burton: Conference room head shots

Yep. I was given a head shot of one employee and had to match that photo to the other employees in the company. It involved a very specific color of blue, soft lighting with the camera left just slightly brighter and a bright to darker circular gradient behind them.

I set up the studio in the conference room of their office. It was pretty neat and very convenient for them. 
Unfortunately I don't have the rights to post the sample photo, but it looked like this, I assure you. 


A good shoot. I personally would've edited a little different, but I was attempting to match the other head shots foremost.

Amelia and Joe engagement

Amelia and Joe had their engagement shoot in good ol' downtown Denton, Texas. We started off at the TWU gardens then made our way to the square. I thought it was going to be difficult to light with the high contrast between their two skin tones, but I ended up really liking the contrast. Perhaps it's our culture's history, but I for some reason just find a special beauty in interracial couples and get excited to photograph them.

The shoot was great, and you can't even tell that we almost all passed out from humidity. It was so so bad. They were quite the couple for sticking it out with me.

Mustang Technology Air to Air

I was hired to do both aerial photography and video for Mustang Technology. We ended up getting two helicopters to cover this. Alan was in one, I was in the other. We're focusing on that strange looking, box shaped radar on the left side, just behind the wing. The shoot was pretty amazing. It was actually in Feb, but I'm just now blogging about it, so sorry about that.


Filmed at Lake Texoma, Texas.

Dashaney's Senior Portraits

Dashney is a senior at Pilot Point high school.
Her mom is actually my mail carrier, she see's mail addressed to my house as "photography" all the time, and knows I work from home, so she just came to the door. How cool is that. Turns out, yep I take senior portraits.

Dashaney is involved in athletics and you can certainly tell from the tone of her arms and such. She's very pretty and has a just gorgeous skin tone.

These photos were taken at Savannah Texas

This was one of her and her mom's favorites.

AEG Solar Panels Ground + Aerial

I got a chance to take photos for AEG via the MCC ad agency. I love when I'm able to combine ground photography with aerial photography as a service. I was lucky enough to do that on this job. Not only that, but I'm crazy about solar energy!

To the nerds that read my blog, no this is not HDR, but similar.  Multiple exposures with layering and masking.

And of course the aeria
