How I got into Photography...
Throughout high school I worked for a professional camera stores and apprenticed with three phenominal photographers including Dan Coleman who trained and worked with Ansel Adams. In the summer I took advanced courses in photography at Southern Methodst University. Our high school yearbook staff won a national publication design award and was featured in a documentary film.
Throughout college I worked as a staff photographer for Texas A&M University publications shooting NCAA Sports and providing regional sports / news imagery as a stringer for United Press International and Associated Press. I also moonlighted as a portrait photographer for various studios and taught classes in photography for the Texas A&M MSC Camera Committee and helped build a successful event photography company.
How I got into Film / Video...
The first videos I made were college art films conceptualizing famous poetry. Soon after graduation I joined an investment company as an Art Director and had the opportunity to work with Cinestar Films on the feature project Rigged starring Academy Award winner George Kennedy. After a few yearsI founded Glaze Studios, LLC. The studio’s first contract was with the Texas Department of Transportation to art direct a statewide identity / branding campaign for motorcycle safety in Texas including PSA's starring Jimmie Vaughan.
Since then we have produced documentary films, music videos, corporate brand films, short films, training, commercials and a video interface with a live 3D avatar digitally connected to the referee’s coin and displayed on the jumbo-tron at the 2010 Liberty Bowl.
