Off The Record:  Rio

The First Album The first official album cover for my “Off The Record” project has been completed and was unveiled today – appropriately enough – in London during my program at SWPP.  I decided to start the project off with an iconic album cover from a British band that helped define 80s music – Duran Duran. Rio When we were first...

Photo Project:  Off The Record

Anyone Remember Records? The era of the vinyl LP is pretty much behind us.  Sure, there are a few die-hard collectors and DJs who still covet records, but by-and-large, the music industry has left them behind. Remember when you were a kid and you got a cool new album for Christmas?  It was always obvious what it was from the unusual, flat shape.  You would put...

Blast from the Past

Every year, I teach a darkroom class to 8th graders at The Westwood School in Dallas. Although it is truly a dying art, I think there is still a lot to be learned from the whole development process. You have to work to get a nice image and can’t just shoot 1000 shots and hope to get a good one.  While there are many things I love about digital photography,...

My Favorite Photoshop Filters

I get a lot of emails asking which Photoshop filter plugins I use on my images.  By far, my favorites are the Topaz filters.  I like the fact that they offer easy-t0-use presets, but also allow you to go in and fine tune the look as much as you want. I don’t really endorse too many photography items, but this one is must-have in my opinion. I thought I...
