I'm a Texas photographer and artist in several media who has loved the camera for decades.

 

I've done wedding photography, family photography, travel photography, architectural and real estate photography, advertising photography, catalog photography, photographs documenting construction projects, and civil and structural construction site surveys. Ages ago, I developed and taught a course in underwater photography.

 

My preference is available light photography, letting the lighting in the setting express itself to candidly reveal the scene.

 

My photography has been used in applications to get several Houston bridges on the National Register of Historic Places.

 

In 2012, Airbnb saw some of my interior and architectural photography and recruited me to photograph Houston area listings. I shot hundreds of listings for them over more than five years.

 

I photograph listings directly for hosts and do real estate photography for realtors and homeowners.

My photos have been used to promote one of my favorite places, the Sylvan Beach Pavilion in La Porte, Texas.

 

I've painted murals and other decorative art, and done faux and cabinet finishes in Houston, Kingwood, Sugar Land, Bolivar Peninsula, Dallas, and beyond. I've tried to help bring the clients' own visions to reality, whether in art, texture or finish, working in a variety of media and products, including Venetian plaster, various glazes and metallic products. I restored the stenciling in an Austin County farmhouse after renovation had destroyed or damaged portions of it.

 

I've done structural and civil inspections and managed civil construction projects nationwide. I've performed structural inspections on security towers at Los Alamos National Laboratory, and managed projects for various government and private clients, including the Department of Defense and Mississippi Air National Guard.

 

I am a huge fan of flickr, this international community of artists, photographers, activists and spectators.

 

Some photographers may be missing out if they don't take at least occasional advantage of Creative Commons, by which photographs, with proper attribution, get further exposure in online and print media.

 

My photostream is a mixture of old and new photos for photos' sake and photos recording my art, projects, etc.

 

Some of my photography is prompted by regret over photos not taken over the years, passing a bridge or a movie theater and telling myself that I really should take a picture of it, before it's gone, only to pass it some time later, and it is gone.

 

Some of it is prompted by a here-there thing: the windows, the bridges, the old movie theaters, the books...

 

A pontist, I'll walk or kayak miles in to photograph an old bridge, especially if I haven't found recent photographs of it.

 

Born downtown, I've lived in metropolitan Houston all my life. I get exasperated with our casual attitude toward our architectural heritage, and with some other things. I'm still enjoying exploring Houston, learning about it, finding new perspectives. For all Houston's faults, my love affair with the place continues.

 

I also have more than forty years of slides and negatives, the best of which I hope to find time to scan. They document my love of Texas, the Gulf Coast in particular, the sea in general, and more.

I have particularly enjoyed Patrick Feller’s work since I am from this area as well and have for many years lived with the frustration of seeing people I love unable to resist the culture of hate that surrounds them. Patrick captures in images what I believe to be a shared frustration. He knows the same Houston I grew up in and devotes a good bit of his time behind the lens in documenting it here. The buildings and bridges I see in his photographs always stir memories for me. Thank you, Patrick.
