Alt Perspective on Brian Matiash’s Blog

by on Oct.03, 2010, under Photography

HDR guru and photographer friend Brian Matiash did me the honour of publishing a guest post by me over on his blog today. This contains a collection of some of my favourite images and links to this blog and various other of my online hangouts. People reading it may also be interested in looking at my photoblog since it contains images that are quite frequently different from those on the other sites. You can find it at

Thanks to Brian for adding me to a list of photographers whose work has inspired me over the last few years. If you are interested in HDR photography but don’t already follow Brian’s blog, you should head on over and see what you are missing.

Impromptu Austin Photo Walk

by on May.01, 2010, under Photography

Austin photowalk gets underway.#photo on TwitpicAfter a last minute call on the Austin Photography Group message board a couple of days ago, a group of about a dozen photographers gathered at the Stevie Ray Vaughan statue on Lady Bird Lake for a photowalk in downtown Austin yesterday evening. We spent a very enjoyable 3 hours wandering up Congress Avenue to the Capitol then back down to the lake in time to shoot some dusk skylines.

I spent more time chatting than shooting though I did manage to take both the shots I was looking for – panoramas of the Capitol rotunda interior and the downtown skyline with reflections in the lake.

One of the best aspect of the evening for me was a chance to meet three photographers I’ve known from various online groups but never actually met in person. Evan Gearing is an Austin photographer whose HDR images are among the best around. Brian Matiash is another well known HDR photographer based in Boston but, coincidentally, was in Austin for the weekend. Brian was shooting with Jack Hollingsworth, known to most photographers who use Twitter as @photojack. It was great to meet these guys and I’m very interested to see what they post as a result of the evening.

Given the success of the jaunt, I suspect there will be more of these gatherings in future. Would anyone like to suggest possible routes?
