REVIEW – SmartMade Chicken with Spinach Fettuccine

Another Diet Review? This is what happens when a fat photographer gets writers block with his blog.  In my attempt to convince Google that I’m an active blogger, I want to write a post every day. (We’ll see how long that lasts) Since I don’t have anything for today about Wedding Photography in San Antonio,… Read More

Review – Atkins Meatloaf

A Little Deceptive As a photographer, I’m visual minded.  When I started my diet, I had to go to the store to pick out some sensible low calorie, high protein items for dinners. I had already gotten some little steaks, some chicken breast filets, and some tilapia.  I was going through the frozen dinner section… Read More

Review – Hello Fresh

Review – SmartMade Diet Dinners

UH – OH… I’m FAT When I started this blog, it was going to just be about Wedding Photography. I was going to write blog entries every week. Sometimes a person runs out of ideas. I thought I would open up another part of my life besides my passion for wedding photography, and write about… Read More

First Love

1976 I was in Love with this car
Age 15, 1978

Like the song goes, it was 1978, my hair was long, my thoughts were short. Boston’s “Don’t Look Back” was blasting on my radio. 9th grade at Laplata Junior High was awkward in Hereford Texas. In that school, at that time, you were either a football player or you were nothing. I was a nothing band geek. I dreamed about becoming a radio DJ. A year later, I would start working at my first radio station, KPAN.

Wedding Singer

We’ve all seen the movie “The Wedding Singer” with Adam Sandler. It’s hilarious. Last week, I met the REAL wedding singer. He’s a one man show. He’s the DJ, playing songs that will have your guests on the dance floor, but then suddenly he will grab his microphone, and he will serenade you with an incredible voice. His company is called Exodus Sound Co. and he advertises “the perfect mix of live music and DJ”. He told me that he sings all kinds of songs, from pop, to hits from the 50’s. He did an awesome set of Frank Sinatra!

Tutorial Edgy Portraits By Richard Spears

This is from four years ago. I was a member of a photography group, and they wanted me to share my technique for producing the “Edgy Portraits” like the Firefighter pictures in the blog. There’s an inside joke here that I should explain. There was a member in the Digital Photography School forum who used to make fun of my wedding photography business because my pricing was considerably lower than his pricing. His pricing for a wedding started at about $5K. He didn’t think much of my work or my business, and he would refer to me as the “Walmart Photographer” because of my low prices. I didn’t let him get under my skin and proudly owned the “Walmart Photographer” title.

Composite Photography

Composite Photography is what I do for fun (with a camera) when I'm not doing wedding photography. What is composite photography you ask? It's the process of creating one image by combining two or more images. It might be as simple as replacing a boring sky on a portrait with a sky that has dramatic... Read More

How to Choose Your Wedding Photographer

Several years ago, someone forwarded me a website/blog called "38 Questions to Ask a Wedding Photographer" and asked me what I thought about it.  I won't shame the person who wrote the article, but it was ridiculous (and I'm being polite here).  Okay, you twisted my arm: 38 Questions for Wedding Photographer Seriously one of...

Why Cops Love Donuts

To those of you who know me, you get the joke. I hear it all the time… it’s always funny to poke fun at fat cops and donuts. But this topic always made me want to go two places: to talk about the origin of the joke, and to talk about stereotypes.
