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
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
This is a review from my friend Connie Robbe: Got a complimentary Hello Fresh kit today. Reviews were eh… The portion sizes for the meat were the size of a ladies palm and only one but the meal serves 2 supposedly. The frozen layers it came in where still frozen but the meat was not… Read More
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
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.
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!

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.
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.
