New work for Dell and their executive journal, Realize. We commissioned Noah Berger to document work being by @draperlab, @chicostate, and @calfire to use satellite imagery and data to help predict wildfire behavior.
I also commissioned Bob O’Connor to photograph Dell Technologies CTO John Roese.
I had the pleasure of traveling to Orlando recently to produce a series of videos for NCREIF. NCREIF — the leading provider of investment performance indices and transparent data for US commercial properties — was ready to increase visibility around the benefits of membership and their hallmark conferences.
Together with CDB Productions, we interviewed 20 individuals over two days, captured the energy of their conference, as well as highlighted the many educational opportunities available to their members.
I love the way this portfolio turned out. Chip’s work is a thoughtful mix of environmental portraits, authentic lifestyle, and storytelling.

I recently finished up a portfolio refresh for Nevada-based photographer Michael Okimoto. Michael’s work focuses on adventures in the outdoors, environmental portraits, resort imagery and video.
You can see more of Michael’s work here.
I recently wrapped up a website edit and new print portfolio for Bay Area-based photographer Peter Adams. Peter’s work focuses on the culture of Silicon Valley, as well as politics and Americana.
Check out his website here.
I wanted to share a new website portfolio edit I just wrapped up with Matt Rainwaters. This was a really fun project because Matt was looking to weave together bodies of work with different styles and themes. He wanted a free-flowing edit and I think we landed on something pretty beautiful.
It’s a bit stream of consciousness. You get to meander through bodies of work, interspersed with textures and unrelated moments. I’m very happy with it and hope you’ll check it out here.
For photographer Elijah Hurwitz, we worked together to edit two of his personal projects so that he could pitch them to various publications. They went on to be published in National Geographic and Vice.
The first story, for National Geographic, is a collection of broad visual reportage from the NK border in China focused on daily life and trade in the wake of UN sanctions and nuclear tensions. You can read more about that article here, and see Elijah’s album on the topic here.
The second story, published in Vice, is a deep dive into a surprising and passionate community of swimmers in unlikely waters: the river between North Korea and China. You can read more on the Vice website here, and see more from Elijah’s series here.
Recently, Eric Pohl and I worked together to create a promo of his work. Eric’s photography primarily focuses on Texas culture, food and places. He also covers travel, landscapes, scenic backroads and the nostalgic and historic side of small towns. His photography has been featured in publications like Austin Monthly, Texas Highways, Texas Parks & Wildlife, and The Local Palate.
More of Eric’s work can be seen here.
Last year, I completed a website update for Katie Hayes Luke, a photojournalist and multimedia producer out of Austin, Texas. Katie’s work focuses on social issues, interspersed with scenes of Americana, education, poverty, illness and military service.
You can see more of Katie’s work at www.katiehayesluke.com.
Last year I had the opportunity to work with John Michael Fulton. Together we created a brand new website that highlights his fashion, lifestyle and portrait photography.
JM works with editorial and commercial clients like 7 For All Mankind, Nylon Magazine, Mod Cloth, Rachel Zoe and many more.
I’m looking forward to following his work and seeing future projects. See more of his work at www.johnmichaelfulton.com.
I love seeing edits come to life on photographers’ websites. I recently wrapped up working with Ian Curcio, an amazing portrait photographer based in South Carolina. Ian’s work radiates joy, a dry sense of humor, and a real connection with the people he photographs.
Here are a few of my favorite photos. Check out the full galleries at www.iancurcio.com.
Last fall, I had the pleasure of being an on-site photo editor for the Texas Book Festival. The photography team, led by Bob Daemmrich, included Deborah Cannon, Laura Skelding and Marjorie Kamys Cotera.
Lots of great photography events including talks and book signings with Pete Souza, Kenny Braun, Wyatt McSpadden, Pete Beste, Jay B Sauceda, and Casey Dunn.
Highlights from the 2018 Texas Book Festival can be viewed here. Check out some of my favorite photos below!
I’m so happy to share the website I created with NYC-based lifestyle and portrait photographer Susie Mann (@susiemcreative). Susie brings a fabulous energy to her work, creating images where people exude confidence and joy.
Susie came to me looking to freshen up her portfolio and marketing.
Here’s what we did together:
✅ Talked about her goals, what inspires her, and what kind of work she enjoys doing the most.
✅ Updated her website with a totally new edit
✅ Fine-tuned her @aphotofolio website template (love the new look!)
✅ Marketed her website update with an email blast to relevant clients
These are a few of my favorite photos from her site. Check out the full galleries here.
I’m so happy to share the updated website I edited for Portland, Oregon based @nashcophoto. I love their tagline, “We make real people look cool”!
From celebrities and students to doctors and farmers, they capture people in an effortless way.
Their portraiture is beautifully complimented by their storytelling.

This fall, I had the pleasure of working with the media team for one of my favorite events, the Texas Tribune Festival. Working this event is a fun whirlwind of scheduling, editing, captioning, funneling images to social media teams, and of course, breakfast tacos and coffee. Lots, and lots of coffee.
Austin is lucky to have some incredibly talented, hard-working photojournalists covering this event. The Tribune Festival photography team included Bob Daemmrich, Callie Richmond, Chris Carrasquillo, Erich Schlegel, Erika Rich, Marjorie Kamys Cotera, Rachel Zein, Rudolfo Gonzalez, Stephen Spillman, Steve Moakley, Thomas Meredith and fellow photo editor Leslie Baldwin.
Thanks to Tribune Creative Director Jacob Villanueva for putting together a rock-star team! If you are in need of solid event or editorial coverage, these photographers should be on your list!!
I’m excited to share a recent website update for lifestyle photographer and director Stephanie Rausser. Stephanie’s motion and still work has a focus on couples, children and families. She brings a bright and inviting quality to all of her work.

I recently wrapped up working with Oakland-based architecture and lifestyle photographer Vivian Johnson. Interior photography is Vivian’s specialty, and she brings a warm, cozy vibe to every project. She’s also great at incorporating people (designers, families, artists, etc) in her shoots. Her freshly-updated website showcases this work along with her destination storytelling.
In order to share her work with designers, architects and interior goods companies, we created a beautifully-printed booklet, along with a coordinated email promo and graphics for sharing on social.

I recently had the pleasure of working with commercial lifestyle photographer Tosca Radigonda on her new website portfolio. The website, built on the PhotoFolio platform (photofolio.io) features a stunning collection of children's lifestyle work, as well as dreamy and ethereal travel imagery.
Tosca and I also worked together to create a gorgeous, 16-page print promotion which was sent to advertising and editorial creatives, along with a coordinated email promo.

Being an on-site photo editor for large events is one of the best things about my job! Working with the photographers, PR folks, and social media team in a fast-paced environment is always an inspiring way to spend a work day.
ACL Fest is a special level of high energy, since your office is in the middle of the largest music festival in Texas!
Together with fellow editors Alyssa Coppelman and Molly Winters, we reviewed tens of thousands of photos, selecting, editing, and distributing images in as close to real time as possible.
We curated galleries of the best images from the weekend, highlighting marketing activations, crowd shots, aerials, and of course, EPIC stage shots of the bands performing.
The unsung heroes of the production were the runners, who literally ran -- to and from golf carts -- to shuttle cards from the photographers in the photo pit to the A/V trailer.
The photographers were Callie Richmond, Cambria Harkey, Greg Noire, Nick Simonite, and Reagan Hackleman.
Here are a few of my favorite images!
