The e-commerce page for my TreZ collection is now fully operational. You can order any of the series in any size you can imagine and we will produce it for you – usually within about 2 weeks.
After the page was finished I realized I’d left our 3 new TreZ from the listing. But that is now rectified!
So here’s the page link from which you can view the entire library and place orders in 5 different sizes of Limited as well as Unlimited Editions.
Just thought I’d post some of the recent news articles here.

It’s been some time since I updated the main galleries, so I wet through, removed some images I felt were not strong enough and added a large number of new images taken in the last few months.
As a result of our travels, coupled with two large-scale continuing Real Estate lifestyle shoots for both Newman Village and Tucker Hill, I have a growing collection of new images.
The photo below is an aerial view of Newman Village in Frisco, Texas, as part of an aerial view shoot we were dong for them.
Sometimes I get so busy working on my art that I forget to let anyone know.
Most of my work is for sale at very reasonable prices on my fulfillment site. At last count I had 545 images in a variety of categories for sale on this site, and clicking on the candle photo will take you directly there.
I’ve been working through my archives lately and adding a lot of new material in almost every possible category to my fulfillment site. If you’re looking for any prints for your home or office – or an electronic image for that creative project (making your own Valentines card for your mate…), you might want to spend a little time browsing my online galleries.
As an example, I just uploaded this image, taken 2 years ago at a wedding I attended.
New images are added on a fairly regular basis, depending on what I’m working on and any contests that may be running.
Since I’m recovering from major foot surgery at the moment, as you might imagine, that leaves me with a lot of free time to sort through my collection of images.
My library consists of over 100,000 images, and it seems I find something new every time I explore the database. And since I’ve got a lot of time on my hands now, it’s getting quite a workout.
Categories on my site:
- World Trade Center Memorial (25% of all sales go to a foundation)
- Sports / Action

… You get this:
When I got to the studio today, I found the refrigerator door ajar about 3 inches. Which caused me to think “WFT?!?!?!?”
Opening the door a bit further, this was what I found.
In addition to the obvious mess here, a sizable quantity wound up underneath the stereo system – and the microwave.
But wait, there’s more…
So here’s where the majority of the diet coke wound up…
Needless to say, cleaning this up was a project.
With no running water in the studio and the closest source of H2O being down the hall to the common bathroom, you can imagine how complicated it was to clean all this up – after hauling all the canned and bottled drinks down to wash them in the sink. Everything that wasn’t a sealed drink was a complete loss. And the freezer converted an impressive amount of humidity into about a one inch thick layer of new ice.
So this is the culprit. The cause of all the fun and games…
You can see how the can swelled up until the seam that keeps the top fastened to the rest of the can just ripped itself loose at what must have been fairly high velocity (I’m sure it was an impressive event).
About 45 minutes later, we had all the drinks cleaned up, the interior of the fridge as clean as possible and both stereo and microwave moved, counter cleaned – and re-populated with equipment.
Then the “defrosting the refrigerator” dance… Removing as much ice as possible by hand, I then wedged a thick layer of ShamWow under the fridge to soak up all the soon-to-melt ice (I’ve been getting grief for these things since I bought them years ago. But they actually work pretty well. HA!) — and left, evidence in hand.
Upon arriving home, I took “the culprit” out to our screened in porch, where we have good light, and took a few photos of the badly-behaved container so I can forward them to the nice folks at Coca Cola. Pretty, isn’t it? And shiny, too.
You have to give their design department credit for creating a pretty, shiny, reflective (if slightly untrustworthy) container for the less caloric version of Coca Cola’s very popular cola drink.
I think they should include face shields and kevlar vests with this product.
What would have happened if I had just picked it up when it “went off”? At a minimum I’d need a bath. But I also might need a digit or two reattached as well…
So tomorrow we’ll mosey back on down to the studio to wring out the ShamWows, dry out the rest of the mess, reload the fridge and start the process of getting it back down to the correct temperature.
And then off to the store to replace the supplies that defrosted during the festivities…
In a timely article on the 15 Fastest Growing Cities in America, MSN is using one of my images. No surprise to those of us who live in the fastest growing city in the Nation (Frisco, Texas), we’ve been watching our population explode at an amazing rate. It’s an interesting article on the rapid growth of fifteen different cities across this nation, including several from the Lone Star State.
Check out the article for the full story.
I’ve certainly gotten more than my fair share of grief as a result of carrying a camera everywhere I go, but it pays off frequently enough to justify the ridicule. Yesterday, as I was making my way up the surface streets in Plano (due to being stuck with a rental car and no toll tag) I noticed what I thought was a rainbow off the the east. I thought “no way” – as there had been no precipitation and the temperature was 106 degrees… But as I made my way north on Midway and kept looking between buildings as I passed them, sure enough, there was a freakin’ rainbow! Hot damn! So now I had a mission. Find something interesting to put between myself and this amazing freak of nature. So off I go, weaving through traffic to try and reach my destination before the clouds to the western horizon can interfere with my target.
Sliding sideways into the gas station off the service road, I jump out of the car with the engine running, adjusting the camera settings as I go, and line up the water tower off Parkwood and Windhaven Pkwy with the rainbow to the northeast. And this is the result. Of course I had to find a couple more vantage points to shoot from, but as usual, the first location and composition turned out to be my favorite shot.
So this is why I always carry a camera. And so should you.
Now that I have my booth assignment, here ‘s the map of this weekend’s Arts In the Square, with my booth space highlighted to make it easy for you to find me.
For the first time, I will be exhibiting a portion of my Tuscany Series, photographed in 2007. If you’ve never been to this wonderful region, this is your opportunity to enjoy it through my eyes. If you have had the good fortune to have enjoyed the Tuscan environment, now you can relive those locations from my perspective.
So make sure you carve out a little time in your weekend schedule to stop by and say hello while checking out all the other hard-working artists in our area.
I just received an email yesterday that some creative folks took all the photos I shot of Nastia Liukin’s homecoming parade in Parker and assembled them into a video with Saving Jane’s “Girl Next Door” as the soundtrack. You can see the video on WOGA’s website or on YouTube. You can search on “Nastia Liukin parade” and look for Nastia Liukin Homecoming Parade Montage – Click Here if that’s too much work…
Here’s the blurb: Photo montage of the parade for Nastia in her hometown of Parker, Texas set to “Girl Next Door” by Saving Jane. Photos by Warren Paul Harris. Created for WOGA by Rich Tate – Alford Media Services.
