Dallas Fort Worth Skyline Triptych

by on Apr.13, 2017, under News, Projects, Recent Projects

The Saga of the Dallas Fort Worth Skyline Triptych

My most recent project is the result of a commission by Delta Airlines for a 24 foot wide by 6 foot high mural of Dallas and Fort Worth combined.

I had done a similar combination for KTXD TV in 2013, but theirs was 208″ wide by around 96″ high.  It could not be repurposed to the new dimensions of 288″ x 73″ – so… Back to the drawing board, so to speak.

DFW Skyline 2013

Original DFW Skyline 2013

I could re-use only a couple of the original elements in the original skyline, which meant going out to re-shoot lots of buildings and add some images from recent shoots of both cities.  The most complicated elements were the Calatrava bridge (cutting it out of the background took the better part of an entire day) and Reunion Tower.  Reunion Tower is a composite of two images.  First, I shot it from the south side on a parking garage at sunset so I could get the detail of the column itself and the reflective blue-green of the outer walls.  Then I shot the entire structure at night from the levee with a 400mm lens to get a tight high detail shot + the lights in all their glory.  Then.  And here’s the fun part.  I pasted every single light into place over the sunset exposure after cutting the tower out of the sky.  That took a very long time, as you might imagine.  It’s also pretty tedious work.  I love the result, though.  Another of my creations that you can never find in nature.

In this incarnation of the DFW Skyline, I added in the most recent Supermoon from 2016.  It was the largest Supermoon in decades and the detail of it was superior to the original.  I had wanted to include one in the version for KTXD, but London Broadcasting preferred it with the ghosted Texas flag and no moon.

The final image looks like this:

Dallas Fort-Worth Skyline 2017

Now, since this composition is so wide and short, it becomes a serious problem to produce, handle, transport and install.  As a result, the version I am marketing is a triptych, available in three sizes only.  These are Limited Editions, signed and numbered.

A 6′ wide set of 3 panels limited edition of 15 (on aluminum) for $1500

A 12′ wide set of 3 panels limited edition of 15 (on aluminum) for $3250

A 4′ wide single sheet limited edition of 25 (on aluminum) with the legend below it for $995

If you are interested in either one, send me a message or pick up the phone and call me at

214-232-9503

The triptych version is rearranged slightly to allow it to be divided:

Dallas, Texas

by on Dec.24, 2016, under Exhibitions, gallery updates, News, Photo Du Jour, Projects, Recent Projects

Almost 3 years ago we made the move 20 miles south from Frisco to Dallas.  We did this for a long list of reasons, but primarily for the culture.  We wanted to be closer to the Arts and Design Districts – and Deep Ellum.  Places where creative people congregate.  We also like the feel of Dallas in general.  We feel like we belong here.  In North Dallas we are 15 minutes from almost anything we are interested in and we don’t need toll roads to get there.  Surface streets provide excellent, swift access.

For about 10 years now, I have been capturing Texas in all its glory.  The minutiae is what fascinates me the most, as is evidenced in my first coffee table book, Texas As I See it.  Dallas, on the other hand, does everything on a bigger-than-life scale.  As a result, the Dallas skyline was awarded Best International Skyline status in a USA Today poll.   And it just keeps getting better as more and more structures add dramatic computer controlled lighting.  The addition of the Margaret Hunt Hill bridge designed by Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava and the completion of the Omni Hotel were the defining moments in the evolution of the skyline in my opinion.

On various occasions since 2010 I have captured this amazing skyline.  In 2013 I had a commission to create a backdrop for KTXD TV in Dallas.  The concept was a composite Dallas / Fort Worth Skyline, which ended up being a 15 hour editing project after capturing new images around midnight on two different nights.  The result is a 204 inch wide sunrise skyline with the Texas Flag ghosted into it.

During this process I also created individual skylines of each city and produced a highly idealized version of the Dallas skyline complete with the Supermoon from 2013.  Since then I have re-shot the ever-evolving cityscape of Dallas on several occasions.  Naturally, whenever there is a Supermoon, going out to re-shoot is a good idea, as there is no better backdrop for this celestial event than Dallas.

This year I went out to capture the Beaver Moon over the skyline along with several hundred other amateur and professional photographers.  The results were fairly dramatic, but the view from the levee does not provide a complete cityscape.  Some crucial elements get left out – like the Omni Hotel.

The image below has become very popular in recent months.  This is the origin of the combination skyline and I had completely forgotten about it.  During an art show where I was exhibiting Oz, a client requested a night sky cityscape.  I looked through my Facebook gallery and resurrected this one.  As a result I have printed, delivered and installed several of these recently.  The largest one measures 86″ wide by 40″ high and is installed in an office building in Dallas.

You can see the entire Dallas gallery on my website.  I fill custom orders by email / phone, so send me a message if you’re interested in any of these.

I do all printing and framing in-house with the exception of aluminum and acrylic prints.  These I outsource.

This image is coming in next week (30×45) on aluminum for Northwestern Mutual in Dallas.  It was shot in 2015 when the Trinity River was flooded during an interview with the Dallas Observer:

NYC New Images Coming Soon!

by on Aug.10, 2015, under gallery updates, News, Projects, Recent Projects

We have made several trips to The Big Apple, so this time I did not capture my usual architectural selection of dramatic skyscraper shots.  I’ve done that and have a sizable library of NYC images as a result. This time we focused on showing my son around the City and chose the classics:  Liberty Island, Ellis Island, Grand Central Terminal and of course, One World Trade Center – or Freedom Tower as most people seem to call it.

Several new dramatic images are in production, some of which are included in this blog.

I was fascinated by the myriad assortment of bicycles chained, locked, cabled and intertwined with various security anchors throughout the City.  Some clearly had been in the same place for a decade or more.  Others were obviously in current use – and then there were the in-between and indistinct relics.

I felt a Selective Color approach was perfect for this collection and am working on “Chained” – hopefully to be a coffee table book in the near future.

Top of my list so far is “Freedom”

Freedom Tower (One World Trade Center for those who want to be picky) wrapped in an American flag as viewed from Ellis Island.
The stainless steel wall in the foreground is inscribed on both sides with the names of those who came to this country in search of freedom and opportunity.

The flag is from a 2008 firefighters memorial in Denton, Texas.

Dallas Observer Article May 2015

by on May.30, 2015, under News

During the peak of our recent batch of Spring storms, I was contacted by Jeremy Hallock of the Dallas Observer.  He was interested in doing an article on my photography and career.  He was also keen on watching me work and was especially interested in my time-exposure work.  Since I had a few things on my to-do list in Dallas, this was an opportunity to kill two birds with one stone.

We decided to meet at the rooftop pool / bar of the Nylo Hotel, (which has a really cool painted baby grand piano) that would afford an interesting view of the Dallas skyline.  As it was Memorial Day weekend, both Reunion Tower and the Omni Hotel were running red, white and blue displays, which proved to be quite striking at sunset.  After capturing what I wanted there, we relocated to the west side of the Trinity River, which was rain-swolen to near-historic levels at the time.  I had long wanted to capture the Dallas skyline reflected in the Trinity River and this was the perfect opportunity.
