All the signs were there... the family of four with their matching island print attire sitting in the next row, the flight attendant greeting me with a hearty "aloha", and the mid-flight snack of pineapple slices and macadamia nuts. This plane was clearly on its way to Hawaii. [Ok, there were
August 20, 2016, My family and I found ourselves out and about Houston when we made a stop at a ramen shop for dinner. While eating, I noticed a small group of people enjoying their ramen in cosplay. I love cosplay, so being curious I made my way over and

As artists, we are looking to tell a story -- a tale, if you will, of the subject that we are photographing. We sometimes find ourselves in a less-than-perfect environment that doesn’t lend itself to a stellar picture. So, it’s our job to create that environment, to find the diamond
As kids, we never quite understand why our parents always got on our case about putting on sunscreen. It’s not until we get older that we understand the importance of skincare. While it’s important to maintain a regular skin care routine, the ravages of summer can lead to special summer
Spoiler alert: Iceland isn't for everyone.
Yes, it seems like everyone is either going to Iceland or knows someone who is planning a trip to Iceland. And yes, 2.4 million tourists in 2017 are expected to check "Travel to Iceland" off their bucket lists. Yes, that is yet another Iceland picture
∑t. Everyone knows the movie, games, and lore around George Lucas' creation. Many of us where children when we were exposed to one of the various chapters of this universe and were immediately taken by the expansive universe surrounding it.
1977 predates even my life, but I'll never forget the first
Music festivals have only grown in popularity since the original “mud festival" 48 years ago-- known widely as Woodstock, but how has the fashion changed?
The way in which these festivals are organized has changed and even become more of a spectacle. While inspiration is still drawn from the 1960s festival,
It hasn't even been a week, yet it seems all across my timeline all anyone can speak about is Kendrick Lamar's fourth studio album: DAMN. After spending some time with it, I can see why. Lyrically, Kendrick gets passing marks on all accounts; melodically, the album has a myriad of top-rank production;
As the clouds of burn out smoke fade in to the air and the 2-Step pops and Nitrous purges transition into cricket chirps and silence, TX2K17 officially comes to a close. What an event though! Multiple records were broken, literally tens of millions of dollars’ worth of cars converged on
You have most likely been living beneath a rock if the explosion of digital photography and the associated social media, YouTube, and Vimeo accounts geared towards the discipline has passed you by.
A self-taught photographer myself, I’ve spent many a late night searching through platforms for information on gear, editing tips,
A doorbell buzz. Footsteps. The sounds of traffic. A voice, older from the sound of regret and gruffness, laments:
I have been doing the same thing in the same place, working the same job for 45 years.
God, I know we rarely talk, but every day I wake up I feel like--

They say "what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas," but that no longer applies when the SEMA show is in town. Last month, I took a trip to the City of Sin for an all-out barrage of ten foot tall pick-up trucks, diesel converted lead sleds and the intoxicating smoke of tire-decimating drifting events that
So as I sat in my room, and thought about the weeks ahead of me, all I could think about were the tasks in front of me. Thinking about work, work and more work. When I wasn't thinking about that, I was thinking about work. I was getting everything in
A year ago today my husband (then fiancé) and I laid down to sleep away November. We had no idea how much our lives would change the next day.
The following day began as normal as ever, with my husband leaving before the sun even rises. I got ready for my day
Today marks the first day of a contract to bring back several of our favorite automotive hosts of all time. I'll reiterate on this once more, take gearheads, let their chemistry shine through, throw in cars, and you have a show for everyone. Not only will the automotive enthusiasts get
Recently, I decided to go on a little health kick and get into better shape. Growing up, I was always into sports, playing all of them through high school. After that I didn’t really do much. I was never a chunky kid, but never ripped either. Fast forward to adulthood: I wasn’t very active and I love
It was 1988 when I was given the original Nintendo system for Christmas. 7 years old and the memories from the Nintendo catalogs still ring true today. From Mario, Zelda, Donkey Kong, Metroid, Star Fox, the Gameboy, to other Nintendo specific titles like Mega Man, Pokemon, and all their consoles along
So if you're into automotive anything then you've probably heard the names Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, and James May. Now here is why it's important to not only the automotive community but also households across the globe. The trio has had an uncanny ability to reel in the non gear
It’s getting to be my favorite time of year, the weather is starting to cool down, college football is on the television (Go Gators!) and the fall car show schedule is in full force. If you've attended a few shows and attempted to take photos, you know there are some obstacles
So if there one thing I get asked a lot, it's "Hey Nino, how do you go about shooting a car with a model?". Sadly, there simply isn't a short answer to such a question. For the most part, I think on my feet at these type of shoots, improvising
