Capturing the images and moments that matter most.
While a moment in time is fleeting, photography allows you to capture that moment. GPG Photography focuses on sports, portrait, and performance photography in the Houston and surrounding areas.
I see portraits as a collaboration between the subject and the photographer. The two come together to create something new. It can be an exaggeration of the subject or simply bring out their personality within the photograph. In the end, the result is a personalized experience.
Capturing an artist's performance is a great challenge and even greater reward. I enjoy working with artists to bring to light the quality of their work.
A great show every year at the Texas Renaissance, Solar Rain is amazing. See more at Solarraintx.com
On the Eve of the Super Bowl, I had the pleasure of attending the Cirque Noir Event downtown. It featured many talented performers as well as a crisp club environment that partied well into the morning.
The sights and sounds of the Renaissance Festival allow me to practice my craft with a variety of images to explore. This is one of my favorite places to shoot. This year I will be offering private shoots at the festival itself.
One of my favorite subjects are the animals found at the Houston Zoo. I enjoy taking some time to share their beauty with others.
Why I do this...
I started this for my kids. Now I enjoy looking back at the photographs when they were young and their time in sports. I look at these images and they speak about the individuals as much as the moment. My goal is to provide the same for my clients.
One of my favorite photographs. While many simply see my son on the sideline at a football game, I see a moment of pride as a parent. Logan was benched at the end of the first quarter after being called for a taunting penalty. He sat through half time upset at himself. He responded with three forced fumbles and his best half of the season. His joy was obvious in this photograph. This picture also carries my pride and why I now do this for others.
The last game of the season and the defense held as the opposing team had the ball inside the ten. The deciding play was a forced fumble by Logan. It sealed the win for his team. This was his last game and this will be the lasting image I see when I look back on his playing days.
When taking portraits, sometimes its best to let the person do what comes naturally to them. My youngest son, Landon, always did things his own way. This picture is a great example of that. When I look back at this picture all I think is "that's so Landon!"
