I met Deleigh Hermes at The Heartbreaker Banquet at Willie Nelson’s ranch during SXSW 2012. She was photographing the event while I was doing videography with many other Austin filmmakers.

Shortly after this all day festival, Deleigh won a trip through Costa del Mar sunglasses to Belize in Central America. She was to stay for thirty days with her two trusty sidekick babes, Hannah Carlock and Darlene Robinson who live with her and near her in Austin, Texas. She had a grand idea of filming with a GoPro everyday she was down South and creating 30 days worth of video to show friends, family and the world. She’s been working hard on editing each day into episodes so you gotta check them out!
We created this video below before she left to talk about her goals in the tropics and values as a photographer in Austin living in the “real world” post college. She’s a fellow artist in a worldly city and I hope to work with her soon!

The other day I visited Darwin’s Pub on 6th street to see Quinn Walton, an old friend of mine, jam with some Austin locals. In fact, they play every Tuesday through Saturday at this location. I captured some photos with my 50 mm lens so they can use them on their website and social media pages. I’ll be visiting them more often this summer and hope to do some video work with them soon as well.
Check out Erin Woolsey and her husband, photographers who reside in Fort Worth but work all over the world. Their company is called EE Photography and they primarily take on weddings as well as other photo opportunities. I met them at a shoot with Revelry Dresses where Erin was taking photos and I was filming the various colorful set ups.
