Happy Sunday Guys!

Weekly Goals

Sorry it’s so late in the evening but I had a full week.  For someone who has been unemployed for all  these weeks I sure have stayed busy.  I was doing something all day everyday.  I haven’t had a chance to watch one episode of Maury.

He is NOT the father!

This Life is the Only Thing We will Ever Know

That is the God honest truth. 

The video above is by one of my favorite YouTubers WongFuProductions.  I love pretty much every single video they have ever made.   They examine life through glasses of people who are looking to grow through self actualization.  There is maturity in their words and thoughts that is more than clear in the production and writing of their work.  This type of thinking and thought process seems to be long forgotten in both society and Hollywood.

Wong Fu must have been sent by God because this video is the thing I needed to see tonight.  I needed a post of inspiration. Something to make me understand why I must follow my dreams and desires and  not get detoured by life, the what-ifs, and the self doubts.  If our dream is what we want, we should make it happen.  This is the only life we will know.  Do you really want to sit on the sidelines and watch it go by?  Do you want to be the person sitting there and envying the players or do you want to the quarterback?

Me?  I have to play the game.  I cannot sit around.  I get so tired of seeing people around me make it happen with their passions and desires that I… I get… geez… I get lazy.  I mean, at the end of the day I am the only one setting up my own hurdles and then I get mad that they are there.  I function in chaos because I am so used to it.  I am so used to struggling that when things go smooth I feel as though I have to put a mental hurtle up because it can’t possibly go this easy.  I know I need to change this about myself.

However, I cannot do this anymore.  I can no longer detour greatness.  I have everything that I will ever need to be successful and now I’m just realizing that I am not giving it my 100% all.  That will change.

Because it’s our life.. and why not…

…Why not make it everything that you want it to be?

Thank You Wong Fu for the reminder.

Urban Jungle Photography


I know I haven’t showed off a lot of my recent work and that’s because I have been unbelievably busy in life as of late.  Here is a session that I did about two weeks ago with an old co-worker Patricia.  She wanted to get these done in time for her 36th birthday.  Doesn’t she looks AMAZING?!  LOL!  I think it’s always a great thing to get professional photos of yourself just for the fun of it.

Portrait Photography in Austin


I know! You guys haven’t seen S in awhile. She has been off being a LEGITIMATE rockstar to the SUPREME level! And there is no pun when I saw Supreme! I am so happy and proud to know and love S. She is by far one of my favorite people on the planet.

So when she asked if I would take the time schedule a fun portrait session  with her I, of course, said no.


Of course I said yes! I have known this woman for 20 years come August!

GEEZ I’m old!

But we look so dayum good!

Especially S!

My girl has been through a tone of growing in the last two years and it has made her an even more awesome person. As we all continue to grow we blossom into who we are meant to be and that’s what I wanted to portray in these photos with Shanna.

I also wanted to do a more film style on digital and because she is amazing she let me experiment with this style. I have to say that I really do dig it.

I hope you guys enjoyed viewing these photos as much I we enjoyed taking them! If you want to see more of my work please visit and LIKE my Photography Facebook page, UrbanJunglePhotography

Terry Richardson Project in Dallas

Terry Richardson Dallas UrbanJunglePhotography

Hey everyone!  I know I haven’t been on a regular basis, but that’s because of a lot of things which i PROMISE to explain fairly soon!   Today though I wanted to share a project that I did that was inspired by Terry Richardson.  Only due to lack of time I won’t go into fully who Terry Richardson is but he is a photography badass.  He has such a simple aesthetic that works for him so well!  To see some of his personal work check out his tumblr page.
