2016 In Review

TWENTY-SIXTEEN WAS A BIG YEAR. New clients were booked, revenue milestones were reached, shutter clicks were off the scale, and the official year-end tally of My Butt In An Airline Seat surpassed 15,000 miles. In this video, you’ll find a smattering of my 2016 work from The Olympic Range to the Seychelles. Much appreciation to YETI and Frontiers International Travel, […]


Dog Days

Dog Days

IF YOU’VE LIVED IN TEXAS for any length of time, you know that bombastic statements about the weather will typically circle back around in the form of a platter heaped tall with crow. Some doomsayers, this spring, were predicting that our central Texas lakes would never fill again. Now we’ve got weather-folk proclaiming that our 7-year […]

IF YOU’VE FOLLOWED THIS newsletter for any length of time, you’ve probably noticed that I don’t often post shots of people holding up fish for the camera. I certainly don’t deride that scene, but I’m typically shooting for publication and there aren’t many buyers for gratuitous fish portraits…unless the angler is wearing a bikini…and looks really good in […]

Blake Brown, the morning after his last college exam  FOR EACH OF THE PAST 16 years, my wife and kids and me have spent a good chunk of the summer in Port Aransas,Texas. If you’ve never been there, here’s a bullet synopsis: Great fishing Okay beaches Great eating Great fishing In the early years of […]

Celebrating the low-impact angler. A collection of fly-fishing scenes via kayak and canoe from Texas to the Yucatan.


Back In The Saddle

Back In The Saddle

Well, after seventy-odd days of weather blowouts, punts from the end zone, domestic responsibilities, and myriad other calamities beyond my control, it felt REALLY good to get back on the water with a camera. Texas coastal weather conditions have been pretty crappy this spring, but early last week I snuck through a window with light […]


Them Redfish

Them Redfish

I love redfish. Have I mentioned that? Specifically I love redfish that wag their tails on slick-ass summer mornings when I’ve sweated through my shirt by 7:30 and the air is so heavy that it feels like I’m breathing through a damp towel. As usual, I spent the better party of July in Port Aransas […]


That Good Time of Year

That Good Time of Year

Per the usual, I shucked all things pressing in late June and bagged a few days with family, friends, Port Aransas and redfish. We had a four-day burp of high water with Tropical Storm Arlene but things returned quickly to normal: calm waters, strong tides, sunny skies and mobs of tailing fish. Determined to broaden […]


Back to the Marsh

Back to the Marsh

A year ago I visited South Louisiana at its brightest point in the post-Katrina era. The Saints had just won the Superbowl, New Orleans was buzzing again, and the marshes were full of healthy fish, birds, and critters. And then, a month later, the rug was again yanked from beneath their feet. Last week I […]


The 2010 Holiday Grab Bag

The 2010 Holiday Grab Bag

Instead of showing you some cool new stuff that I shot in November (which I don’t have, because I was playing hooky in a deer blind) I’m now going to shift gears and thank the folks that have allowed me to perpetuate my twenty-five-year existence without cubicles, neckties, or shiny shoes. So, without further adieu, […]


The Blitz: Part Four

The Blitz: Part Four

    We’re done! Well…I mean…we’re done with this east coast gypsy-nomadic journey of shooting photos, interviewing anglers, eating stale Pop-tarts at odd hours, and catching lots of fish (dangit). In late October, me and Pete McDonald traveled to Virginia and North Carolina to wrap up this bizzare year-long odyssey of content gathering for the […]


Alex Was a Butthead

Alex Was a Butthead

This entry is about the incredibly cool photos that I didn’t get I’m normally neck-deep in redfish this time of year, and there’s typically a matter of protocol that goes along with that pursuit. When I arrive in Port Aransas each June, I first spend a few days fishing–just fishing. No cameras allowed. I have […]


Marsh Donkeys and Pick-Sixes

Marsh Donkeys and Pick-Sixes

In a typical year there are exactly two reasons why we angling sorts might travel to New Orleans in February: Mardi Gras and really big redfish. For me, because I’m not real big on parades and costume parties, that leaves exactly one reason to go to New Orleans in February. I booked my dates with […]


Unplugged in the Neo-Tropics

Key West This was our seventeenth year (parents, siblings, kids, et al) with the same dates, same guides, and undoubtedly some of the same tarpon. In some years we’ve hit it perfectly (late May/early June) and in other years the planets were mis-aligned. We had some goofy west winds and poor visibility that hindered a […]
