A couple weeks ago I shot an event for ENVY Magazine that hosted a fashion show at the University Park Audi Dealership in Dallas that was also announcing the new Audi Q5 SUV.  It was quite a fun event filled with lots of pretty people, good food, and good drinks.  Here are some of the images I shot from the event.

The world is a small place! I found my current tailor/custom alterations guy by doing a Google search for local tailor shops in Dallas. I found a local listing for one that seemed legit (had good reviews) and was close by, so I tried him out. He is just as good as his reviews claim! The tailor shop I’m talking about is HARRY’S TAILOR SHOP in Dallas.  Since he not only did a great job altering my clothes, but provided some of the best customer service I’ve returned to him several times in the past 2 years for various alterations. I’ve learned that he has a lot of loyal customers, and is the “go to” tailor for most of the designer stores in Dallas.

Harry and I got to talking one day. I told him I worked for a start-up software company, Lead Maverick, and that I am also a freelance photographer on the side. He seemed very interested in my “background” in technology and search engines. To the average person I may be pretty familiar with how search engines work (it’s my job to know this) and the key elements to ranking well in search engines, etc…, but I am not an extreme expert.  He seemed very interested in how he could affect his appearance in search engines. Since he’s not a very tech savvy guy, he asked me to “take care of it” for him in return for exchanged services. (Excellent!)  So, I created for him a blog site (to serve as his website), as well as, took some photos of him and around his shop to show on the site.    If you’re ever in need of custom alterations or a great tailor in Dallas, please visit Harry’s Tailor Shop. The screen shots below are of a few pages from the blog site for Harry’s Tailor Shop in Dallas (voted “Best Tailor in Dallas” by D Magazine!)  To view all the photos listed on the site view Harry’s FLICKR stream/page.

I’m not sure how I came across it, but I landed on the MCP Actions site/blog… and purchased some Photoshop actions. I was so excited to use them, as I’ve seen other phtoographer’s I’ve been following (on Twitter) and reading their blog use them, that I couldn’t wait! You’ll see the photos below have all been edited with some of the MCP Actions from the set “All in the Details,” “Magic Skin,” “Eye Doctor & Dentist,” and a couple others….

About 2 weekends ago I helped shoot photos for www.savordallas.com, that was a weekend long event at the Plaza of the Americas in Downtown Dallas. It was such a fun event!!! There were so many great restaurant vendors, wine & spirits vendors, dessert boothes, etc… All I can say is YUM! It was fun to get to taste things AND shoot photos.

Thanks, Neil! It was actually a lot of fun to shoot! I’m always a fan of food tastings :)

Lauren! These photos are amazing. They look like something right out of an Dallas Chamber of Commerce package.

“phtoographer’s”…is that Web 2.0 spelling? Just checking.

Yours truly,

Crys (web 2.0 spelling)
