Westminster Glen

The highest compliment I can receive is a referral from a fellow photographer.  James Bruce contacted me this week and asked if I could pinch hit for him, and I was glad to oblige.  The assignment was a single-story limestone home in Westminster Glen, off of City Park Road, for the Gene Arant Team of KW/Lake Travis.

The State Theater, or as we call it now…

Stateside at the Paramount, run by the same organization as it’s older brother, The Paramount Theatre, was built in 1935 by the Interstate Theater Circuit as Austin’s first from-the-ground-up movie house.  It remained in service until the early 1970s.  Since then, the State has been home to several theater companies, and is now emerging as a multi-discipline venue, booking live music, theatrical performances, comedy and of course movies, now shown in HD digital.

I’ve had the opportunity to photograph the State a few times recently.  Here are a few samples of what will become a body of work chronicling Stateside at the Paramount’s rebirth and evolution into one of Downtown Austin’s newest destination venues.

Multi-level home from the 1970s ready for a second chance

One of my favorite bar trivia buddies is now the office manager of the Papasan Team at Keller Williams SWMC.  Rosalyn contacted me to shoot their new listing near Spicewood Springs and Loop 360 in Northwest Austin.  This is a very clever, multi-level home in a great spot, just crying out for a second chance as a cool pad.  Every bedroom exits to a patio!  There is a ton of space inside, and endless entertainment space outside.  Who is up for the challenge?
