TRIBEZA MAKES A PICNIC
TRIBEZA visited one of the best markets in town, the Texas Farmers’ Market in the Mueller community, to make our very own DIY picnic. The market sits in the middle of an expansive family-friendly park replete with a glittering lake, scenic hike and bike trails, a children’s playground and lush lawns, which makes finding a sunny spot for your spread a breeze.
BEHIND THE SCENES:
For "The Beekeeper," a feature story in the April 2016 issue of TRIBEZA, Austin photographer Matt Rainwaters returned to his roots, swapping out his Digital SLR for a Wista 4X5 film camera. During this early morning shoot, I captured some behind the scenes footage of Rainwaters photographing Tara Chapman, local owner of Two Hives Honey, and whose work was the subject of the story. Watch to see how this unique story came together.
REDESIGN PROMO FOR TRIBEZA'S 15TH
To celebrate and promote TRIBEZA's 15th Anniversary issue and to help launch their redesign, I produced and edited this video featuring covers from the magazine's fifteen-year history of covering the arts and culture scene in Austin. A bit of movie magic for you: the covers are not acutally falling down. These shots were achieved by holding the magazine in one hand and holding the camera (i.e., my iPhone) in the other. Tada!
I photographed a DIY recipe blog for Tribeza.com that featured local summer treats from six Austin businesses that keep us cool in the scorching heat: Blenders & Bowls, GoodPop, hopdoddy burger bar, Lick Honest Ice Creams, JuiceLand and P. Terry's Burger Stand. At the end of the (yummy) shoot, I captured this short promo video for TRIBEZA's social media channels.

THURSDAY NIGHT THROWDOWN
Every month, Austin Coffee Society invites skilled baristas from all over Austin and central Texas gather to compete in a head-to-head latte art competition. TRIBEZA magazine asked me to cover the monthly event for their July Makers Issue. Between the hiss of hot steam, the carefully poured lattes, and the raucous crowd, this high octane event was a jolt of energy in itself.
