Kevin Floyd of The Hay Merchant

I recently photographed Kevin Floyd, the self proclaimed owner/beer guy at The Hay Merchant here in Houston. Although I've never been there at night, The Hay Merchant sounds like my kind of place because they have televisions, interesting decor and the beer list is long as hell. For part of the shoot, I took Kevin over the the adjacent restaurant, Underbelly, where a lot of the beer is stored. As a side note, I went to that restaurant with my wife, my homey Phelps and Tom Sietsema (in spirit) and the food was incredible. Anyway, big shout to Kevin for enduring a keg as a seat, all for the good of the shoot.  


Julia Heymach - Texas State Cross Country Champion

Julia Heymach, junior cross country state champion from Lamar High School, was named girls runner of the year for the third consecutive year by the Houston Chronicle. She finally took home the state championship after finishing second as a freshman and third as a sophomore. Big shout to Julia for coming to school on the first day of her Christmas break to take a bunch of photos. On another note, did y'all know that Lamar High's class of '87 buried a time capsule that is scheduled to be unearthed in 2037? Can't wait!
