My Passion & My Work

Hey there and welcome to the Blueye Photography blog. My name is Troy and I'm a wedding and portrait photographer located in Austin Texas. I love making photos that are real... real moments, real smiles, real love. I'm not sure that I can put my photography style into a single category, but you can be sure that I'm looking for the best light and the most creative angles I can.

In my blog you'll find everything from sneak peeks of client sessions to personal information. My life is (almost) an open book and I like to share as much as I can. Most entries will include photos... this is a photographers blog after all. I also love feedback about my photography/posts/website/life so please comment as much as you like. I read them all and try to respond to each and every one.

After you've read through some posts and gotten to know a bit about me feel free to check out my portfolio site using the portfolio link above. The blog is updated more frequently than my site, but you won't want to miss checking out my portfolio either.

Thanks for stopping by.

It’s been a while

Yeah, I know… I’ve been slacking in the blog department lately.  The main reason is that I’ve decided to take a few weeks off and not shoot… trying to slow down at the end of the year and enjoy the holidays.  No shooting means I don’t have anything new to share.  Maybe I should go through my 2007 photos and pick out some favorites that y’all haven’t seen and post them.  I think I have an idea for a post this weekend :-).

For now I’d like to help any readers out who are doing some online shopping this season.  One the hardest things to get a sense of is whether or not the website where you just found the best price on those heated MP3 slippers is really legit.  Luckily there is a website that can help us figure that out.  Before you buy anything from a website you’ve never visited before go to and find the store and see what other people say about the site.  It could save you a headache and some lost money.

Another useful site is  On this site users tell the world about how a particular product sucks.  Use this site to find out if those heated MP3 slippers are a cool product or a dud.  This site will save you from being THAT guy… you know, the one who gave the worst Christmas gift this year.

Hope your Christmas preparations are going well and shopping has been fun.  We put up our tree about a week ago, but I still have to put the lights up outside.

Until next post.
