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.

Hello 2009!!

Happy New Year!  It’s hard to believe that it’s already 2009.  Where does the time go and who can I talk to about slowing it down a bit?

New year’s day is always a mix for me.  I’m not a fan of pork and sauerkraut nor black eyed peas so I’m unlucky in both Pennsylvania (where I grew up) and Texas (where I live)… I look forward to setting goals for the year ahead… and I like to look back at all of the accomplishments that me, my family, and friends have made over the past year.  I’m happy to be moving forward… making progress, but I’m also sad to say goodbye to another wonderful year.  So, for the first time on this blog I’ve put together a “Year in Photos” slideshow.  It has over 250 photos and moves very fast so hang on (and if it stops a few times to load try pausing it for a bit and letting it download the rest of the show). I don’t really have a resolution list for 2009… I do, however, have an ever growing to-do list (containing boring things like get an annual physical, hang new light in guest bathroom, get to the endodontist to get my crown checked, etc).

Whether you have a to-do list like me or a more traditional resolution list, here’s to accomplishing everything we plan to do in 2009!
