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.

I am…

I have a huge list of photographer’s blogs that I watch and this list popped up on the Perez Photography blog today and I thought it would make for a great post tonight.

I AM … a proud American.
I WANT… to feel secure in my future.
I HAVE … the most loving, caring, and supportive family.
I KEEP… underestimating the strength of others.
I WISH I COULD … have more faith.
I RARELY … watch the sun set.
I CRY WHEN I WATCH … sappy movies and I’ve had a bad day.
I AM NOT ALWAYS … rational.
I HATE THAT … I care so much what others think of me.
I’M CONFUSED ABOUT … where I want my career to lead me.
I NEED … to clean my office more often.
I SHOULD … definitely get more sleep.

And what good is a blog post without photos? Here are a couple of photos from Amy’s bridal session.

Miscellaneous Monday #11

Another week, another Monday. Today was a loooong day and I’m really tired so this will be a short post.

Yesterday I set a record for the number of hits on my blog (no I’m not going to post the actual total because I’m sure it’s way below the larger sites on the web). Thank you for visiting though :)
While at WPPI I bought Nik Color Efex Pro 3.0… I’m going to have some fun!

I did manage to watch a few of the college basketball games over the weekend. I’m happy to see that my Longhorns made it to the sweet 16. They’ll need to bring their A game next Friday when they play Stanford, though.
If you haven’t heard of Amy Seeley before reading this you really should check out her site. I heard her perform at Jesh’s platform class at WPPI and I was blown away. She is something special.

Miscellaneous Monday #10 (bridal edition)

I will be leaving for Las Vegas tomorrow morning and won’t be back in Austin until late Wednesday night 3/19. I will be checking email periodically so if you need to get in touch with me while I’m away email is the best way to do it.
I’m going to be very short with my post here and get right to the images because I need to go finish packing. Here are Kendra’s bridals… finally (I would love to post these right after we shoot them, but that could spoil the surprise if we have a curious groom… so we wait until after the wedding to post them). Enjoy!
