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.

Miscellaneous Monday #20

Evening faithful blog readers.  This week’s miscellaneous Monday post will be short since I’m running low on energy and need to get some sleep.

I should have written about this a few weeks ago, but congratulations to my friends Chrissy and Brent back in Pennsylvania.  Brent recently popped the question and Chrissy said yes.  Y’all might be in the need of a wedding photographer… hint hint.


What I’m listening to while typing this: Satisfaction by Benny Benassi & The Biz


T-minus 3 weeks until the new iPhone is released.  Though I am planning on getting one I am not going to wait in line at the Apple store for one.  I may swing by on my way home from work and if it’s crazy busy I’ll wait until Sunday to pick one up (Saturday I’ll be shooting Brian and Jeni’s wedding)


I’ve been thinking about picking up another Drobo recently so I can separate my music and file backup from my photography biz files.  I love the Drobo and if you have no idea what it is you should check it out.


My Wii Fit age went up to 30… probably because of my lazy weekend, but I’ll be working on bringing that back down where it belongs.

Miscellaneous Monday #18

Yesterday was my 100th post.  That’s quite a milestone.  It doesn’t feel like I’ve posted that much, but I guess I have.  So far it’s been fun sharing my work, my words, and my life with y’all.  I’m working on a little plan to boost the number of comments.  Look for a post about it in about a week.


Who wants a new iPhone?  ooooh… ooooh… me, me, me… I do :)


I don’t know if y’all have watched the first 2 games of the NBA finals between the Boston Celtics and the Los Angeles Lakers, but I’m happy to say that the Celtics are up 2 games to 0.  I don’t know that got into the Boston water supply in the past few years, but that city has become the center of athletic excellence.  If the Bruins could have put together a playoff run Boston could have had all of their major sporting teams make it to the championship games.  Now, I’m not a Laker hater and I should be a Kobe fan since he hails from Philly, but I just can’t get behind the guy.  He has amazing skills, but he is more than little bit arrogant.


No I haven’t given up running, but the past few weeks have seriously derailed my attempt to reach my 10 minute mile goal.  I will start back up and will get back to reporting my progress.


On a somewhat similar note (fitness), if you have a Wii and you haven’t played the Wii Fit you are seriously missing out.  Both our friends Holly and Katie have it and we spent many hours on it this weekend.  Some of the games are addicting, others are strenuous, some are silly, and some are very difficult, but they are all fun.  If I’m not running I should be increasing my Wii fitness… of course that’s if I can find one of my own.  They are sold out everywhere and Ebayer’s are making a pretty penny off of reselling them.  I can wait… I have a treadmill to get on.
