RE/MAX of Texas Statewide Convention 2013

I was the official RE/MAX of Texas photographer for the Statewide Convention 2013 in San Marcos. I coordinated two other professional photographers who contributed on the Saturday evening awards gala portion of the event.

Here are some photos I took during the event:





Jesse Medina receives debt-free home




Today, I took part in a surprise “Home for the Holidays” celebration event where the Texas Sentinels Foundation handed over the keys to a refurbished home to a wounded Afghanistan veteran.

As the event’s official photographer for the nonprofit organization, I feel honored to be able to help capture this moment in the Jesse Medina family’s life.

The Foundation alerted their family and close friends – and everyone kept the secret.

See more photos on the story, which I also wrote, on the Texas Sentinels Foundation website:

Thanks to Bank of America, Jesse Medina receives debt-free home


Here are the first three paragraphs of the story:

Marine Lance Corporal Jesse Medina and his family were surprised today by Bank of America and the Texas Sentinels Foundation with the keys to a debt-free, mortgage-free home in the Northcrest Village subdivision in Spring, Texas.

They thought they were going to a Texas Sentinels Foundation Christmas luncheon. They were — lunch was served — but they didn’t know friends, family and local media would be there to congratulate them on their new home.

The Marine and his wife, Megan, and son, Aidan, received the keys to their new 2,348-square foot, 3-bedroom, 2-1/2-bath home and saw it for the first time after a brief key presentation ceremony.

For most of the two-day convention, I wandered the hotel taking photos of some of the best Realtors in the state as they attended breakout sessions, received awards and networked, networked and networked.

The photos shown on this page were from the Friday evening “Fun Night” at the Moody Gardens Aquarium.


See a list of all photos that were taken during the event and links to all of the stories, on a page that I created and maintained:


Photo albums labeled “by RE/MAX of Texas” contain photos by myself and Philip Leung.

Here are a few more I took during other times:

Spring Commencement

It was graduation day at the University of Houston today, and I was assigned the task of shooting photos and getting them online as quickly as possible, with the help of a colleague.

We quickly put three photos up on the CLASS home page, and then we added the best shots to our Facebook page‘s photo album.

But I added even more to our not-so-frequently used Picasa web album. Here’s a Picasa Web Album slideshow of my favorite 100+ photos I took today:

Update: The album from Spring 2010 commencement can be found on the new CLASS website.

Here are some of my favorite shots:

My cousin’s getting married, so that means I’ve been tapped as the photographer, and my only condition was that I can use the photos on a Web site in an effort to tap into the lucrative wedding business.

By working for free. Go figure. … tell me what you think.
