Drink and Click™ founder Juan Gonzalez and I were joined by talented photographers and chapter leaders Michael Bonocore, Kate Siobhan Havercroft, Christi Nielsen, Jackie Burroughs Anderson, and Devon Bell. We talked about what we do at Drink and Click™ and how it started. There are some great stories and photo shares from the chapters they lead, discussion of architecture photography, a generous assortment of “that’s what she said” jokes, and fun and merriment all around.
We ended by announcing the winners of April’s Architecture Challenge – Joel Horwath, Kenny Shepard, and Jeff Matsuya (1st, 2nd, and 3rd). Congratulations, guys! Great work. Thanks so much to our prize sponsors: SmugMug, XUME Adapters http://www.xumeadapters.com, and Trey Ratcliff‘s Stuck In Customs.
Remember to watch us every month on the second Wednesday at 9:30 PM CST. We think you’ll enjoy yourselves, and you never know who (or what) you might see on the show!
There’s a rumor that Juan drank 7 beers before we even got through the technical difficulties at the beginning of our attempt to broadcast. See what you think…

Holly is a photographer who, among other things, does a series of photos called “The Mug Chronicles” that always make me want a(nother) cup of coffee. I was delighted that she asked me to do a conversation for the inspiring photography website Mortal Muses. I enjoyed the required introspection and I hope that readers find the piece interesting. Let me know what you think and feel free to leave comments on the post – I’ll check in there to answer any questions.
Fear and self-doubt are the deadly enemies of creativity. Don’t invite either into your mind.
At first I was so upset with myself for getting “too busy” and forgetting to take a self portrait this past week. Then, suddenly, I remembered something pretty important. I decided to do this project, and the only way I fail is if I say I do.
So here’s my place holder. I took it in January, but I processed it last week. Going forward, I will continue to do my best to take a self portrait each week…and if I don’t, then… I’ll just have another mojito, get over it, and make more art!
what would I give to start all over again
to clean up my mistakes
stand in the moonlight, stand under Heaven
wait for an answer, hold out forever
but don’t be afraid anymore…

I don’t normally take on portrait clients. There is no particular reason other than that I’ve never really made it a focus or dedicated time to it. I guess I do more in the creative arts arena than clientele work, but I have done a few portrait shoots, and I usually enjoy them. Last year I did a Senior Portrait Shoot with the lovely Linzey Weden. She is a delightful person and was a joy to photograph. I have the pleasure of doing the same thing for her brother Preston this weekend! Should be fun.
