Communication Graphics Inc. by Patrick Lane


This is yet another sample of my work in use. This is my good friend and fellow photographer, Saul, or Salsa as I like to call him. He loves life, his family, and cars. As if you couldn't tell by the smile on his face, he loves his 1968 Impala coupe. This was such a fun shoot and the proof is in the pudding.  This photograph is in my printed portfolio, and continues to be one of my favorite photographs I've ever produced.

USAA Advertisement by Patrick Lane

When I was a teenager my brothers and I would visit my father in Boerne, a little German town just northwest of San Antonio.  We would travel into nearby San Antonio to visit friends, shop and dine, and explore.  I remember driving by the gigantic USAA complex and wondering "what the heck goes on in this place?" I never thought as a child that I would be photographing advertisements for the company as an adult. Thanks for hiring me to photograph your ad! USAA started out in 1924 as the United States Army Automobile Association by a group of U.S. Army officers to self-insure each other because they were unable to get auto insurance due to the notion that soldiers were a high-risk group. Today, United Services Automobile Association (USAA) is one of the top ten automobile insurance providers in the country. USAA now employs more than 21,500 employees throughout the United States, and was ranked 45th on Fortune Magazine's list of the "100 Best Companies to Work For."

So, props to USAA for providing a great service to our military and their families!  And a special thanks to Phil Foster and Tatiana Luneva-Evenchik for deciding to work with me.  It was a pleasure to work with you both.



EdTech Magazine by Patrick Lane

I recently photographed Mimi Morrison and David Carpenter of Huffman ISD for EdTech Magazine, a CDW publication with Nell Whiting of TMG Custom Media. Mimi and David were very nice to work with. They were complete opposites, but they complimented each other very well. It's nice to see how technology is helping keep schools safer for students and faculty.  We've come a long way from bullying on the playground, and now big brother (or the big Principal) might bust you for being a bully. No more arguments about who pushed who first. Remember kids, nobody likes a bully.

Hot Tub Time Machine by Patrick Lane



If you haven't seen Hot Tub Time Machine, it's truly worth your time.  It'll have you laughing in no time.  During the opening credits you can see a photograph we did in an actual Hot Tub Time Machine, minus the time machine. Sorry for the low quality screen grab, it's doctored a bit to make it more visible.

Molly Glentzer - Amazing Writer by Patrick Lane

Sometimes a blog shouldn't just be about yourself.  I'm wanting to take this opportunity to talk about our wonderful friend and collaborator, Molly Glentzer. Molly's an amazing and caring person who's full of more nouns, verbs, and adjectives than a well-played game of scrabble.  She's currently a contributing writer at the Houston Chronicle and various other publications.  We met while working together with the Rigamarole publications for Diamond Offshore. She also has a blog via the Houston Chronicle covering gardening and one of her passions, flowers, more specifically, roses.  It is available with an RSS feed.

Molly's currently working with us on some upcoming promotional pieces.

South Texas College of Law by Patrick Lane

Here are some featured images from our shoot with South Texas College of Law.  Our liaisons, Sue Cox, David Powell and Cheryl Mc Entire were a pleasure to work with.  They gave me excellent direction and the proof is the pudding! I look forward to working with them again on future projects.

Midway Companies by Patrick Lane

I had a wonderful time in Houston working on Midway Companies' annual report, in conjunction with Ron Brady and Liz Horner at The Dealey Group in Dallas.  Our biggest challenge was making six different photographs appear as one image during post production.
