Happy Super Bowl Sunday: Cowboys Stadium Revisited

Happy Super Bowl Sunday: Cowboys Stadium Revisited

While the entire country/world is scratching their heads about the snow covered visuals being shown of Cowboys Stadium who is playing host to this year’s Super Bowl, I thought I’d present something a little different, nice, dramatic, and non snow filled shots of the stadium. In 2009/2010 I spent quite a bit of time photographing […]

2010, What a Year!

2010, What a Year!

First off, let me say happy new year to all my dedicated readers.  While 2010 wasn’t the most prolific blogging year, it was a crazy year both professionally and personally.  Not only did I shoot over 70 projects this year I moved out west to San Francisco. I know you’re thinking, “Hey Blake, 70 projects […]

1,015,152 miles and counting

1,015,152 miles and counting

Like a thief in the night it finally happened, I hit 1,000,000 American Airlines miles.  Like most who have hit the million mile mark it is both a badge of pride and one of shame. Realizing you’ve flown around the circumference of the earth 40.22 times is very exciting.  Unfortunately the excitement sometimes is overtaken […]


Updates, Updates, and More Updates

Updates, Updates, and More Updates

Let me first apologize for how long it’s been since my last post.  I promise once you finish reading the following post you’ll understand. So where should I start? We could start off by saying I’ve been real busy shooting, or we could talk about the fact that my lovely and super talented wife is […]

Thought I’d check in with everyone and say hello as well as say sorry for the lack of posts the last couple of weeks.  Good news is I’ve been on the road for the last few weeks on some very exciting projects that I can’t wait to share.  I finally made it back out to […]

Blog: Under Construction…

For quite some time I’ve wanted to step the blog up to the next level.  Part of it has been wanting it to carry over the same look and feel as blakemarvin.com and the other part of it has just been a yearning for something different. Today I stumbled a across the great people at […]


Happy 100th post blog....PS I love you!

Happy 100th post blog….PS I love you!

At the beginning of 2009 I had an empty feeling in me.  After 5 years of non stop traveling to capture the stories of the projects and their designs I kept coming back from the shoots feeling like no one was telling my story.  Not the “there once was a boy name Blake who grew […]

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas

Quick post to wish everyone a Merry Christmas.  I thought it would appropriate to do one of my feet/flip-flop shots but halfway through I started to second guess my idea as Dallas got a very unusal “snow storm” on Christmas Eve.  Either way, enjoy and have a great holiday.  Will post an end of year […]

Action Shot

Action Shot

Thought I would share this hilarious outtake/light test from a corporate headshot by my buddy and colleague Daryl Shields was shooting in the studio this Friday.  This is what happens when you put two photographers in a room together….hilarity ensues.  Enjoy


The most amazing picture(s) I've ever seen

The most amazing picture(s) I’ve ever seen

7 months ago while out to dinner with my brother Ryan and his wife Jacque I was shown what I thought to be at the time the most amazing image I’d ever seen.  This image was not of a serene landscape, or that of a pritzker prize winning piece of architecture.  This image was the […]

Life: Updates

Life: Updates

I know it’s been a week or so since my last blog post but lots has happened despite the lack of postings.  Immediately after I hit the ground from the Bahamas (read 1,2) I locked myself in my office to put as much of a dent as possible on the imagery from the Cowboy’s shoot. […]

Been a long time since I rock and rolled

Sorry for the lack of posts.  Since my shoot at the Ritz Carlton in Bachelor Gulch I’ve been swamped with post production work back at the office combined with coming down with a nasty cold right before I headed out this week to Phoenix for a shoot.  But I’m back in Dallas (for a couple […]
