GTECH Employees


We were recently commissioned by global lottery operator GTECH to shoot a series of real people portraits at their facilities in Texas.  Locations included their USA lottery mission control center, a central warehouse containing millions of lottery tickets and a technology development center.  Suffice to say, security was tight and presented some interesting production challenges!

Graphis Gold

I’m proud to announce that “Check Up” has brought home Gold in the Graphis annual.  We worked with new talent art director and Austin Creative Department alumni Jon Coyle on this.



One of our frequent collaborators, food styling genius Tina Bell-Stamos is featured in this piece on Zagat today.  I shot this candid of her on the set of a Still-Motion production a few weeks ago.  Great work, Tina!

It’s pecan pie season, which is the best kind of season.  A few weeks ago we shot this pecan farm in rural Caldwell, TX for a feature in Texas Monthly.  500 acres, thousands of trees, friendly farmers.
