Damage Destruction and Hope
I made a trip down to the Texas Gulf Coast earlier this month, and was blown away by the damage from Hurricane Harvey, and by the fact that the mainstream media has already packed up and left. It seems, once again, that if nobody’s sitting around waiting for rescue, begging for help, that according to the MSM’s standards; it must not be a story anymore. They tend to move on quickly nowadays, searching for the basest of emotional denominators.
New Photography added in 2017 to Shannon Drawe Photography
The galleries are coming together now. As I said, the art images will be for sale here – probably sometime in February. Meanwhile, I am about to prepare some images from a group I shot awhile back, the “Blurs.” Read more…

I am headed for Houston, Texas, later this week to do some more photography for Texas CEO Magazine. This Thursday evening finds me in one of the Federal buildings in Houston.
Then, it’s back to Edom, Texas, for some leisurely work for Cimarrona. Never a dull moment!
I am still making progress on the redesign of this site, and hope you will keep your eyes open for new photography that appears here every week. I am dragging content, that’s been holding for the new site, from every crevice, and it should appear in a post just before it goes live on the site.

It is fun to see great minds at work, and at TWU there’s plenty of brain work and great minds at work. We do a lot of photography in science and health related schools at TWU, and if you’re up on current trends, you know that’s where the jobs are.

I made the switch last night, and we have a new theme for this site – Shannon Drawe Photography. It has some work still needed, but I was very happy with most things about the transition. Take a good hard look at the site, and let me know if you find any cracks.
Before images are added to the galleries, they will appear here on a consistent basis. Thanks for reading, and more importantly LOOKing at my photography. I know you will be surprised by what’s written on the “ABOUT ME” page, so have a look – ABOUT ME.
Summers in North Texas can cook the heck out of just about anything.
Around here we enjoy our summers but they always end right on time. The first signs are signs of new lives at TWU and UNT campuses, cars going down one-way streets the wrong way, bright shiny faces at all the dive bars … the usual signs. And work picks up in anticipation of new needs for promotional and publicity photography.
I was counting the other day, and I think we are in the neighborhood of thirteen years association with Texas Woman’s University, at both the Dallas and Denton locations. It has been a wonderful association with a creative final product. It does make me wonder where other universities in the area get their day-to-day photography. Specifically, Southern Methodist University and Texas Christian University in Dallas and Fort Worth respectively, don’t show many signs of freelance photography. I guess it is an institutional norm. UNT, at about 45-thousand students, is a behemoth of a conglomerate where budgets can be big and small, and ruled by different department’s criteria. It’s a great place to work when those stars align.
I occasionally wonder where some of the students at these universities look for professional connections. It used to be I had a revolving door of paid interns, but even though the local professors know the phone number, I guess reality isn’t on the curriculum anymore. If a student really wants to learn – FAST – have a go at www.livephotolessons.com. I realize I created a concept well ahead of its time, but I always have to plug it to see if anyone has caught up yet!
Coming in September – just booked another photo shoot including sitting Texas Governor Rick Perry in Denton, Texas. That should be a blast. The fall also means campaigns go into full swing, and I get the feeling there is going to be a pretty good turnout on the National level this time around.

As luck would have it, I was in one place doing one thing, and ended up doing something entirely different. Love the location and the old boat dock. There will be a series to follow sometime in the future, but really want to get back to this place to do some winter work.
