Just standing at 5’2 feet tall, Eva Longoria is not tall by any standard. But when she enters a room...her presence and confidence is that of a giant. She is strong willed and passionate about her causes. I have documented her on almost every one of her dozen trips that she has made to the Nation’s Capital over the last four years speaking about fundraising for the National Museum of the American Latino Commission, raising awareness about child-labor abuses in agriculture, the death of Small Business Administration programs for Latino entrepreneurs, and, of course, immigration reform. Richard S. Dunham of the San Francisco Gate called her a "Democratic Powerhouse.”

I recently spent a week in New York City documenting fashion week. I knew I wanted to get something different than I normally do. So I decided to keep a Holga and a Polaroid Colorpack II Instant Film Camera by my side. With these cameras sometimes you lose and sometimes you win.

On an early friday morning in mid January, I had the opportunity to photograph Mario Castillo in his Washington DC home and at the Lincoln Memorial for an article for San Angelo Standard-Times newspaper. They were doing an article about his work as a lobbyist for non-profits. He was very photogenic and we bonded quickly over our love of art.

Some of us are old enough to remember our parents snapping family photos with the old style Polaroid cameras. The ones that you had to pull the emulsion away from the photo to see what you got.
I decided this inauguration, I wanted to get something different..something that couldn't and shouldn't be created with Instagram. I borrowed an old Polaroid land camera from a friend, spent 60 bucks on film and went to town. Below are four images from yesterday's inauguration on the mall.

This past year I had the opportunity to meet and photograph Dawson Rough, an energetic boy from South West Pennsylvania. Like any young boy Dawson was outgoing, a huge sports fanatic and loves spending time wrestling his father. He was born with achondroplasia, the most common type of dwarfism. The same type of dwarfism that I have. Like me, he decided with is family to have limb lengthening done to his legs. This time around he was able to get around 4 inches in just over two months. If he decides to, he will have two to three limb lengthening operations done over the coming years.
