At almost every one of his family?s events, Durwin Randle found himself behind the camera. When a niece blew out her first birthday candle, he was there. Before long, he became the family?s unofficial documentarian. When his mother passed, he wanted to do something special to commemorate her life. He knew that photography was his medium, but he wanted to see if he could get more out of still images. He created a slide show of sorts, a video of images with some meaningful songs that together explored her life and told its story. The project proved very popular, and others wondered if Durwin could do the same thing for them. He went into business under the title of PhotoVid Gallery, taking pictures and turning them into videos, cards, invitations, and other printed designs.
Today, with the help of his wife and business partner Sherronda Randle, he bustles around Houston, meeting clients on-location. While Durwin handles the technical end of things, Sherronda specializes in putting clients at ease and getting them to smile. Together, they create albums and slide shows to commemorate weddings, advertise businesses, and celebrate anniversaries.

To keep the spirit of its musical roots ever near, House of Blues Houston keeps a metal box of mud from the Delta Mississippi beneath its stage and proudly displays the traditional crazy quilt. As the only venue in the revered chain to be built vertically rather than free floating, House of Blues Houston stands as a pillar of entertainment in the Houston Pavilions complex. The hot spot’s Bronze Peacock Room commemorates Houston's rich history and the blues clubs where Lightnin' Hopkins and Big Mama Thornton held sway, and features an enormous hand-painted mural depicting other local legends such as Albert Collins and Johnny "Guitar" Watson.
As the fourth-largest city in the U.S., Houston is dazzlingly diverse?its residents come from all over the country and the globe, bringing their unique sense of personal style with them. In 2007, a group of models and fashion photographers founded Houston Fashion Week to bridge the local, national, and international fashion scenes with events at venues across Houston. Designers from Africa and South America join local talent in presenting collections of women's daywear and eveningwear, menswear, swimwear, jewelry, and accessories. Fashion Week also helps young local models connect with their more established industry peers, and its organizers donate a portion of the proceeds to charities, rather than just using them to sew tons of ball gowns from dollar bills.
