From Our Editors

At one wedding he was commissioned to photograph, Rick encountered an album-destroying problem: the groom and groomsmen were all in the US Secret Service and insisted on not having their pictures taken. Not wanting to sacrifice the party's memories, Rick calmly assured them no one would ever discover their real identities, adjusted his camera's focus, and gathered the men into the frame. Later, as he developed the film, Rick kept his promise and retouched every photo in which the men appeared?by drawing a black censor bar over each of their eyes in permanent marker. Whether shooting events or private portraits, Rick continues to apply that same level of consideration as he documents the personalities of local families and high-school seniors, just as he's done for the past 25 years.

Though trained in lighting and composition as a traditional portrait photographer, Rick prefers to take a candid approach that lets his clients have fun with their sessions and be themselves. He snaps both black and white and vibrant color images, which can be retouched?another passion of his?by seamlessly integrating special effects, enhancing color and contrast, or replacing each subject's face with Benjamin Franklin's. Rick performs on-location sessions exclusively, finding life in backdrops as disparate as the middle of Congress Avenue and docks by the downtown lake, either of which he manipulates within the shutter to properly complement his subjects.

Austin Guide

The rest of the world may know Austin as primarily a music town, but there is so much more to the city. Austinites also like their unique food selections, their wild nights on the town, and are always finding ways to be creative. Whether one is ready to take a big bite out of this city, or just looking for something new to try, here’s an Austin guide to help.

It’s hard to talk about Austin music without mentioning the two biggest music-related Austin things to do: Austin City Limits and South by Southwest. The ACL Festival, which runs in October in Zilker Park, and SXSW, held in March, draw people from all over the world. Other Austin music venues of note include Antone’s on 5th Street and the rockabilly-leaning Continental Club on South Congress.

New on the restaurant scene but quickly becoming a favorite is Foreign and Domestic, a modern American diner that dishes up “comfort food” made with local ingredients. Meanwhile, Tex Mex gets a serious upgrade at Garrido’s in the Warehouse District. And satisfy your sweet tooth with a fried pie at Cutie Pies on Burnet Road.

When night begins to fall, Austinites swoop into bars, nightclubs, and taverns all over town. Among the most unique bars are the absinthe bar Péché on 4th Street, and the Live Oak Brewing Company over on 5th Street, where freshly brewed beer is a way of life. Local happy hours also make the bars great Austin deals.

Finally, a guide to Austin wouldn’t be complete without mentioning the things, people, and events that keep it “weird” and foremost is the Keep Austin Weird Festival and 5K held each June. Other off-the-wall activities include the unusual films presented at the Alamo Draft House, the “Night of the Bat” festival, and annual O. Henry Pun Off held each May. Get a taste of the real of the city and enjoy the wide variety of things to do in Austin.
