Its an offer I am only making for this weekend.
All you have to do is say ME ME ME!
When you say ME ME ME, we will pick a time on sunday, get together, and in 30-45 minutes I will have the shot I need to make you a superstar*.
Give me a day or two, your image will be ready and I will give you a digital copy which you can use on any of your social media networks.
If you like what you see, you will have an option of buying a high resolution digital image, or a print of any of the other shots from the day.
What are you waiting for?
I am proud to announce that I am donating a photography package to the silent auction for Hillary Marek and the benefit that will be happening on Sunday March 18th 2012. I hope that you will able to attend the show, its sure to be great music, great friends and a great time.
On Jan. 22, Hillary Marek and her son Ryan Jr (we all know him as
Squishy) were brutally attacked. Hillary was beaten, strangled, and
almost killed. Their attacker was arrested for state felony charges
of: assault on a family member/ assault on a house hold member/
assault by impaired breathing. Due to this violent attack they have
sustained lengthy medical and therapeutic bills, had to move often
while hiding from the attacker, lost all of their belongings, and
are being denied any form of government assistance due to Hillary’s past income for this year. Because she worked/lived with her attacker she has not been able to return to work or home to gather any of her
belongings or get Houston Underground Radio back on the air. All of us in the music industry think that is unfair! We have all know Hillary
to be charitable and the first one to help out anytime some one has
asked with out fail. This time she has not asked us for help but we
are going to anyway.
I am here to introduce myself as the new producer of Houston Underground. My name is Derek Norman. You might know me from my company Advantage Point Video, or the non profit Rockumentary I am working on with Hillary, ‘Heavy in Houston’. I have collaborated with a few bands that are close with Hillary and Squishy, not to mention Concert Pub North’s owner J.D. -who has worked many a benefit with her – who are all wanting to throw something together to help them out in this time of need. We need more bands, a street team to get the invites out all over facebook, twitter, google+ and cellphone blasts, and as many auction-able items as y’all can gather. Also, Hillary and Squishy have no furniture nor anything to move in to a place of their own, so if you have anything to donate let me know. We are going to try to have a truck available to take furniture donations, toys, food, ect. Keep in mind they lost EVERYTHING. Hillary is working a part time job, but it is only covering the cost of daycare, and they have no more savings to stay where they are at.

Have you seen me at one of your shows? Do you want your photos but haven’t contacted me yet? Now is the time! Starting today, Thanksgiving through the end of the weekend I am giving away the photo sets of your band for over half off. That’s right, get your pictures for the low price of $20! You get them digitally without water marks so you can use them on your web page, Facebook, ReverbNation, etc. etc. Don’t miss this chance.
Most of the bands that I have shot are in the live gallery. Don’t see your band? Contact me.
Contact me if you would like to purchase your images at John@BigJohnsPhotography.com or give me a call or text at 281.756.7056
The bad news: I will not be out shooting shows like I had been previously. I love doing it, have meet some amazing people and had some amazing times with some of Houston’s best musicians, but it’s simply not sustainable for me right now. I will however be shooting shows by invite, I offer reasonable rates, if anyone needs my service. I absolutely hate to have to make this choice, but hopefully it won’t last too long.
The good news: I am currently working on expanding my portfolio. Bands, musicians models and artists, it’s time to get with me. If you are available to help me with my portfolio, I have some amazing offered to make you. Help me, help you. It’s a win win like never before. I’d really like to work with you.
Well it has finally happened. Zombies have infiltrated the network here at Big John’s Photography, and as such things have gone a little bit insane!

Have a Happy Halloween!
Many of you know that I frequent Metal Night at the Abbey Pub, an event held on the last thursday of every month. Some of the best metal bands in town play here on this night and I highly encourage you to come check it out and have your ear drums thrashed. With Halloween coming up, and zombies being all the rage these days the fine folks behind Metal Night have set up a Zombie Metal Night!
This show is going to surely be one for the record books, with bands like Cerebral Rot, Cavernous, and Sloshtown playing and I of course, will be in attendance providing zombie photography. The Abbey Pub set up this incredible post apocalyptic zombie scene in the bar, so for everyone that comes dressed up will have the opportunity to have your picture made! It’s sure to be pretty killer (ha…ha…) so don’t miss out.
Next week you will be able to come by here where there will be a link for the photos. Go check it out, and if you like your photo there will be various options to make sure you get to have a copy, so make sure you come check back.
I have seen what some of the folks that are going to be there have done with their zombie makeup, so bring your A game if you want to even be a contender in the zombie costume contest. This one isn’t for the faint of heart.
