Bauer Leadership- Spring/Summer issue of Inside Bauer Magazine

Spring/Summer issue of Inside Bauer Magazine
by Houston commercial photographer – Nicki Evans Photography

Since it’s the time of year when I begin photographing the people who make up the University of Houston’s Bauer College of Business for the next issue of Inside Bauer Magazine, I suppose it’s also time to share portraits from the last issue.

The spring/summer issue of Inside Bauer is packed with stories of leaders within the college and leaders in the community who have connections with the Bauer College. To read the incredible stories of those leaders, hear their interviews in the videos and to see a few portraits, visit the online version of the magazine here: Inside Bauer – Spring/Summer 2017

As with all publications, there are only a few photographs that make the final cut of the magazine because of space. To see more photographs and my favorites that were made in the spring, continue scrolling through the blog.

To lead things off, I’m going to introduce Preston Boyer. I could probably devote a whole blog to his photos, because they were so much fun to make. Preston has created his own clothing line and is making a name for himself in Houston and the fashion scene beyond. You can check out his site here: Preston Douglas

For Preston’s portraits, we wanted to match the look of photographs on his website (clean and full of white space) and his Instagram (think old Polaroid snapshots).1_NEvansPhotos_Houston_Portrait_Photographer_Inside_Bauer_College_Commercial__00031_NEvansPhotos_Houston_Portrait_Photographer_Inside_Bauer_College_Commercial__00011_NEvansPhotos_Houston_Portrait_Photographer_Inside_Bauer_College_Commercial__00041_NEvansPhotos_Houston_Portrait_Photographer_Inside_Bauer_College_Commercial__0002

If you don’t watch any other video from this issue of the magazine, at least watch Preston’s story. It’s pretty inspiring…and I might make a cameo 😉

Next up is Aishah. Since I tend to have to photograph in the same places over and over at Bauer, we have to get creative sometime to make a set that looks like something other than a classroom. This is a great example of doing that. We photographed Aishah in an event center, but wanted to make it look more like a home office. Coincidentally, Aishah’s  dark salmon-colored pants went perfectly with our teal and earthy colored decor.1_NEvansPhotos_Houston_Portrait_Photographer_Inside_Bauer_College_Commercial__00051_NEvansPhotos_Houston_Portrait_Photographer_Inside_Bauer_College_Commercial__0006
Bauer is obviously a college, so I rarely photograph anyone under the age of 18 when doing UH work. For Porfirio’s portraits, I got to use my natural light, family portrait skills to photograph him with his youngest son and daughter. We wanted to showcase how he leads not only on campus and in the military, but also at home too as a husband and father.1_NEvansPhotos_Houston_Portrait_Photographer_Inside_Bauer_College_Commercial__00071_NEvansPhotos_Houston_Portrait_Photographer_Inside_Bauer_College_Commercial__00081_NEvansPhotos_Houston_Portrait_Photographer_Inside_Bauer_College_Commercial__0009
The Wolff Center for Entrepreneurship (WCE) is one of the top entrepreneurship programs in the country. This issue of the magazine feature stories on two of the WCE teams. For the first story, my art direction included portraits that were shot through a window. That was something new for me, but it turned out to be a fun challenge. 1_NEvansPhotos_Houston_Portrait_Photographer_Inside_Bauer_College_Commercial__0015
The second WCE team to be featured had taken a trip to Japan to study international business, so the art direction was for stock-like images of young travelers. We asked the students to wear clothes they would typically travel in and to bring a few mementos from their trip. 1_NEvansPhotos_Houston_Portrait_Photographer_Inside_Bauer_College_Commercial__00161_NEvansPhotos_Houston_Portrait_Photographer_Inside_Bauer_College_Commercial__00171_NEvansPhotos_Houston_Portrait_Photographer_Inside_Bauer_College_Commercial__00181_NEvansPhotos_Houston_Portrait_Photographer_Inside_Bauer_College_Commercial__00191_NEvansPhotos_Houston_Portrait_Photographer_Inside_Bauer_College_Commercial__0020
After this next session, I decided all portrait sessions going forward should include confetti. Because why? Why not? It makes everyone smile! To know more about Kiery, read her story.1_NEvansPhotos_Houston_Portrait_Photographer_Inside_Bauer_College_Commercial__00211_NEvansPhotos_Houston_Portrait_Photographer_Inside_Bauer_College_Commercial__0022
If you live in Houston and need a new park to visit, check out Smither Park. It isn’t your typical park with lots of trees and nature. It’s more of a concrete park…full of tile mosaics. It’s really pretty unique, and most of it is very colorful. We chose this simpler white wall as the backdrops for Camille’s portraits.1_NEvansPhotos_Houston_Portrait_Photographer_Inside_Bauer_College_Commercial__0023
I mentioned that Preston’s portrait session was my favorite for the issue. That was true. But this black and white image is my favorite single image of the issue and one of my favorites portraits I’ve ever made. If you visited my homepage first, you’ll notice it’s the main art. 1_NEvansPhotos_Houston_Portrait_Photographer_Inside_Bauer_College_Commercial__0025
In addition to the dramatic image of David Suttles, we also made a more straightforward image, so you could see his face a bit better. 1_NEvansPhotos_Houston_Portrait_Photographer_Inside_Bauer_College_Commercial__0024
Next at bat (pun intended) is Trey Wilkinson who I photographed at Minute Maid Park. From day to day, you may find him wearing a suit and tie as a wealth manager or a ball cap as baseball official. Take me out to the ballgame…1_NEvansPhotos_Houston_Portrait_Photographer_Inside_Bauer_College_Commercial__00271_NEvansPhotos_Houston_Portrait_Photographer_Inside_Bauer_College_Commercial__0026
If you recognize Maria Rios, you may have seen her on Blue Collar Millionaire. I photographed Maria at Nation Waste, Inc. where she leads the first Latina-owned waste-removal company in the US, doing business with the likes of Super Bowl LI. The day of Maria’s portraits, it rained on and off. We started with a few portraits in the boardroom, just in case the rain ruined our outdoor plans, then headed outdoors to photograph her with her fleet in between rain showers. 1_NEvansPhotos_Houston_Portrait_Photographer_Inside_Bauer_College_Commercial__00291_NEvansPhotos_Houston_Portrait_Photographer_Inside_Bauer_College_Commercial__0028
Penny Davis’s portraits were made on another rainy day. Some days you just have to roll with the punches and dance in the rain, so that’s precisely what we did…with a few safe, indoor shots first. 1_NEvansPhotos_Houston_Portrait_Photographer_Inside_Bauer_College_Commercial__00351_NEvansPhotos_Houston_Portrait_Photographer_Inside_Bauer_College_Commercial__0036
The next photographs were taken in a Walmart Distribution Center in Sealy, where Mireo Latham leads quite a team. He gave me a tour of the massive facility to select the location for his portraits. It was quite impressive to see how those conveyor belts work, sending these boxes here and those boxes there. 1_NEvansPhotos_Houston_Portrait_Photographer_Inside_Bauer_College_Commercial__0030
To round out this issue of Inside Bauer, I’ll share a couple of images from the cover story.  The first one is a strong black and white image. This is another example of trying to find a new way to photograph in the same buildings I always use. In three years of work with UH, I’d never made a portrait on this staircase, even though I have photographed many events surrounding it.1_NEvansPhotos_Houston_Portrait_Photographer_Inside_Bauer_College_Commercial__0037
And last, a set of vibrant images to show off a vibrant life. Noha is one of my favorite Bauer grads. She and I had previously met at many Bauer events, but I since I never had the chance to make her portraits, I was excited to finally have that opportunity. Even though the portrait session didn’t take long, I enjoyed getting to hang out with Noha briefly. If you need a few words of wisdom, check out her Instagram feed. It’s always worth the read. 1_NEvansPhotos_Houston_Portrait_Photographer_Inside_Bauer_College_Commercial__00381_NEvansPhotos_Houston_Portrait_Photographer_Inside_Bauer_College_Commercial__0039
That’s a wrap for the first half of photographing Bauer in 2017. Six months from now, you’ll probably have a new set of Bauer portraits to view. Thanks for taking the time to view my portraits!

Faces of Business – The #IamBauer campaign

Faces, Houstonians

The #IAmBauer campaign
by Houston commercial photographer – Nicki Evans Photography

Most of my photographs at the University of Houston’s Bauer College of Business are a work of collaboration. This particular project was no different.

My work for Bauer runs in one of four main ways…web galleries, social media, collateral and/or printed in a magazine. These photographs were instead created to be run mainly as a video for the #IAmBauer campaign.

I’m not exactly sure how all of the initial plans came together. By the time I was involved, I was shown a few sample video clips and asked to photograph Bauer faculty, staff and students for a similar style video. My first though upon seeing the sample was that I needed to attempt to photograph the subject in a Martin Schoeller-esque way…raw and real. In the end, the lighting and facial expressions were the only things actually used to mimic a Martin Schoeller portrait. We instead opted to use a dark backdrop, a less shallow depth of field, a wider crop and a longer zoom. But in essence, I think they had a touch of the same feel to those portraits that I admire so.

I photographed probably 50+ people over the span of a few days to display the diversity that is Bauer…people of all ages, ethnicities, walks of life, religions, and so on.

I was really happy with how the photographs turned out. I think the collaborative process helped make all of our visions for this project come to fruition.

To truly appreciate these photographs though, you need to see the video, the final product, below. Props to my friend Charles Propst, Jr. for his amazing talent in storytelling through filmmaking.

This summer, I took on a new challenge while trying to get more involved with my church (Second Baptist Church Houston). I signed up to be a condo leader on the church’s high school Beach Retreat in Pensacola, FL. I’ve always heard great things about how lives are changed each year at the retreat, so I threw my name in the hat hoping that I too might make a difference in even one kid’s life.

I was pretty nervous going into the trip, because I had never been a chaperone of any kind in the past. But alas, I survived!

The trip there and back was two full days on a bus, with many bus rides in between. We had some sun and rain, and lots and lots of sand. I saw laughter and tears, high-fives and hugs.

The best part of the trip though, was witnessing lives being changed. Over 450 high school students (and a few adults too) made professions of faith and were baptized. It was a beautiful thing to witness!

Being a photographer, I, of course, couldn’t leave home without my camera. So I have quite a nice collection of photos to share from the trip.

Enjoy!

On May 15th, I spent the day providing media coverage for the Greenlight for Girls (g4g) event at Space Center Houston. The event was held to spark interest with girls (ranging from middle school to early high school age) in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) through the international g4g program. On hand to help with the event were scientists, engineers and various volunteers from a local industry site.

Throughout the day, the girls participated in hands-on experiments and heard from a few guest speakers including Greenlight for Girls international project manager Jelena Lucin, U.S. Representative Sheila Jackson Lee and retired NASA astronaut Brian Duffy.

Enjoy these photos from the event.

First impressions count. – The importance of executive portraits

Blogs, Faces, Houstonians

The importance of executive portraits
by Houston commercial photographer – Nicki Evans Photography

First impressions count. What kind of first impression do you make?

There are a lot of elements that play a part in first impressions, and those factors vary from meeting someone in person versus “meeting” them online.

When meeting in person, your appearance plays a part in that first impression, as well as your handshake, eye contact, attentiveness to the conversation and your social skills. On a job interview, for example, those items probably end up playing a stronger role in the meeting than what’s on your resume. Your resume probably landed you the interview, but you can’t pass “Go” or collect 200 dollars without making a good impression at the interview.

In this day of instant access to information via the Internet, the first impression you made on that hiring manager or future client or soon-to-be new co-worker could have been made far before that interview. It could have been made through a quick search on LinkedIn. So what did that first impression say?

Hopefully you’ve had your resume reviewed and you spell-check everything before posting your bio, employment history and list of accomplishments. And to put the cherry on top, you’ve made the investment in an executive portrait by a professional photographer. If so, the first thought when your name pops up on LinkedIn is, “Now, he is someone I’d like to have on my team,” or maybe, “If this person has the same level of professionalism that her profile exudes, I’d love to do business with her.”

I know that looks aren’t everything and you can’t judge a book by its cover, but with just a few seconds and a first glimpse on a LinkedIn profile, you certainly don’t want to risk deterring a future employee or potential client in any way with a sloppy profile photo or no image at all.

If you don’t invest in yourself and your career, why should someone invest in you?

Benefit Concepts, Inc. recently invested in executive portraits with Nicki Evans Photography for their teams across Houston. During a day-long conference at the Norris Conference Center in City Centre, we setup a temporary portrait studio where team members could stop by to have their portrait made…57 in total. In addition to providing head shots that team members could use on their LinkedIn pages, the MyBCITeam.com team pages were updated to include these portraits.

UH Bauer in Action – Fall/Winter issue of Inside Bauer Magazine

Fall/Winter issue of Inside Bauer Magazine
by Houston commercial photographer – Nicki Evans Photography

Just before Christmas, my favorite project at the University of Houston’s Bauer College of Business was finished and released in print form…the latest issue of Inside Bauer Magazine.

With this magazine, and all of the previous ones for which I’ve had the pleasure of contributing images, I had the opportunity to meet a variety of amazing people with incredible stories. My job is capturing those people in their element and/or putting those stories into visuals.

The theme for this issue was “Service in Action.” The people of Bauer, whether new student or tenured professor, all have such hearts for giving. Some donate their time by working at summer camps or tutoring other students, some donate their athletic abilities by cycling cross country or teaching boxing, some donate money to fund scholarships. There’s never a shortage of people lending helping hands to those who are in need.

To read some of these stories and see videos featuring the great people of Bauer, check out the new Inside Bauer Magazine website. There are quite a few photos on the website as well, but for a few of my favorites, enjoy the rest of the blog.

by Houston commercial photographer – Nicki Evans Photography

Even though I’d love to help out each charitable cause that comes my way, it’s just not possible to do so while also running a business and providing quality work for each client. I’ve found the best way for me and my business to give back to the community it to truly give from the heart.

“So let each one give as he purposes in his heart, not grudgingly or of necessity; for God loves a cheerful giver.”
2 Corinthians 9:7

One cause that really speaks to my heart is “Flashes of Hope.” This groups “honors the courage of children with cancer by capturing a moment in time and funding research so they will have the chance to create a lifetime of memories.” About this time last year, I joined ASMP for various professional benefits and found that the local Houston chapter of ASMP is very active with Flashes of Hope (FOH). I applied to be a volunteer photographer and was soon accepted to the MD Anderson chapter. Just a few days before Halloween, I had the opportunity to photograph my first group of kids for this great organization.

I wasn’t sure what to expect going in, but the whole day it felt like I was photographing your average kid from the local elementary or high school. By their big smiles, happy demeanor and wonderful families who laughed along with my corny jokes and goofy faces, you’d never know that these kids were sick.

It made me happy to see all of them in such good spirits. At the same time, it broke my heart to know that these kids were in fact sick. I hope when I return to photograph again at MD Anderson, I’ll hear that all of these kids are well and in remission. After listening to the stories from the other volunteers, I know that won’t necessarily be the case. But at least I know that through the great work Flashes of Hope is doing, more and more cancer research is being funded each day, and the families who participate will go home with beautiful photographs of their children to cherish for a lifetime.

Take a moment and look at these photographs, say a prayer of healing for these kids, and if you have a little extra to give back this Christmas season, consider giving to Flashes of Hope or another cause near and dear to your heart.

Always board. Never bored. Part 2 – Slaying the best of both worlds

Always board. Never bored. Part 2 – Slaying the best of both worlds
by Houston commercial photographer – Nicki Evans Photography

When I began searching for wake boarders to participate in my “Always board. Never bored.” project, Brandon was one of the first riders to respond. After chatting with Brandon a few times, I knew we were cut from the same cloth. We share the same love for water…that deep, unexplainable Moby Dick attraction to H20.

I actually had quite a few responses to my initial search for wake boarders, but finding people was less of a problem than making schedules align on days when the weather was nice. It happened that both fell into place on a Saturday in August when SMG Wake (where Brandon works) was hosting a demo day at the San Bernard River in conjunction with Liquid Rides and the Boomstick.

When I arrived at the party, there were tons of boats and people ready for a good time. I hopped on the new Malibu 25 LSV that SMG was demoing and got to hang out with Brandon and a rotating crew of riders for the afternoon. I made a few shots of some guys wake boarding, and a few of people wake surfing, before I was able to catch a set behind the boat. Such a fun ride (and bonus of photographing wake boarding)!

Then, just a few minutes before sunset, Brandon had a chance to strap on a board and take a set. With no real warmup at all, he was throwing some big hits and tearing up the river. His aggressive style and the soft evening light were the perfect combination for a few great shots! Unfortunately, a storm was rolling in, so it got dark quickly and we had to head in.

Since Brandon is both an avid boat and cable rider, we decided to get together for more photographs at Hangar 9 in Conroe, where he often rides after work. We booked a day in October, and I arrived a couple of hours before Brandon, so I could play on the cable lake awhile. Then it was time to get to work. Well, who am I kidding? Photographing wake boarders is more play than work to me 😉

Since I’d shot with Parker at Hangar 9 a few months back, I wanted to try to get some new angles in my shots. In addition to the detail and straight-forward action shots, I used the towers from the cable to frame Brandon on a few shots, got a ride to the middle of the lake on the coolest barge ever (it had a built-in picnic table) to get closer to a few rails and then tried out my waterproof bag for a few in-water shots. And then, since I’m a sucker for a good sunset, I had to get a few shots as the day came to an end.

Up, up and away – The Great Texas Balloon Race

personal, travel

The Great Texas Balloon Race
by Houston commercial photographer – Nicki Evans Photography

For quite a few years I’ve wanted to attend the Great Texas Balloon Race in Longview, TX. Every year, when it finally shows up on my radar, I realize I already have something planned for that weekend and can’t make it. So last year, as soon as I knew the 2016 dates, I went ahead and put it on my calendar.

As the weekend approached, the weather was a little questionable. But since it was only about a 20-30% chance of rain, my husband and I decided to go ahead and make the trip. We arrive Saturday midday, visited some family, grabbed a Jucys Burger (famous in East Texas) then headed over to the airport early to make sure we had good access to the balloon glow.

The balloon glow was my main reason for wanting to attend this event. I’ve always thought the sight of hot air balloons against a blue sky was beautiful. But to see them all lit up at night…I was like a kid in a candy store, just thinking about the beautiful photos I would make.

As we approached the airport, the sky was starting to cloud up a bit, but the forecast still looked to be in our favor. We parked and began walking in, only to reach the gate and find out the balloon glow had been canceled. Long story, short…we ended up being stuck in a parking lot during a thunderstorm for about an hour, trying to exit the airport with not much luck, and we didn’t get to see the balloon glow.

We were both pretty disappointed but still wanted to make the best of the weekend. We decided to wake up early Sunday morning to watch the actual balloon race, so we could at least see some balloons. I’m not much of an early riser. I rise for wake boarding, vacation and taking photos…that’s it. This early morning turned out to be worth it though, because I was able to experience something new and photograph it too.

It took a few minutes before we began seeing balloons. This was the lone balloon for quite a while. He led the race by quite a large span.nevansphotos_tx_houston_photographer_editorial_commercial_advertising_hot_air_balloon_great_texas_balloon_race_nicki_evans_photography-1_0001nevansphotos_tx_houston_photographer_editorial_commercial_advertising_hot_air_balloon_great_texas_balloon_race_nicki_evans_photography-1_0005
Then, before you knew it, there were about 30 balloons all heading our direction.nevansphotos_tx_houston_photographer_editorial_commercial_advertising_hot_air_balloon_great_texas_balloon_race_nicki_evans_photography-1_0009nevansphotos_tx_houston_photographer_editorial_commercial_advertising_hot_air_balloon_great_texas_balloon_race_nicki_evans_photography-1_0006
As a sidebar to the race, a target drop is held along the “racetrack.” Each balloon pilot tries to drop a marker in a target area for extra prize money. If they are really on track, they can try their hand at tossing a ring onto a pole for even more money. nevansphotos_tx_houston_photographer_editorial_commercial_advertising_hot_air_balloon_great_texas_balloon_race_nicki_evans_photography-1_0014nevansphotos_tx_houston_photographer_editorial_commercial_advertising_hot_air_balloon_great_texas_balloon_race_nicki_evans_photography-1_0012nevansphotos_tx_houston_photographer_editorial_commercial_advertising_hot_air_balloon_great_texas_balloon_race_nicki_evans_photography-1_0017
As I was photographing this balloon, I noticed something wasn’t quite right. Then I heard the crowd start chattering and gasping a bit. The balloon was on fire. In the few seconds where there were actual flames, I was thinking like a photojournalist + getting a little scared that this balloon was going to engulf in flames and fall out of the sky right in front of me + praying that this guy would be okay. Luckily, prayers were answered, and the fire was gone quickly. The pilot made a safe landing a few hundred yards away. It was a bit scary for a few seconds though.nevansphotos_tx_houston_photographer_editorial_commercial_advertising_hot_air_balloon_great_texas_balloon_race_nicki_evans_photography-1_0013
On a happier note, there was a penguin-shaped balloon. Now you’re smiling, right? nevansphotos_tx_houston_photographer_editorial_commercial_advertising_hot_air_balloon_great_texas_balloon_race_nicki_evans_photography-1_0011nevansphotos_tx_houston_photographer_editorial_commercial_advertising_hot_air_balloon_great_texas_balloon_race_nicki_evans_photography-1_0015nevansphotos_tx_houston_photographer_editorial_commercial_advertising_hot_air_balloon_great_texas_balloon_race_nicki_evans_photography-1_0016nevansphotos_tx_houston_photographer_editorial_commercial_advertising_hot_air_balloon_great_texas_balloon_race_nicki_evans_photography-1_0010
Hope you enjoyed my trip to the Great Texas Balloon Race. Maybe I’ll have to add the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta to my travel list next.

Home is where… Part 2 – The oysters are harvested

Home is where…Part 2-The oysters are harvested
by Houston commercial photographer – Nicki Evans Photography

With a large part of Chambers County touching Trinity and/or Galveston Bays, it’s no wonder that so many people who call this county home have jobs related to the water and seafood. So the first installment of “Home is where…” features Jeri’s Seafood.

Jeri’s Seafood, based in Smith Point, began in 1970. Since then, multiple generations of the Nelson family have worked in the business on Galveston Bay harvesting oysters and practicing sustainability of the local reefs.

At Jeri’s Seafood, the day begins around 5:30 a.m., when employees arrive to head out to the reefs or begin shucking and packaging oysters. With little light (no sunlight at all), bucket after bucket of ice is loaded onto the boats that will go out to the reefs in Galveston Bay. During the summer months, trips to the reef are short because of the heat.

NEvansPhotos_Jeris_Seafood_Smith_Point_TX_Chambers_County_Home_is_Where_Oysters_Houston_Photographer_Commercial_Editorial_Advertising_Nicki_Evans_Photography_0002
Close to 6 a.m., when the sky is just beginning to lighten up, the boats leave for the bay.NEvansPhotos_Jeris_Seafood_Smith_Point_TX_Chambers_County_Home_is_Where_Oysters_Houston_Photographer_Commercial_Editorial_Advertising_Nicki_Evans_Photography_0003
About the same time, another crew works on moving bags of oysters between trailers and a giant drive-in freezer.NEvansPhotos_Jeris_Seafood_Smith_Point_TX_Chambers_County_Home_is_Where_Oysters_Houston_Photographer_Commercial_Editorial_Advertising_Nicki_Evans_Photography_0010
Inside, men dressed in hoodies (because it’s cold in there) and rubber boots line counters from one wall to the next shucking piles and piles of oysters. Pop the shell, drop the oyster into a bucket of water and knock the shell into a crate on the floor.NEvansPhotos_Jeris_Seafood_Smith_Point_TX_Chambers_County_Home_is_Where_Oysters_Houston_Photographer_Commercial_Editorial_Advertising_Nicki_Evans_Photography_0006NEvansPhotos_Jeris_Seafood_Smith_Point_TX_Chambers_County_Home_is_Where_Oysters_Houston_Photographer_Commercial_Editorial_Advertising_Nicki_Evans_Photography_0001NEvansPhotos_Jeris_Seafood_Smith_Point_TX_Chambers_County_Home_is_Where_Oysters_Houston_Photographer_Commercial_Editorial_Advertising_Nicki_Evans_Photography_0008NEvansPhotos_Jeris_Seafood_Smith_Point_TX_Chambers_County_Home_is_Where_Oysters_Houston_Photographer_Commercial_Editorial_Advertising_Nicki_Evans_Photography_0007
After about 30-40 minutes of shucking, the crates of empty shells begin to fill up. Two guys begin emptying the crates into the bucket of a forklift, so those shucking oysters never have to stop the process.

NEvansPhotos_Jeris_Seafood_Smith_Point_TX_Chambers_County_Home_is_Where_Oysters_Houston_Photographer_Commercial_Editorial_Advertising_Nicki_Evans_Photography_0011NEvansPhotos_Jeris_Seafood_Smith_Point_TX_Chambers_County_Home_is_Where_Oysters_Houston_Photographer_Commercial_Editorial_Advertising_Nicki_Evans_Photography_0012
After the forklift bucket fills up, the oyster shells are then taken outside, much to the happiness of waiting seagulls, where they are poured into a dump truck. Later these oysters will be returned to the bay to help sustain the reefs. NEvansPhotos_Jeris_Seafood_Smith_Point_TX_Chambers_County_Home_is_Where_Oysters_Houston_Photographer_Commercial_Editorial_Advertising_Nicki_Evans_Photography_0013
Around 6:15 a.m., the first full buckets of raw oysters are being sent to the next point in the assembly line for washing, sorting, weighing and packaging.NEvansPhotos_Jeris_Seafood_Smith_Point_TX_Chambers_County_Home_is_Where_Oysters_Houston_Photographer_Commercial_Editorial_Advertising_Nicki_Evans_Photography_0014NEvansPhotos_Jeris_Seafood_Smith_Point_TX_Chambers_County_Home_is_Where_Oysters_Houston_Photographer_Commercial_Editorial_Advertising_Nicki_Evans_Photography_0015NEvansPhotos_Jeris_Seafood_Smith_Point_TX_Chambers_County_Home_is_Where_Oysters_Houston_Photographer_Commercial_Editorial_Advertising_Nicki_Evans_Photography_0016
Once the oysters are placed into buckets for delivery, they are sealed, placed in boxes and then covered in ice until it’s time to be loaded onto an 18-wheeler. NEvansPhotos_Jeris_Seafood_Smith_Point_TX_Chambers_County_Home_is_Where_Oysters_Houston_Photographer_Commercial_Editorial_Advertising_Nicki_Evans_Photography_0017NEvansPhotos_Jeris_Seafood_Smith_Point_TX_Chambers_County_Home_is_Where_Oysters_Houston_Photographer_Commercial_Editorial_Advertising_Nicki_Evans_Photography_0018
The sun has now been out for about 15 minutes. Some people are probably just leaving for work or maybe even waking up, and the well-oiled machine that is Jeri’s Seafood is already on a roll for the day. NEvansPhotos_Jeris_Seafood_Smith_Point_TX_Chambers_County_Home_is_Where_Oysters_Houston_Photographer_Commercial_Editorial_Advertising_Nicki_Evans_Photography_0019NEvansPhotos_Jeris_Seafood_Smith_Point_TX_Chambers_County_Home_is_Where_Oysters_Houston_Photographer_Commercial_Editorial_Advertising_Nicki_Evans_Photography_0020
Stay tuned for the next installment of “Home is where…” Hopefully there will be a second part to the Jeris’ Seafood blog, when I have a chance to ride out to the reefs.
