Autumn on The Pedernales RiverEric Pohl | November 15, 2013
It's mid-November in Central Texas. The banks of the Pedernales River are exploding in a fiery display of oranges, yellows and reds. The stars of this brilliant display are the rust-colored bows of the ubiquitous bald cypress trees. From the way the sun shimmers through their foliage to the way light falls around the cypress knees and twisted roots — There is something magical about these sentinals of Hill Country river banks. The changing foliage along with cooler tempratures herald our bittersweet passage into autumn in Texas.
Cover of Here is HoustonEric Pohl | November 11, 2013
Even though I recently moved to Austin, I love any chance to represent my hometown of Houston. The current Here is Houston fall cover features a twilight shot of an art installation at Discovery Green in downtown Houston. Thank you to the Greater Houston Partnership and Texas Monthly Custom Publishing for the opportunity.

Zipline Lake TravisEric Pohl | November 09, 2013
My wife and I celebrated our 1-year wedding anniversary today with a zipline adventure over Lake Travis. What better way to commemorate saying "I do" then soaring through the air suspended only by a steel cable?!?
Ziplining was a first for us both and I have to say, it was incredible. We zipped on 5 different lines ranging from a "bunny slope" line at 250 feet to the longest zipline in Texas at over half a mile long. We hiked up typical Central Texas topography with steep rocky trails to get to each point. So we got fresh air, a great Hill Country hike with commanding 180 degree views and the rush of flying — all in an afternoon. Our guides were amazing. All we had to do it show up at each location with our group dawning our helmets and harnesses, then get clipped on and zipped away. The finale was a dual-line jaunt across the lake at a dizzying height above the water and surrounding canyon. We got to race a partner on the last line, for me that was my wife. What an amazing day!

3rd Bar Oyster & Eating HouseEric Pohl | October 23, 2013
From nationally-acclaimed chef Bryan Caswell, 3rd Bar Oyster & Eating House is one of the newest and most eye-catching dining venues in Bush Intercontinental Airport. Located in Terminal B, it's not your typical airport consession.
Architectural and Commercial Photos at IAHEric Pohl | October 22, 2013
Last week we shot storefront exteriors and interiors in the new Terminal B and updated Terminal E at Bush Intercontinental Airport. Westfield Consession Management, a global property management firm, regulary commissions us to showcase concepts in their retail and dining portfolio.
Shooting at airports is always interesting and always challenging. It's a vibrant and dynamic shooting environment where we don't control the stage. We typically try to schedule shooting during off-peak airport times, but we happily adapt to the needs and schedule of the client.
Photography at the Galveston Pleasure Pier
Eric Pohl | October 09, 2013
A few months back I had the "pleasure" of shooting at the Galveston Pleasure Pier, one of the island's newest and most popular attractions. The salty gulf breeze and postcard ocean views set the scene for amusement rides, midway games and classic theme park cuisine like funnel cakes. Yum. Opened in 2012 by Landry's Inc., the pier harkens back to the original Galveston Pleasure Pier of the 1940's, which shut down after hurricane damage in 1961.
A big thank you to Landry's and their PR firm for granting me access to shoot editorial work on site. The crystal blue skies made for great contrast against the reds, oranges and yellows on the pier. Thankfully my tripod was allowed in, after only a few minutes of it being vetted by security.

Architectural Photography for Alamo DrafthouseEric Pohl | October 04, 2013
Alamo Drafthouse commissioned me to shoot exterior and interior architectural shots for their Vintage Park Houston location. Security was nice enough to allow us roof access for scouting and shooting both in the morning, afternoon and twilight. You can see the shots on their website, as well as Groupon and other sites.
