About Skip Hunt

'I make images... so that all my moments will not be lost in time like tears in rain.' ~ Skip Hunt

Skip Hunt, born on the wind-swept plains of Oklahoma, is a professional photographer in Austin, Texas. He picked up a 35mm camera in the mid-1970's and has never stopped sharing his unique vision via photographic images. Many moons ago, he was bitten hard by the wanderlust beast and has been canvassing the globe ever since. Visionary artists such as Pete Turner, David Lynch, Cindy Sherman, and Andre Kertesz set Skip's sight on a fine-art horizon early on. His insatiable thirst for rich color and even richer cultural exploration keeps him on the road most of the time. When he's recharging his batteries, he calls Austin, Texas home.

Heading Back to Mexico

June 24th, 2011

Heading to Mexico in a couple of days. Not going on the motorcycle this time, but flying to the furthest airport from Austin, and then wandering my way back up North in which way I can. Most likely by bus. I'm excited to be heading back to the Yucata... 

In Jan/Feb of 2011, I traveled in Mexico for a month. Each place I went I made a short stop-motion video clip with an iPhone 4. This video virtually compresses the whole month-long journey down to about 5 minutes. Check out more of Skip's Mexcio ...

Well, it’s official! I’m proud to announce that soon, I will be able to say my work is hanging in the Smithsonian Castle on the National Mall in Washington D.C. This image was selected to hang in the “Editors’ Picks: The Best of Smithsonian Magazi...

Austin 2 Albuquerque

June 21st, 2010

Made it from Austin to Albuquerque via the Lincoln National Forest, etc. on a motorcycle. Here's an excerpt: Or, it could be times have changed and life’s just a bit more raw around the edges these days. I think I’ll try to concentrate and se... 

dharamsala RED

June 13th, 2010

Sitting in a small Tibetan cafe in Dharamsala, India (home of the Dalai Lama's government in exhile), I chatted up with a young Tibetan monk over chai. He asked, "How do you know what to take a photo of, and what not?.. How do you know when there is ... 

John and Yoko 2000

June 11th, 2010

At last a rusty 3rd class Bluebird bus arrived in a cloud of fine dry dust. Not too many passengers except a dusty dred-coiffed couple. The young fella looked as if he might be Mexican, but his companion was Japanese. I generally avoid these types be... 

Plaza Shine

June 11th, 2010

Like a swift subway blast of subterranean wind, I was carried around the corner. Into the plaza I wandered and tried to get a grip on what might have happened. After a brief dizzy sensation that I'd blamed on the hot afternoon vapors, it was as if I'...

Away

June 11th, 2010

When the vino has lost its taste... When, the rage as dissolved into apathy... When everyone wears the same mask... When you can no longer see the dying flicker of pinpoint light at the end... When the temple has beome just another stone-c... 

Like Butter

June 11th, 2010

All I knew was that the place felt like home. Mystically alien, but with a warmth I knew not from this world. The gentle light, the whispering mountaintops, the rustling of prayer flags.... I was in a enrapt with every detail and fragrance.... I only... 

Decasia

June 9th, 2010

I was just re-watching the film called "Decasia" again this evening and realized how much the beauty of decay as influenced me. Perhaps not so much the decay itself, but more that acceptance that EVERYTHING as well as ourselves is in a state of decay... 

Skip Hunt Particles RECEPTION

November 24th, 2009

This show was up at Thunderbird Cafe in a different form. This time the display has changed into more of an "installation" using thin wooden dowels and tiny wooden clothespins. "For this show I wanted to play around a bit and experiment with abstr... 

Making a Family Home

November 23rd, 2009

Here's a few of my favs from a recent shoot for Shannon Honeybloom's "Making a Family Home" book. It's a very interesting study that's sort of like Deepak Chopra meets Martha Stewart. It's out now and you can be ordered HERE Also, check ... 

Hey there, My new book is hot off the presses at Blurb! Take a sneak peek and place your order if you're so inclined... It took me awhile, but I finally put together a book of my Skip Hunt Vagabond :: MEXICO 2009 Trip! Cost is a bit steep on... 

New Interview Pt. 2

June 16th, 2009

Hi, Just discovered Home Workshop added a part 2 to my previous interview. If interested, you can read it HERE! :-) 

Buzzing along in 117F Baja temps and in a road trance heading into the darkest storm clouds you've even seen... listening to Hank Williams Sr. on your headphones and floating along the scorching blacktop... wondering why THIS isn't the music they pla... 

Xilitla Miro

June 11th, 2009

So, I'd hobbled my way down this endless cobbled road... just kept going until I ran out of cobblestones, then kept right on going into the dripping balm jungle... downward still through the forest and wiping away sweat beads forming constantly and r... 

Mirror Man

June 10th, 2009

I really didn't feel up to going to the flea market that day... It wasn't just the record-breaking heat, or the sweltering balm.. but that the light was glaring and oppressive in the way it washed out all the texture, color, and life. Still... out... 

Heavens Gate

June 9th, 2009

Deceived by heaven’s promise… I drifted up and away into the thin delicate seduction… Slipping sweetly into nirvana… melting within her tender embrace… tasting the forbidden light. One last dimension to pass… and then joyful oblivion. Until... 

Varanasi Symphony

June 8th, 2009

Difficult to describe the fragrance of the burning faithful... once a life... now a sinuous stream floating delicate above mother Ganga. The sandlewood dreams of a lifetime... Perfume for the living as we breath-in the misty remembrance of a preci... 

Hey, Getting ready to take off for Mexico again. New places... and some old. Am going to do things a bit different this time, ie. maybe work on a little POD book while I'm actually on the trip, etc. I've created a special travel blog I'l... 

He Cometh

June 5th, 2009

Mama look! He comes now! Wondering what the nature of the the “Big Daddy” might take, Beatrice wandered about the sandy oasis and closed her innocent eyes for a moment. She tasted the saline air, and felt the breeze tickle gently as her sun dress... 

Release

June 4th, 2009

Drowning in a river of white noise and feeling my very self crushed by the monstrocities of stone. I disappear into the veneer of my illusory shell and trudge along, looking for hints that one day the mystery might be revealed. Then... I sense ... 

Devotion

June 3rd, 2009

Clutching one another, they endured the chilly desert night.. passion's noonday fire... thrashing demon wind... Their devotion was tested as all will know... They'll now bask in brother Sol's warm cradle and dance in sister Luna's loving glow..... 

Tussling Terrain

June 2nd, 2009

Fuchsia finally had a moment to herself away from the other inhabitants. She knew she could grow to love this strange and watery outpost… Abundance knew she would just die as soon as he could show her how the indigenous emulants walked on their p... 

Free-Range

June 1st, 2009

Red had worked the edge sector for some time. He wondered if the slightest vibrations of passing vehicular monstrosities might in fact be the key, and he soon deduced that eventually he might just rattle himself free from the blackened industrial aby... 

Slow Day

May 27th, 2009

My only desire was to stroll along the ghats to soak up the sound, textures and light... I wasn't up for a massage... I wasn't shopping for a sari... nor did I need anymore silver charm anklets... Just wanted to "be" as they say... But, ALL of those ... 

Shepherd

May 26th, 2009

She shivered and gasped as he held her close... "I'm here. Don't be afraid..." Her damp chilly frame fought for final moments. Just one more... He pulled her delicate and closer to share his warmth as she shriveled in her final moments. "My lov... 

Paradise Lost

May 23rd, 2009

The concession stand is now closed... And with it, the thin veneer of playtime innocence. Long for the cotton candy days... spun from sticky blue skys and icecream bunny clouds. Pandemonium's boorish box has taken the last vestiges of deception a... 

Past Perfect Porto

May 20th, 2009

Winding slowly through the misty vineyards of Northern Portugal I watch my immediate tear-stained past reform into melancholy memory... The softening time passages dissolve into rich rustic regret... I know not where I go, but glare into the f... 

Buddhas Smile

May 19th, 2009

I'd taken several shots of this little fella in Darjeeling, India. It was a bit strange because I'd been told photos were prohibitted and yet this little group of young monks allowed me to take any photo I wished and even let me into the forbidden La... 

Waiting for Anitgua

May 18th, 2009

Ruined, I wait for redemption… Crumbled, holding tight as it had always been… Shattered, to realize as it had been, and can be no more… Seeing the past as the present… Tangible as grasping a mystic reflection. With all your ALL, you only make ripp... 

Forest de Compostella

May 17th, 2009

For such a popular Catholic pilgrimage site, there's something very odd about Santiago's nearby dim forest. If you can't feel it, you're almost certainly no longer among the living. Deep emerald shadows with knarled black fingers intertwined and shie... 

Jaisalmer Refuge

May 15th, 2009

My driver had advised I not tell anyone I was American. The U.S. was about to begin bombing Afghanistan, and the Rajasthani city was only 50 clicks from the Pakastani border and had a large Muslim community. Mr. Balbir, pleaded with me…”The Ambassado... 

Perfume River

May 14th, 2009

I snapped this on an trip out of Ha Noi, Viet Nam to Ha Long bay. If you’re ever in Ha Noi, I HIGHLY recommend seeing Ha Long Bay. It’s very surreal and full of large white limestone islands jutting out of turquoise water… but I digress…. Along the w... 

Shamans Brew

May 11th, 2009

Although a dozen copas of Mate de Coca got me through severe headache and malaise, the Peruvian altitude had nearly sucked the life out of me and I decided the Amazonian steam might better suite my constitution. I'd read of William Burrough's Ayah... 

Artista de Orizaba

April 16th, 2009

This was taken in Orizaba, Mexico... of a simple painter who paints the side of this building with abstract colors... then just stands by it each day. When I asked him permission to photograph him and his art, he seemed quite surprised and honored...

Road Trip 3

August 6th, 2008

Can't swing another long trip at the moment, so I headed out to N.E. Texas with my new Nikon d300 to try and learn and to see what sort of place is called "Uncertain, Texas". Went with Mike, a friend of mine. He endured one of my Mexican trips with m...

Road Trip Back Again

Hey everybody! I'm back from Uncertain, Texas.. HOOOOT and TONS of mosquitos... lost a little money in Shreveport, Louisiana casinos.... toured some of Louisiana, and back into Texas stopping and camping along the way and shooting fresh images. Gr... 

Road Trip

July 27th, 2008

Dang it! When I think of all the time I spend online lately... gotta kick my ass out the door. I can't really take a long trip right now because I'm involved in a small product launch and don't want it to proceed too much further without me. So, I've... 

Numero Uno

July 22nd, 2008

Here's my first entry. "Is this thing on?" Have a show up and getting ready for another one in September... though I have no idea what I'm going to do. Probably a best of collection from my last Mexican motorcycle trip. Man, I wish I could get ba...
