TalentHouse Contest for Photograph Chris Cornell a chance to win passes and setlist to Chris Cornell live acoustic, Nov 26 – Atlantic City, NJ – Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa.
SXSW March 12, 2011 – Chris Cornell Powered Down by Nokia – Solo Acoustic Performance at The Belmont in Austin, TX. (http://sxsw.com/node/6955)
This photo was taken during the first days of SXSW my hometown of Austin, Texas. I was sitting in a movie theater about to watch the premier of a new film when a friend called and told me that Chris Cornell was playing an acoustic show down the street at The Belmont. Of course, I quickly left and headed straight for the show. We got in line and quickly made it up front to see Chris Cornell play live in all his glory. I snapped a few photos, here is one of the better ones.
Thank you for your consideration,
Matthew Comer
Such Good Photography

Hello Fabrice and everybody at TalentHouse,
I am so excited about winning this contest!! So so excited and really couldn’t believe it when reading this email and online announcement.
As excited, overwhelmed, appreciative, and honored I am for wining this contest to the Chris Cornell show Atlantic City, New Jersey on Saturday, November 26th; unfortunately I will be unable to represent TalentHouse and Such Good Photography at this event.
Shortly after my submission, I was informed by my employer of over 8 years that due to cost cutting measures I would be required to take off 5 mandatory unpaid days off between now and Dec 3. This combined with 2 unpaid holiday days off for Thanksgiving would put my family into a bind by additionally taking care of my own travel and accommodations from Austin to New Jersey.
Hopefully, the runner up will be as excited as me to have been bestowed this honor and would be more easily able attend the show and document this show with beautiful photography of the talented Chris Cornell. I hope that this can happen so that somebody else may enjoy this incredible opportunity.
Matthew Comer

About admin

I live in Austin the capital of Texas and the self proclaimed “Music Capital of the World” with my lovely wife Jenny and our two beautiful children: our son Garrett, and our daughter Grace. We enjoy being together as a family and with other family in the area. We like to try new food and go to our favorite restaurants. We enjoy travel and try to go to an exciting new place every year, as well as visiting existing favorite locations. I also enjoy pursuing passions such as photography. My wife and I love music and listen to Austin musicians and touring bands as much as we are able to now with the little ones. Volunteer work for SXSW and Old Settlers Music Festival. I operate a consulting business, doing freelance business as Matthew Comer and syphonsoft Web Hosting. I have several projects and long-term clients. I perform consulting to the State of Texas as a Catalog Information Systems Vendor (CISV) and can be found on the Centralized Master Bidders List (CMBL) Vendor ID: 1205325509200. I am a business man and aspiring entrepreneur at heart. I operate several small businesses, Freeman Properties Property Management Company as well as other businesses listed on this site. I am currently employed as a contractor with Titan Solutions providing consulting for IBM. I work on a great team in the PartnerWorld Business Partner portal as a part of the IBM Global Technology Services (GTS) with the IBM Global Channel Enablement (CE) division. I started my seventh consecutive year-long contract in December of 2010. I am doing some amazing work on this team. I had built a system in which editors on the team can create and maintain HTML pages using an XML/XSL integrated WebSphere system. This allows the users to create pages much more easily. I enjoy the work, this is the best work of my career. This system is being sunset and we are migrating our systems to various internal CMS systems.

If you are an employer or headhunter and know of a great working remotely employment opportunity that may be a really good fit that closely matches my skill-set, then please view my résumé. However, know that I am not actively looking for new employment, nor would I likely accept other employment at this time. If you are interested in hiring me as an independent consultant, contractor, web developer/designer to develop your website; or to redevelop and rethink your website, as my specialty is redeveloping and maintaining existing sites, then please contact me.
