Newton's Third Law

Newton’s Third Law

We all know it. You should have learned all about it in your high school science class. But I’m going to give this famous law a photography twist. No surprise, but sports assignments filled my February. But as I looked through everything I shot, I noticed lots of images of athletes, coaches or fans reacting […]

Time (Lapse) for an Update

I figured it was about time to throw something up here. So here’s a few of my favorites from the first month of 2015. Sports dominated most of what I photographed in January. The month ended with me spending a lot more time in the O’Connell Center than I ever though I would. I worked […]

2014 Year in Photos

2014 Year in Photos

I always find it kind of silly when websites post their top photos or stories of the year in December. They cut out one month of photos. So that’s why I’m posting my photos of the year now. That, and I’m finally getting around to doing it. I did an awful job of editing them […]

Holidays with a 50 and Family

Holidays with a 50 and Family

It had been a few years since I’ve been able to make it home for Christmas. I’ve made a couple Thanksgivings and spent one Christmas in Ohio. So it was great to spend a week in Manhattan over the holidays with friends and family. Since this trip wasn’t work related, I traveled light when it […]

Basketball in a Ballroom

Basketball in a Ballroom

So the trip to the Bahamas wasn’t all water slides and beaches. The Gators played three games in three days at the Atlantis resort. It was a stacked field of teams including North Carolina, Georgetown, Wisconsin, Butler, UAB, Oklahoma and UCLA. Each team would play three games, win or lose. The Gators finished 1-2 good […]

A few months ago my boss called me and said the newspaper decided to send me to the Bahamas to cover the Florida basketball team in a pre-season tournament. Ok, I guess I’ll take that assignment. I mean, if someone has to go, I’ll step up and take one for the team. So the week […]

Sophomore year at FEST

Sophomore year at FEST

For the second year in a row, I traded football for punk rock. Easy decision in my book considering how much football I photograph already. So to give up the pigskin for one weekend of live music and mosh pits was a no-brainer. Fest is a 3-day event that brings bands and punk rock fans […]

Good Ole Rocky Top

Good Ole Rocky Top

First thing’s first, if you don’t know about the Tennessee tradition of playing “Rocky Top,” watch this. I lost count before the game started how many times I heard this song. Now then, onto the photos. I spent the first weekend of October up in the Smoky Mountains to photograph the Florida vs Tennessee game […]

Big plays have been few and far between for the Florida Gators the last couple of years. The offense has been pretty vanilla A.T. (After Tebow). It was the defense that gave UF an 11-win season in 2012, not the offense. So getting photos of long passes, exciting runs or anything like that didn’t happen […]

Football Weather

Ok, you’ve seen a photo. Now go find somewhere dry to wait. I’ll let you know when it’s safe to come back to this blog and resume looking at photos. Normally the start of football season means cooler temperatures and long sleeves. Not in Florida. Early season football games down here mean random thunderstorms, heavy […]
