Old times there are not forgotten

Old times there are not forgotten

Last week marked the 150th anniversary of the famous Civil War campaign, The Battle of Gainesville. What? Never heard of it?  Well, it happened and some historians say it was pretty darn important (others call it a skirmish.) Small battles like this one helped the South keep supply (food) lines open after Union troops captured […]

The Annual Gathering of Yerds

Summer is workshop season for those in the journalism education world. And last week I hung out at the Yearbook Connection’s annual summer camp. It’s a three-day gathering of high school yearbook staffs from around Florida. They decide on a theme, plan coverage, learn some tricks of the trade and get to know each other […]

Tennessee Flying Fish and Jet Skiing Grandmas

Tennessee Flying Fish and Jet Skiing Grandmas

Last week I was lucky enough to join the Bernheim family in Tennessee for their family vacation. Seven days of board games, movies, card games, sleeping in, boat rides, homemade meals, corn hole and ladder golf tournament, celebrating summer birthdays, power outages, being out of breath walking to and from the dock, trying like crazy […]

Scallops

Scallops

I could try to tell you  how to go fishing for scallops, but I’ll let a dude named Shel explain. I mean, come on, his name’s Shel for crying out loud. After the video, check out the rest of the photos from my trip out to the Gulf of Mexico on the opening day of […]

Weekend in Washington

Weekend in Washington

Lets start with the photo that sent me to DC. I shot this on the Saturday of Fest, a 3-day punk rock festival in Gainesville. That morning, a group of guys took part in a scavenger hunt bike race around town. At each stop they received a clue to where to ride next. But part […]

Lots of Pomp and Circumstance

Lots of Pomp and Circumstance

Quick tip for those who don’t work for a small newspaper that covers high schools… unless you want angry emails and phone calls from parents, what you do for one school, you must do for all the schools. Good luck trying to cover one school’s homecoming but not another. Or one school’s prom, but not […]

A good Friday in the 504

A good Friday in the 504

Back in July 2013  my buddy Jeremy sent me an email asking if I’d like to shoot his April 2014 wedding. To a daily newspaper photographer, that’s forever way. Heck, that’s an entire college football AND basketball season. But I didn’t hesitate to say yes. Here’s my thought process… The Parker Family, in New Orleans, […]

Too Early for Flapjacks?

Too Early for Flapjacks?

The last two weekends have been pretty jam packed with activities. These photos really don’t cover all the fun we’ve had, but it’ll give you a glimpse at least. Pancake (DeLeon) Springs where you can make your own pancakes at the table. Amazing concept and tons of fun. Morning walk along the LaChua Trail, only […]

Red Devils own JetBlue

Red Devils own JetBlue

If I’m going to drive four hours down to Ft. Myers to shoot one baseball game, it better be worth it. And it was. Great light to start the game, and the home team came out on top. In two games at JetBlue park, the Williston Red Devils didn’t allow a run. Not to shabby. JetBlue is […]
