Meat Pies and Sunsets

Last month, Laura and I took a road trip back to New Orleans. It was a long weekend so I could photograph a friend’s wedding, but we found some time get down to Terrebonne and see our old stomping grounds. I’m almost done with the wedding photos, but took a quick break to work up […]

March Basketball Part 5: Final Four, North Texas

March Basketball Part 5: Final Four, North Texas

Shooting the Final Four has been on the top of my sporting events to attend bucket list for years. I grew up a basketball fan and watched the tournament each year. I even took vacation days on Thursday and Friday one year just to watch the first rounds. The Final Four is on a whole […]

March Basketball Part 4: Sweet 16 and Elite 8, Memphis

March Basketball Part 4: Sweet 16 and Elite 8, Memphis

Next up, the Gators flew to Memphis for their fourth straight trip to the Sweet 16 and Elite Eight. They faced off against UCLA then Dayton to finally reach the Final Four. Dayton, by the way, won my award for best fans and band. They filled the FedEx Forum for both games and easily made […]

March Basketball Part 3: NCAA rounds 2 & 3, Orlando

March Basketball Part 3: NCAA rounds 2 & 3, Orlando

After a few days off, Joel (online stud) and I drove down to Orlando for the second and third rounds. (Lets be honest, they’re the first and second rounds still) The routine of covering the NCAA Tournament is pretty set in stone. For example, a site that has games on Thursday and Saturday goes pretty […]

March Basketball Part 2: SEC Tournament, Atlanta

March Basketball Part 2: SEC Tournament, Atlanta

The Gators were presented the SEC Regular season champion trophy before their first game against Mizzou. And I agree with Billy Donovan, it’s weird to present a team a championship trophy before a game, but whatever, it made for fun photos in the locker room after their first round win. Florida made fairly easy work […]

March Basketball Part 1: Senior Night

March Basketball Part 1: Senior Night

I just photographed a guy who likes to rap on the corner of the street here in Gainesville. He kept saying “Let’s get this party started!” So that’s stuck in my head as the only phrase to start this series of posts about March basketball. Let’s Get this Party Started! The Florida Gators had quite […]

A sweet set of photos

A sweet set of photos

I’m pretty sure it’s required to make a sweet reference when posting photos from the Sweet 16. I have plenty of basketball photos to show off, but thought I’d save those until after the tournament. So for now, you’re getting the random fun shots from the first couple of days in Memphis. Everything from our […]

Zach Hodskins

Zach Hodskins

This kid’s a stud. Zach was born without his left forearm but has developed into one heck of a basketball player. Florida’s coaching staff saw him play during some summer leagues and offered him a preferred walk-on spot next season at UF. So he won’t have a scholarship, but will suit up and practice with […]

Equal and opposite reaction

The plan was simple, Florida beats Auburn to win a school-record 18th straight game, I get a good photo of the players celebrating, we put that photo on the front page. Pretty common plan for newspapers. On paper, Florida should smoke Auburn by 27 points. And blowouts usually don’t produce good celebration photos. Good thing […]

Stop Cat Juggling

Good Lord, I’ve heard about this. Cat Juggling! I’ll be taking donations to my PayPal account to stop this horrible tradition. January got off to a pretty good start as far as my photos are concerned. I didn’t post anything from individual assignments so I figured I’d just do a best of January thing and […]
