2018 National Championship

2018 National Championship

It started with watching Alabama arrive in Atlanta and ended with having breakfast with the game’s hero. Another fun weekend covering the National Championship for the College Football Playoffs has come and gone. A lot of what I shot had nothing to do with football. I spent quite a bit of time with the Extra […]

A new kind of trifecta

A new kind of trifecta

(Stay tuned for a “do you see it like this?” kind of photo) Back in the day I used to have what I’d call the trifecta weekend. I’d shoot a high school game on Friday. College game on Saturday, then a pro game on Sunday. I don’t cover the NFL any more so this is […]

2 chances to use 3 cameras on 1 play

2 chances to use 3 cameras on 1 play

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 […]

Who needs the red zone?

Who needs the red zone?

First of all, I hate the phrase “Take State.”  If you have a team in the state tournament in any sport or competition, never use that phrase. Just had to get that out. Now then, I just wrapped up shooting the 1A state championship game between Trenton and Blountstown at the Citrus Bowl in Orlando. […]

Crashing a tailgate

Crashing a tailgate

I’ve photographed a TON of tailgating before football games… at all levels. So much so that it’s almost becoming a chore. Until I slap myself and say “come on, I’m outside shooting people having a good time.” But this season, I made a rule. No photographs of people playing corn hole, beer pong or flip […]

Bluegrass and Buckeyes

Bluegrass and Buckeyes

Laura and I headed north last weekend to cover the Florida versus Kentucky game in Lexington. It worked out well since Laura’s folks live two hours from Lexington so we crashed at “Hotel Bernheim” for a few days. (Thanks John and Carol!) We got to Dayton around 10 a.m. and drove to Young’s Jersey Dairy […]

First Fall weekend of Football

First Fall weekend of Football

I guess technically it’s Fall, but it feels nothing like Fall around here. Ether way, it was still a good weekend of football in North Central Florida. Call me crazy, but I REALLY enjoy driving an hour to a small-town high school and shooting a football game. Maybe even more so than shooting at large […]

South and VERY south Florida

South and VERY south Florida

This post will be mostly about the photos… but here’s a quick rundown of my Sept. 6-10. Shoot the Florida vs Miami football game at Sun Life Stadium. (My last trip there was for Super Bowl XLIV) Miami fans can really tailgate. The game didn’t go Florida’s way, but who cares. It was cloudy all […]

First of all, I’ve decided to no longer recognize the bison as a member of the animal kingdom. As far as I’m concerned, bison never got on the Ark and no longer exist. (Kidding of course. Congrats to North Dakota State for beating K-State on Saturday the same way K-State beat everybody last season.) That […]
