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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Jayhawks in Florida

Jayhawks in Florida

During a grade school History of Kansas lesson, my teacher said “If you were born in Kansas, you’re a Jayhawk.” I said “No I’m not, I’m a Wildcat.” She was referring of course to the mythical Jayhawk creature thing as a state of Kansas figure, not necessarily KU’s mascot. I didn’t care, I was NOT […]

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 […]
