Basketball for Dragsters

Basketball for Dragsters

I shot a different kind of March Madness this past weekend. With Florida basketball not being all that great this season, I didn’t follow the team to the SEC Tournament in Nashville. Instead I got to shoot the NHRA Gatornationals for the first time. In 2003 as an intern in Topeka, I shot the NHRA event […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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

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 […]

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

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 […]

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 […]
