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 […]

May the Schwartz Be With You

May the Schwartz Be With You

Winners, losers, snakes and a fire pretty much sum up my May. Here are a few of my favorites from the fifth month of 2014. Enjoy!

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 […]

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 […]

Equal and opposite reaction

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

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 […]
