2013 Photos of the Year

2013 Photos of the Year

I’m a little late to the annual “posting of my favorite photos of the year” party, but I have a good reason. I wanted to wait until the year was actually over. It bugs me when websites post their POY galleries in early December. That’d be like showing the plays of the game after the […]

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 […]

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. […]

Punk Rock and Ear Plugs

Punk Rock and Ear Plugs

Thousands of punk rock fans from around the world and 400+ bands invaded Gainesville last weekend for Fest 12. It’s four days of concerts in multiple venues throughout town… and it’s pretty darn awesome. I had the assignment to cover whatever I could find during the weekend. From the main stages where the bigger bands […]

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 […]

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 […]

Football's Back

Football’s Back

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 […]

Just one light

Just one light

Portraits have always been my weak point when it comes to newspaper photography. Give me an hour at an event and I’ll bring back some nice images. Give me some lights and a subject and I freeze up. Rob, my boss, noticed this right away after I started working in Gainesville and has been helping […]

Summer of Mud

Summer of Mud

With school starting around here this week, I figured I’d post a “what I did this summer” essay. Summers around this college town can get pretty slow. With all the students gone, not much happens around here so it gives us time to find and work on projects. I’d seen signs and a few other […]

A Dancing Horse and Fireworks

A Dancing Horse and Fireworks

Since I graduated high school,  I think there’s only been 2-3 Fourth of July weekends I haven’t worked. And that’s not a complaint. The festivals and events surrounding the 4th are usually a pretty good time. Rain was the theme this year. It threatened, delayed or pushed forward every event…  From shopping for fireworks, to […]
