Dallas Elite

Dallas Elite

Friday might have been the most exciting and exhausting day of shooting basketball yet this season. What looked like a comfortable win for KU, turned into the first overtime game of the tournament and a thrilling win for Michigan. I decided to shoot that game (it was before the Florida game) to have some photos […]

Setting a Screen

Setting a Screen

I’m back in Texas for the second weekend in a row. This time to shoot Florida’s Sweet 16 game against everyone’s favorite team left in the tournament, Florida Gulf Coast. When I walked into Cowboys Stadium, I saw the screen and thought “Uh, that’s not so big. I don’t see what all the hype’s about.” […]

Some kind of Madness

Some kind of Madness

Here’s a few shots from the second (first) round of basketball from Austin. Florida won big to advance to the third (second) round and will play Minnesota. I was finally able to set up a remote floor camera. Didn’t get one usable shot… except for when Albert came and hammed it up right in front […]

I landed in Austin (after a 2.5 hour direct flight from Orlando with TV’s showing NCAA games… best flight ever) and came right to the arena to shoot Florida’s practice. They take on Northwestern State Friday in the second round of the NCAA Tournament.  Practices are usually pretty boring. I thought seeing the pep band […]

The Rebel Yell

The Rebel Yell

Tough loss for the Gators today. They lost by three to Ole Miss after having a double digit lead in the second half. A couple of questionable calls against Florida put the stud for Ole Miss on the line shooting three free throws. He made all six. A look back through my photos shows he […]

A chicken named Lew

A chicken named Lew

I’d seen this chicken before at other games, but finally got around to asking about it. Turns out the Florida drummers take “Lew” with them to all the away football and basketball games for at least 10 years. Awesome. So I made sure to take their photos today during the game. And what a game…. […]

Sweet Georgia Brown

Since I was a kid, I’ve always loved to watch a Harlem Globetrotters show. I’m more impressed with their huge dunks now than I am with their silly jokes, but they combine for a couple hours of great entertainment. And I’ll admit, I have a set of red, white and blue Globetrotter wrist bands. Love […]

Stars, Science and Oreo's

Stars, Science and Oreo’s

Today I shot a simple, fun assignment at a local elementary school. Students and their parents spent the evening playing science-themed games, making star maps and, my favorite, using Oreo cookies to learn the phases of the moon. After the sun went down, they went out into the back yard of the school to read […]

It’s pretty standard for a newspaper photog to get called to go make a weather photo. This morning I got the text from my boss saying that we needed some rainy day photos. Finding rainy day photos in a town with a college campus is like shooting fish in a barrel. It’s a simple formula… […]

I had been following a guy on a motorcycle for a few miles while on my way into work. Nothing new. Until I pulled up next to him at a red light and saw his two best friends sitting in his lap. How awesome is that?!? So I followed him until he stopped at a […]
