The things I shoot...

I primarily shoot sports - school and club.  For many years it was just soccer and cyclocross, but then I branched out adding lacrosse, football, baseball, and the occasional road race or triathlon to the mix.  For fall-2021, I began shooting all of the  sports teams at Green Level High School.  I added golf, tennis, cheer, dance, gymnastics, and volleyball (a 4A State Champion volleyball team to be exact).   

The links below are small highlight galleries for the game or event. I'll also usually stick the most recent games in the navigation bar at the side.  If you're interested  in seeing the full, 100+ image, galleries, or want to purchase  images, follow the link in the gallery, or simply navigate straight to my SmugMugstore using the link on the right.

The High School 2022-Spring season is launching!  The 2021 fall and winter sports were a busy run for me.  I had a ton of fun shooting, and learning to shoot, a host of new sports.  Now we're into spring season and I'm looking forward to at least a little bit of familiarity, as I've now shot nearly all of the sports at least once.  I look forward to "less learning curve" and a chance at a little more creativity. 

Nope.  Still haven't changed that picture on the right... I still don't shoot me, shooting pictures.

Shoot me an email if you'd like to get a hold of me, or are interested in having me shoot  a game. There's a "contact" button to the right.

Green Level Gators - 4A NCHSAA Volleyball Champions 2021

It was my privilege to be able to cover the Gator volleyball team this fall as they made what was a historic run to become Green Level High School’s first state championship team. Understand that Green Level is so new, they don’t have any alumni.  They won’t graduate their first senior class until the spring of 2022.  The seniors on this team all started their high school volleyball careers at other schools.  For a school that is barely three years old, to win a championship is remarkable. 

I was thoroughly impressed with the effort, drive, and camaraderie this team showed all season, from when I first met them in August, until they hoisted the trophy in November.  Thanks for taking me along and giving me the opportunity to capture your achievement ladies.  Here’s my photographic tribute to the journey.

Cyclocross...


Grand Circle Trailfest : Sept 30 - Oct 2, 2021

Random highlight gallery/race-day shots (from days one and two anyway).
I went out to Utah with my wonderful wife Wendy, who was doing the 3-day "Trailfest" in southern Utah and northern Arizona.  I took a camera because... well, I usually take a camera... I took a camera because I thought I'd shoot some desert landscapes, maybe some non-light polluted stars, and a few random race shots of Wendy and other friends that we knew were racing.  I didn't intend on shooting the race.  But it was a great event, held on great courses, with wonderfully positive people, managed by a very capable staff.  So I really couldn't help myself.  I hiked parts of the course, and shot portions of the race(s).  Along that line, I wasn't there "working for" the race, so these aren't searchable galleries.  I'm just a semi-pro photographer having fun shooting a race, and trying to get back to the finish line in time to support my wife.  So if I didn't get a shot of you, I apologize.

Below are two very small highlight galleries to the "Bryce" and "Zion" courses.  I didn't shoot Horseshoe Bend (day 3) because permit conditions didn't allow spectators.  At the top of the highlight galleries there are links (or will be soon) to the full galleries on my SmugMug store front site.

The non-sporting side of life...

A couple of highlight galleries away from the "sidelines".  Sometimes just getting away, sometimes a side trip between sidelines.
