Saving Rivers and Building More Buildings

Below are two photos essays I worked on over the past few weeks that have finally published in print, and thusly, here. First up is a story about efforts to save and restore the Verde River, a critical desert riparian habitat. Please read the original story here…

Second up is less of an essay per se, and maybe more of a tour of a new building. With the growth of Northern Arizona University comes the need to house all of these new students. Insert high-density, student-oriented housing complexes all over town. *editorial* The rents are high, social problems are many, their soul is engineered, but the steady march forward seems unavoidable. Enjoy…

Electric Kingdom September

The Last Week of August -or- Beginning of Football Season

Last week was not a very busy week in news; however, high school sports season is in full swing. Three football games in as many days kicked off what is really beginning to feel like fall here in Flagstaff.

Animals, Artists and an Airshow

Fairly diverse week as far as assignments go. Did everything from a river tour, more on that in a few weeks, checked out a local air show, toured area artist studios and watched as 4-H Club kids prepared for the annual Coconino County Fair.

Campus Construction Continues

Just shy of one year ago I photographed for a story about construction of the new Science and Health building at Northern Arizona University. I took a tour of the construction site and climbed the several hundred foot tall construction crane for better views of the build. Check out a couple of photos as part of another blog post here…

Construction has completed and the building is ready to take students this fall. As a kind of follow up, I was given a tour of the completed building. Below is a brief photo tour of the very modern looking/feeling Science and Health Building…

Last Week, Mostly…

Keeping the habit going…Here are highlights from a few assignments from last week. I shot a couple more, but they haven’t run in print yet and I guess I shouldn’t scoop my employer…

Beginning of August

Hasn’t been the busiest beginning of the month as far as local news goes, but with area schools starting  in the coming weeks, that is sure to change. Either way here is a look at some of the stories I have been covering for the first part of this month…

Some Summer Snaps

Here are a few snaps from a few assignments I have done over the last few months. I will continue working on keeping weekly, but at least monthly updates of my exploits…

Flagstaff Pro Rodeo 2015

Well despite my best efforts to keep up, I have been a slacker. Super busy on my end means less time to think about blogging. Either way, here is a selection of images from the second annual Flagstaff Pro Rodeo that took place this weekend.

Some Recent Prints

Been off the blog train for a while, that’s not to say that I haven’t been shooting, quite the opposite. So far 2015 has been a very busy year, look for additional updates in the coming weeks as I try to get weekly updates going again.

In the mean time, here is a selection of images taken this spring. They are photos of original black and white prints I made in the darkroom, but was somewhat too lazy to actually scan them for the blog. Enjoy…
