New Year, New Images

The new year is in full swing and I have been shooting like a mad-man. Graduations, basketball and lots of snow related assignments. Check out a sampling of what I have been up to below, as usual, click an image to enter the slideshow for the best viewing…

Best of News::2015

It took me a while to get it together, but here is the second part of my “Best of 2015” post. Check out the previous post for images of sports, presented here are more news related images from the past year. I would like to put together one more as a “Best of Personal Work” but I will need to get a scanner as I shot almost exclusively film when not at work…Find me in person and I will let you dig through my box of prints if that appeals to you. In the mean time, please enjoy a selection of my favorite images from the past year. As always the best way to view the images is to click on the first one and enter slideshow mode…

 

Best of Sports::2015

While digging through the last years worth of images working on a “best of” post I came to the realization that my sports shots really needed their own post. This style of photography, while not something I ever thought I would do so much of, is a major part of what I do, but different enough from the rest that I think it justifies a separate post. Below is a variety of images which actually lean toward “sports feature” instead of sports action, good sport feature is really the more difficult side of sports shooting. While I may have been better shots throughout the year, Jah knows there were enough of them, here are 25 that I tend to like…

Wrestling Santa and Other Pastimes

Lots of wrestling, my first santa assignment of the year *sigh* a discotheque and some other stuff too. Have begun to work on a ‘Best of 2015’ post, stay tuned for that in the coming weeks as time allows.

A Snapshot of November

Well once again I have let another month slip away without really blogging about anything…Here is a quick snapshot of some of what I covered for the month of November. New bars, schools, courts, salons, sports and more…

 

The Politics of a Sports Tattoo

The name kind of says it all, another fairly diverse week. This wasn’t everything I shot, but more like a highlight reel of a few good assignments. Arizona Governor Doug Ducey visited a local school, the city council whatever it is they do, there were lots of sports and a memorial tattoo day…

A Fair, Two Portraits and Some Mining

Have you ever wondered who makes up the staff at the Arizona Daily Sun? No? Well I was asked to photograph the news room staff for an award ceremony, below is almost everyone. Stereotypes about the auto repair industry being male dominated? One young lady is helping to break that apart, see photo below. Local residents are upset about a possible gravel mine being built, and I was able to attend the Coconino County Fair for the first time ever last weekend, pretty good stuff, pretty diverse weekend.

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…

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.

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…
