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…

 

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…

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.

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…

Holiday Photo Essays

This wasn’t a very busy week in news (at least around Flagstaff) This did however, provide the opportunity to take a little more time with the couple of assignments I did have  and produce short photo essays to accompany them (rather and the more typical one off photo). First off, I looked at the Northern Arizona Law Enforcement Toy Drive. Then on Christmas day, went around with a reporter and talked to people that were traveling by various means over the holiday. Both were interesting ways to spend a day, links to the original stories are here and here…Click the first image to enter the slide show and see captions…

 

Winding down December

Basketball season is heating up even as the temperatures around Flagstaff drop. With three high schools (six teams) and NAU (two teams), basketball is pretty much non-stop. As such, I have included quite a few shots of that…I also took a tour of a new lumber mill that has opened in Williams, Ariz. (about 30 min. west of Flagstaff). Newpac Fibre is bringing industry jobs to the area, which was formerly a logging king. The photo essay follows basketball…
