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.

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…

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…

I’m a Star Now

As you may or may not know, in addition to working for the local Flagstaff newspaper, The Arizona Daily Sun, I spend half my week working in a professional darkroom (yes that’s still a thing) making prints for all sorts of clients. Artists, government agencies and other private individuals are among the people I work with. I have prints that are in the Library of Congress, the JFK Library, hotels, offices as well as galleries and homes all over the country. Specific clients that I do regular printing for include Dan Budnik, Shane Knight, David Brookover, Jerry Jacka and more…

Recently a student at Northern Arizona University, Nick Humphries, approached me to ask if he could do a short documentary project for class about me and what I do photographically. After talking for a while, I suggested that while the newspaper is interesting, he should see what I do at the darkroom. He did, I talked into a microphone about it and below is the finished project. I thought it came out pretty well, enjoy…

Update::There was a slightly updated version of the video that includes a few more photos and a surprise ending featuring surprise stuff.

The Last Week? I think…

A weekly update for you my little droogies. Some stuff from the last week. Perhaps nothing earth shattering but it is what I did…I have been feeling better about my sports shots lately, I do after all shoot a lot of them. Click on an image to enter the slide show and see caption info.

Photo-J Favorites One Year In

It has been quite a year…I started working as a staff photographer for the Arizona Daily Sun, Flagstaff’s local news paper, took over black and white printing operations for Hidden Light and did a lot of personal stuff in addition. Below is a slide show of about 30 of my favorite images taken while on assignment for the Sun during my first year as an official photojournalist. Some of these have been on this blog before, but perhaps that is for a reason, this is not a complete best-of-year, just best-of-year-at-the daily sun… Click on an image to enter the slide show and see caption info…

200th Post…

mahoney_20100918_1065

I started this blog back in October 2010 as part of a project for a journalism class I was taking at Northern Arizona University. Little did I know that I would gather such an incredible international following, continue blogging at all, or even enjoy it…To celebrate this milestone, I want to finish the story that started it all. The Jerome Jamboree Volkswagon Convention. Please check out the first two parts, Part One Here, and Part Two Here…The assignment was over and I moved on to other projects, but now, here is the dramatic conclusion… Continue reading
