A little bit about me…………..

I really really prefer to be behind the lens. I cringe when it comes to publicity about me. I’m very happy with a long lens and a spot in the corner where I can blend in and take athletes and models who far more deserve some attention. When I knew I was going to the…

Quick Drone Flight

Okay, no wheelchairs, no adaptive sports. Just a nice sunset at a favorite place to watch sunsets in Phoenix.

Wheelchair Basketball – Sorta

I was asked to photograph a promotional campaign for the accessible seating program at Talking Stick Resort Arena which is home to the Phoenix Suns. The purpose of the images was to depict where the accessible seating was available and to demonstrate how much fun can be had at a game. This type of shot…




Sled Hockey-5321

TeamUSA Women’s Sled Hockey Team vs. the Phoenix Coyotes

Spent the afternoon at a friendly scrimmage between the TeamUSA Women’s Sled (or is it Sledge) Hockey Team and the Phoenix Coyotes. The ladies are preparing for the Paralympics in 2 years. I opted to sit up high and shoot through the netting. Pretty happy with the results using the 400mm f2.8. Players: Brynn Duncan…

Quite a Contrast……………

Its been a while since I posted. The lapse is mostly due to how busy I’ve been. I am part of the creative team at Ability360.  We now publish LivAbility Magazine.  We dropped our 3rd edition last week.  Along the way I found time to photograph the subjects of two of the featured stories.  What…

2015 Parapan Games – Toronto

They’ll be the…

In Studio: Amy Van Dyken

Amy showed up and was a riot to work with for this cover shoot. The plan was to first record for a video then our stills. We had set up the night before and to my surprise on arrival, everything had been moved. Very moved. So we slammed it all together the second the video…

This year AzDS really upped the ante and moved the show to Arizona State University in Tempe. The…

Paratriathlon Photo (plus a bit of Photoshop)

I all but hate working in photoshop. It is a chore for me. Im not good at it and I usually dont like the results. But after I photographed Allysa Seely, a Team USA Paratriathlon competitor last year I began to develop this image I wanted to create of her. I knew it couldnt be…

Oh For The Love of Team Shots

If there’s a dread in my life it’s the call for doing team photos. Nobody want to be there, nobody enjoys it. Nobody likes the photos. But yet every year, the call goes out. Sure enough one guy was a no show, so I opted to shoot individual shots and composite them together. By using…
