Livability I - Amy2

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…

4th Cover of 2014

Its been a good year for covers. I suppose it is an ego thing but with respect to editorial work, its either the cover or who cares. I suppose I’d feel different if Rolling Stone or Sports Illustrated called, but thats my take – today. Renee Tyree is one of those girls who is just…

Adaptive Tia Chi Magazine Cover Shot

Very happy to see a photograph of mine used by PN Magazine for their September edition. Erie Chun plays for Team USA Parlympic Wheelchair Rugby team. We see each other at SpoFit quite a bit. So when the magazine editor called and wanted a photo of someone to go with a Tia Chi story, I…

Wheelchair Access at the ol’ Baseball Stadium

Yet another cover shot that was created in the bottom of the ninth.  I hate to admit it but we literally found our talent (Dan) as we arrived.  This photo was probably one of the first 5 frames.  We then drug him around the entire stadium getting another 100-200 shots of little use.  The reason…

Photos for a Disability Survival Guide

I’m very lucky to have a full time job where they are constantly needing photography related to disabilities. AND there is a constant flow of interesting people (with disabilities)that I can usually coax into working with me to create interesting images for say a magazine! Check out ABIL & SpoFit. So one day I got…



David Martin uses a wheelchair. He is a mechanic and a business owner.

Mechanic in Wheelchair Cover Shot

This is the type of assignment I love. Plenty of time, a budget, an art director (Rick at R Squared), willing models and a primo location. David Martin runs Martin’s Auto Repair in Phoenix. He’s one big dude who makes his wheelchair look incredibly small. Somewhat eerily, the art director and myself both know David…

Sex, Relationships & Wheelchairs

Hands down this has been my favorite project I’ve ever worked on.  I had met Kaitlyn a time or two when taking basketball photos.  When New Mobility called about shooting their annual romance cover story I knew she’d be perfect.  And the best part of it all was I had plenty of time to plan…

Lifestyle Photos of Two Girls Being Two Girls

  Jessica Larsen is a friend who plays just about every adaptive sport I photograph. So we bump into each other a lot.  I mentioned to her that I thought she’d make a good model.  Mom brought her by and we shot some head shots. So maybe three weeks after, an editor called.  I sent…

SpoFit Opens – Adaptive Sports Center for People with Disabilities

SpoFit opened in November, 2011.  New Mobility editor, Tim Gilmer attended the grand opening.  He must have liked it as he asked I shoot a photo for their cover story.  We talked about it quite a bit and I struggle to get a concept.   I knew I wanted to include Phil Pangrazio, ABIL’s CEO and…
