LA Galaxy-3718

A Month of Arizona United Soccer

I had the good fortune to be on the pitch for 3 soccer matches for the Arizona United Soccer (or football) Club this summer.  The team plays in the USL Pro League. I have not shot able-bodied or a ‘real’ soccer much. It is a good sport for a photographer in a wheelchair. Pretty easy…

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…




Delagrave-4675

Joe Delegrave, Paralympic Rugby Player for New Mobility

I’ve gotten to know Joe Delagrave in the course of photographing wheelchair rugby.  He is currently co-captain of Team USA and plays on the Phoenix Heat.   Joe is also employed and has a family.  The combination makes him a rare figure in the PwD world and as such, a good story. One thing I…

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…

Professional Lifestyle Photos of a Nurse

My wife, Karla recently graduated from Nursing School. And she nailed the state nursing exam. So it was finally time to get out her resume and find a job. Getting a job was stressing her out.  So we decided to get some shots for her LinkIn account. We didnt have a hospital or doctors office…



2014-NM-Kaitlyn

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…
