I'm going to try firing up the blog again for 2016, especially the nature/landscape side of things. It is in desperate need of a redesign so I will be working on that while shooting for KSTV.

Unfortunately slideshows on older posts have been disabled by flickr. You can find all of my work in my gallery.

UK Blue-White Scrimmage 2011

I had the opportunity to shoot the Blue-White scrimmage thanks to my friends over at Kentucky Wild-cast . It was my first time having credentials at Rupp Arena. What an experience! I would like to thank Brian, DeWayne Peevy, and all those who were kind enough to offer advice and help show me the ropes down on the floor. I learned so much. Just an amazing experience all around. Hopefully I will get a chance to do it again soon.

Homecoming 2011

The Cats picked up a much needed win over Jacksonville State in front of a sparse crowd at Commonwealth Stadium over Homecoming weekend. Took a few shots from my seat. Excuse the blur. A little too much "brown water." ;)

Big Blue Madness 2011

With 23,000+ cheering on and a laser light show to rival any rock concert, the Kentucky basketball season got off to a much anticipated start last night in Lexington. This year's Madness had everything from exploding pyrotechnics, cheerleaders, dancers, clouds of smoke, heart-pounding music, and a moon-walking coach. We had special appearances by our locked-out "UK in the NBA" pros and even a LeBron James infomercial thrown in. We stood in awe as a new Final Four banner unfurled from Rupp's rafters, got a glimpse of the "NextCats" and even got a chance to watch a little basketball.

So Coach Cal's sermon went a little long and the lighting during the scrimmages was worse than the Pros game at the Chicken Bucket, but all in all it was a great night. For the many that camped out for tickets and the thousands more who helped sell out Rupp online in less than an hour, it is not about the glitz and the glamour. It is about getting together to celebrate with those who understand, without any explanation necessary, the passion that is Kentucky basketball. Thanks to the miracle of television and the internet, the whole world gets a chance to feel the Kentucky Effect and see what it means to say...We are UK!
