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.

In Pursuit of 8

My images have been published, displayed, purchased and used for many purposes. None cooler than this: 

The artwork was created by Logan Poe (@stl40361) using my image below from the TN game. You can download the full size desktop wallpaper now on wildcatworld.com

I captured the moment just after a small "altercation" that ignited the Rupp crowd. 

As the players headed to the sideline and officials huddled, the guys hooked their arms around one another. It speaks volumes about the unity they have developed and their support and protection of one another. It is one of my favorite shots of the season so far. Thank you for all of your kind comments. 
Logan also created the amazing alternate designs below. You can download them here and here. Go Cats! #gr8ness

Rest assured: Jarnell Stokes has learned the team stretch

Jimmy Dykes can rest a bit easier now that Jarnell Stokes has indeed learned the team stretch. I can see why the ballet-like maneuvers might have been problematic for a newcomer. lol

After having multiple shots blocked in UT's 69-44 loss to No. 1 Kentucky, Stokes said he was humbled and upset. He drew the ire of Kentucky fans this week by telling GoVolsXtra.com, "It definitely made me more hungry. I definitely wanted to win,'' he said. "If anything, I want to win at Rupp Arena. I plan on winning, before I leave, at Rupp Arena. I'm saying that on the record right now. It made me more hungry and made me dislike Kentucky more.''

I thought the majority of fans in Rupp appeared curious and respectful of Stokes during the game and people seemed genuinely excited to see him in action. I'm guessing his return to Rupp Arena will not be as cordial!

Nike Hyper Elite Platinum Uniforms

This was one of my favorite shots from the UK/TN game. I love watching the bond forming between these guys and seeing them stand up for one another.

Kentucky also unveiled new Nike Hyper Elite Platinum Uniforms and everyone clamored to get a view of them during warmups. I didn't care for these before the game, but after looking through all the photos and seeing them in person, I love the uniforms. They looked great in Rupp. If they play like that, our guys can make any uniform look good especially when it says Kentucky across the chest! 

The uniforms will be worn by nine of the nation's top college basketball teams in select games this season.
