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 Hoops Photo Day

I had the opportunity to cover Photo Day for the UK women's basketball team on Monday. Herald-Leader photographer Charles Bertram has been one of my photography idols for awhile now. It was a thrill to observe and work next to him. UK photographer Chet White is also fantastic. I was very impressed with how he moved everyone through the morning like the pro he is. You can see his Photo Day gallery here: UK Hoops. UK Athletics has a top-notch staff and everything ran like a well-oiled machine. As always, UK Hoops Head Coach Matthew Mitchell added the comedy. 

Check out my photo gallery from the event on Kentucky Sports Radio. Here's a little more behind-the-scenes fun:


Kentucky opens league play at home vs. Florida on Jan. 3.

Turn Up! Turn Up! Turn Up!

Kentucky Volleyball officially opens its 2012 season hosting the Kentucky Classic on Friday. The Wildcats will face North Carolina at 7 p.m., Aug. 24 at Memorial Coliseum. Fans got their first look at the team during the annual Blue/White scrimmage on Sunday. It was clear the Cats have great depth and a tremendous amount of talent. 

Players from the 15th ranked recruiting class didn't disappoint. Morgan Bergren recorded 34 assists. Freshman Shelby Workman posted 10 kills in the scrimmage.

Only on campus for a few short hours and UK Men's Basketball player Nerlens Noel stopped in to support UKVB!

Senior libero Stephanie Klefot totaled 10 digs for the Blue Team.

The annual Kentucky Football Fan Day was held Saturday at Commonwealth Stadium. Fans were treated to autographs and fireworks after watching an open practice by the team. This year's event had a few interactive additions including on field interviews with players and fans by WKYT's Brian Milam, fan tweets featured on the video board and a broadcast of Dermontti Dawson's Hall of Fame ceremony.
