    I'd love to start by saying thanks to Scott and Brad for the opportunity to share. Its quite an honor to be in the midst of such great people on this blog,but also a great challenge because so many great things have already been said here! I never planned on being a photographer. I never went to school for photography and never really spent much time assisting. Its still sometimes shocking to me that this is where I ended up. I grew up with a heavy fine art background so it was not rare to see my brother and I spending time on the weekends or after school, painting, drawing or creating. In college, I majored in painting and honestly had no clue where it would lead me career wise…. but I loved it. I was obsessed with art. The culture, the history, the…

    (Above: My new Retina MacBook Pro, shot with my iPhone, but there's something missing that should be there). It's Game Day! When you shoot an event for a sports wire service, they need the images from the game as soon as possible, and so during halftime I upload half-a-dozen images, and then immediately after the game, from the photographer's work room at the stadium, I transmit (as it's called) another 25 or so final images. They have free wireless in the workroom (and now, in the entire stadium for fans as I noticed on Friday), and there are power plugs and a counter to work on. (Above: Another iPhone shot, this one of the Photographer's Work Room at Raymond James Stadiums. Ahhhh, the glamorous life of a sports photographer. They really go all out for us. LOL!!! There are two rooms like this, side…

    ...especially being rusty (regular season football has been over for nearly eight months), and for making some stupid mistakes (coming up in a moment), so you can totally understand why I did a BIG happy dance when I saw one of my shots from Friday's Bucs vs. Titans NFL Football game (above) on the front page of SportsIllustrated.com's NFL home page. That came after two of my shots had been on Zumapress.com's Sports "Pictures of the Day" (shown below). (Above: I'm not certain, but that just may be a "hold." Wink). Mistakes were made I've shot in Raymond James Stadium a number of times before, so I knew in advance what settings to use for a night game (which this was), so as soon as I took my camera out of the bag, I set up my camera with those settings. [Aperture Priority mode,…

    I'm going to have more than 300 photographers at my "Photoshop for Photographers" seminar on Wednesday in Sacramento, but if you haven't signed up yet, I'll save a seat for you. I've only had the opportunity to teach in Sacramento one time, back in 2008 so I'm really excited to be back, and I hope you'll come out and join me (here's the link). >> It's only $99 for the full day, or just $79 if you're a NAPP member). The video below tells you all about the tour and what you'll learn. Also, if you're closer to Denver, I'll be there the following week, so I hope to see you at one of these two cities really soon! http://youtu.be/B5PqpxuYQaQ  

    That's right baby, NFL Football Season is here, and I've been assigned to cover the Tampa Bay Buccaneers home games for Zuma Press, and I am psyched! I've got a season credential to shoot all 10 home games, starting with tonight's pre-season against the Tennessee Titans, and then next week the Bucs play at home again against the Patriots, and the first Regular Season home game is against the Carolina Panthers. I'm really looking forward to working with Zuma Press this year (they featured a couple of my shots last year for their "Sports Photo of the Day"), but I'm still very grateful to Kathy Miller and the great folks at Southcreek Global Media (which closed last year) for the opportunities and support they gave me, which led to me getting me in front of the folks at Zuma. I'll have more to share…
