Our beautiful city stopped everything today to honor Muhammad Ali Friday, whose contributions I'm only really beginning to understand. It was incredibly moving to see the thousands pay tribute; to hear them tell his family "we love you" as they passed in the procession. Wonderful day to be a Louisvillian.

Las Vegas sports bettor Billy Walters, Las Vegas, 2011.
Walters was arrested on federal conspiracy and securities fraud charges last week, the result of a long FBI investigation that also implicated pro golfer Phil Mickelson and the former chairman of Dean Foods.

I made this portrait of him quickly after he met and discussed some of his then-recent business dealings with the editorial board of the Las Vegas Review-Journal, where I was a staff photographer. This picture has been used in publications all over the country this week, including the Times and the Wall Street Journal.

Walters, the most successful sports bettor of all time (and a multimillionaire many times over because of that success), has been under investigation by authorities for decades but has come up clean until now.

It’s always so interesting to see my photographs find new life and context years after they were made.

A few images from Derby 2015. Spent the majority of the day working for an amazing client, but also got a few candids. Thanks for looking!

Best Derby yet! Spent the day at Churchill Downs fulfilling the photo needs of a fantastic client, and snagged a few candids along the way. Legitimately can’t wait until next year. How many days until...

Recent work: Visuals for an essay on personalized learning (aka technology in the classroom) for medium.com. Thanks for looking! https://medium.com/bright/ipads-teachers-e51896af3930
Why technology-assisted learning will never, on its own, solve our education crisis.

Recent work for The Wall Street Journal, published today: http://www.wsj.com/…/cdc-identifies-counties-at-risk-of-hiv…

I photographed people in Austin, Indiana, a rural town that saw an HIV outbreak tied to IV drug injection last year. In Austin, while there are some success stories, the underlying addiction that fueled the outbreak persists mostly unabated. The CDC has recently identified more than 200 U.S. counties that are at risk for similar outbreaks due to drug abuse.

Had fun setting up a mobile studio this week at Gazelle, a web-based retailer whose processing facility is in Louisville, to shoot used consumer tech for a story on anti-consumerism in today's New York Times http://www.nytimes.com/2016/04/28/technology/personaltech/taking-the-stigma-out-of-buying-usedelectronics.html
Pre-owned products can be purchased with confidence; they are subject to rigorous testing and often come with return policies.
