Finally joined the Exposure.co ranks by creating my first story. Such a smooth experience, and I look forward to seeing this platform grow and expand as well as learning how to push its boundaries with my material. 

Peep my story of Shadow and Danielle as they promised their lives to each other in front of a small group of friends in a small park in Morgantown.

Shot baseball today... baseball walked off in comeback drama....... I was at a prom taking pictures of high school kids during said walk off....

I really dislike being the only staffer available on Saturdays sometimes. Nonetheless, some #WVU  baseball.

Got to shoot a baseball game with some +Scott Thomas - like snow today...

Ross Vance, the WVU pitcher, got the call to make his first start today. He found out last night, and his dad flew from Texas to West Virginia to see him play today. The kid went 9 innings and k'd up 14 to get the win in his first career start -- this after walking in the lone Ohio State in the second frame. Pretty cool stuff.

I forgot gloves... not cool. Also, it was 75-80 over the last week. Fun.

Sorry about the strike-through formatting last night... No idea why that happened, because it wasn't written the way Google describes.

The Boys of Summer might have to rethink the title this year.  ;;-)

Every high school game I shoot seems to end in three or four innings with someone getting trounced, but hopefully I'll get to shoot a good game with Oklahoma State in for a weekend series at West Virginia, the first Big 12 college play in Morgantown this season.

These shots are from a game earlier this evening... Morgantown High School was routed 12-0 in five frames -- the minimum required for the 'mercy rule' to take effect.

Shot +Flogging Molly last night in Pittsburgh... here's a link to the work gallery, and I'll upload a couple shots to Google+ later when I get a chance to comb more finely.

Most of the shots here were with a D4 housing a 50mm 1.8, but a couple of them were on a D700 with a 17-35. I shot a few on a 7D with a 70-200, but none in this gallery.

Ok, these stories are pretty cool. This was our trip to cover the Pinstripe Bowl a couple years back, and I'm just sharing it so the guys involved can see it, but I like the potential for covering events, weddings, sports, etc...

Played some co-op seasons games with Pavsy (Scootzy) this afternoon -- have to love an actually relaxing off day.

This may be my favorite baseball photo I've taken to date... I just wish we had photo pits so I would have been lower to the ground.

Oklahoma St. first baseman Tanner Krietemeier makes a diving grab on a ball popped foul off the first base line during the Cowboys' win over WVU Saturday afternoon at Hawley Field in Morgantown.

WVU lost the Big 12 Conference's top scoring two guard this week when Eron Harris asked for a release from his scholarship in order to seek a transfer. Slightly bummed about it. Harris was one of my favorites to shoot in and out of action. This shot is of #10 celebrating a three during the Mountaineers' upset over Kansas a couple weeks ago in Morgantown.

Still editing a fantastic game between West Virginia University and Kansas St., but I wanted to post a shot I got with the new toy today. A friend of mine gave me his old Rokinon 8mm fisheye when he upgraded to one with the chip in it, so I had to climb into the students' section and try it out.

Love the use of fish-eyes in sports pictures.

I'm still alive, I swear!

Here are some shots from Tuesday's game featuring the West Virginia Mountaineers vs the #20 Gonzaga Bulldogs in Morgantown, W.Va.

I'll be spending some time over the holidays catching up on a backlog of about three months while re-cataloging recent material, and I'll find a way to add a lot of that stuff to Google+ as well.

Story
Tagline
I like to carry around this Canon-made toy that turns light into images.
Introduction
There is nothing in this world that I love more than taking pictures. 

Some days, that means photographing West Virginia University athletics, and others it means being in a sweaty concert pit waiting for a perfect stage moment to capture. 

Sometimes it means that I'm scouring the countryside or inner city looking for "beauty", and sometimes it means racing downtown to photograph breaking news in the middle of the night.

No matter the reason, I'm happy behind a lens.

Beyond being a photographer, I'm a writer and designer, an athlete and a coach, and a little-league heart in a grown up body.

I'm a connoisseur of passion, and I love love. Sometimes, I even write about it with a rhythm and a rhyme.

I'm a sports fanatic (Penguins, Pirates, Steelers, Red Bulls (RBNY), Union, WVU), and I'm a lover of all things with a beat. Last.fm <-- Recent tracks.

My links are to the right... and please, don't be shy to comment or critique anything I may post.

Great pizza for a great price. Morgantown is missing a pizza place that has a sweeter tasting crust/sauce like Fiori's and Giovanni's in Pittsburgh, though.
