It was great to have my images from the 2011 US Open included in the Communications Arts Photography Annual 53 this year. I was really happy at the great layout, with 5 images across a two page spread. If you see it out in the store, make sure to flip through it. There is a lot of great work included.
Below is one of my images from the 2011 US Open that was selected for the American Photography 28 Annual. Here it is seen on the web, looking forward to seeing it in the book later this year.
A couple of weeks ago, I traveled to Bay Hill Golf Club in Orlando to photograph Paula Creamer for SAP. Paula was great to shoot again, action, portraits and some non golfing portraits were a great mix. Below are three of my favorite images from the shoot.
Recently I traveled to West Palm Beach to photograph golfing legend Gary Player for SAP. The team had an interesting time shooting, listening to stories about his career and also being randomly challenged to strength tests. This was a great shoot and it was a pleasure to work with a sporting great. Below are two images I found a moment to shoot.
So, with all the writing and discussion about iPhone portraiture, I thought I would post this image of Alex Rodriguez. This is the portrait setup which the iPhone Yankee portraits piggy backed on.
A few weeks back I got a last minute call from Jim at ESPN the Magazine to take a quick 20 hour trip to Detroit to shoot the Detroit Red Wings and Chicago Blackhawks game. The story was to focus on the “original six” rivalry between the two teams and would accompany a story in the upcoming rivalries issue. Here is my view of the game, sadly there were no fights, bloodshed or even a simple riot in the street.
So yes. That was me in the locker room bathroom shooting portraits of the New York Yankees players with my iPhone. This was not my choice, I wasn’t given the option of studio or bathroom stall and decided on the latter. I joined the chain of photographers at 6am in the confines of the New York Yankees Spring Training facility in Tampa, and took what space I could get and worked with it. Below is a set of images shot with my iPhone and processed through Instagram (I shot others with an ”actual” camera, but these are my selects from my iPhone set). Below are; Rodriguez, Ibanez, Teixiera, Jeter, Rivera, Chamberlain, Sabathia, Granderson and Gardner.
I recently traveled to Toronto to photograph Canada’s No.1 tennis player and newly appointed SAP Global Ambassador Milos Raonic at the Toronto Lawn Tennis Club. Below is my favorite image from the shoot.
This is an image I shot of Nick Watney in Columbus, Ohio for a Golf Magazine cover story.
