Traveling sports photography in December

December was non-stop travel. Columbus, Cleveland, Phoenix, Las Vegas, San Francisco, Denver… For more than a month straight I don’t think I spent more than three days home at a time. That’s the name of the game, but it certainly starts to take a toll that time of year. By this point in the season the travel […]


Bengals and Steelers Part One in November

The Bengals and Steelers had an infamous trio of meetings in 2015 and they all started on November 1. Pittsburgh was another fun road trip for the Bengals coverage squad of Jim Owczarski, Paul Dehner Jr., Kareem Elgazzar and myself. And for just for good measure, they threw Reds beat writer C. Trent Rosecrans on […]


More Reds and Bengals and Bearcats in October

October brought on more rain. And the final photo I ever shot of Todd Frazier in a Reds uniform. And more rain. The Reds season broke records for time spent in rain delay and I definitely set new personal records for time spent standing in the rain like an idiot. Oddly enough, once the Reds […]


Football is back in September

With the Reds season pretty much an afterthought by September, it was officially football season. The excitement around the Bengals and the Bearcats, including the newly renovated Nippert Stadium, was pretty high. People were ready to move on from all of the talk of Reds trades and get to back to football. The reopening of […]


Pay off in July

For all the craziness of June, July was the pay off. Cincinnati hosted the 2015 MLB All-Star Game, the big moment I had been looking forward to since I first accepted my new job at The Enquirer. For a kid who grew up loving and playing baseball and always dreaming of playing in the All-Star […]


Cincinnati heats up in June

May had come and gone pretty quietly. I was really excited to back at it, working full-time in a newsroom and getting re-acquainted with Cincinnati, The Enquirer, my old new co-workers, my new new co-workers, the equipment and just the workflow in general. May was pretty easy and it went by pretty fast. June was […]


A new chapter, back in Cincinnati

In May 2015 I accepted an offer to return to the Cincinnati Enquirer as a full-time sports photographer. I was in a great position at Ohio State University, but an opportunity to return to a city I love and join the staff of the newspaper where I interned during college, and return to the kind […]


Best of April from Columbus

The weather finally seemed to break in April. The sun is put later, the trees are green again… this is my favorite time of year to shoot, and thankfully the gray days of winter are gone for at least a few months. I had some fun in April. Miley Cyrus came to town, which made […]


Video: Columbus Blue Jackets suffer at box office

Last month I got to do my first real video at The Dispatch. I went out to a few Blue Jackets games just for a story about poor attendance at the Blue Jackets games. Despite having a few successful seasons in a row now, attendance is actually down from last season and the teams is […]


March clips from Columbus

March provided a good mix of photos. The weather started to shape up and it was easier to spend more time outside. The OHSAA basketball playoffs took place and Ohio State’s basketball regular season came to a close. Hockey continued and the Columbus Crew began MLS action. Just like hockey back in November, I shot […]


February clips from Columbus

February was another cold and snowy month. And short. February is always so weird every year. You seem to spend the entire month inside and before you know it, it’s already over and you barely remember what you shot in those three weeks. Looking back February was a big month of sports and portraits. That […]


Best of December clips from Columbus

December was a big month of change. I packed my bags and moved from Lorain, Ohio, down to Columbus. I gave up the title of Staff Photographer at The Morning Journal for an opportunity to intern with the Ohio News Photographers Association’s best photo staff at The Columbus Dispatch. The move seemed kind of crazy, considering […]
