I have worked in photography for a number of years. Back in college I worked at the Photographic Services at the University of Idaho doing everything from processing film, shooting portraits and live events to printing 1000’s of black/white and color prints. I also spent a good part of my time shooting sports on both the University of Idaho and Washington State University campuses for both the universities’ sports information departments as well as the Associated Press. Thus the beginning of my love for sports photography. I kind of took a break from the photography world, but decided I could not let the digital age leave me in the dust. So I purchased a camera, spent as much on a new lens as I did on my camera body and fought my way back into the sports photography world. Today I shoot a variety of subjects to include sports, environmental themed senior and family portraits, landscapes and just about everything else. I have had my work published on ESPN.com, SI.com, IdahoSports.com and numerous other websites as well as the LA Times, Arizona Republic, Idaho Press-Tribune, Idaho Statesman, Coeur d’Alene Press, Bonners Ferry Herald, Priest River Times, Lewiston Morning Tribune, Moscow-Pullman Daily News, the Argonaut, Gem of the Mountains, Bugle Magazine and the Idaho High School Sports Preview. Now that I have established myself in the Treasure Valley, I have had the opportunity to cover a variety of sports and entertainment events for Getty Images to include NCAA athletics featuring Boise State, University of Idaho, Idaho State University as well as NASCAR. I have covered the majority of the teams participating in both the Mountain West Conference, Great Northwest Athletic Conference and the Western Athletic Conference. Major events that I have covered include the Mountain West Conference Championship game, GNAC Indoor Track and Field Championships, NCAA DII West Region Volleyball Championship, Bob Firman XC Invitational as well as the Idaho Potato Bowl and Las Vegas Bowl. I am currently accepting Senior Portrait and freelance sports photography assignments, but my schedule is filling up fast so give me a call and let’s make some memories!
