Photographing sports is a passion of mine. Any time I get the chance I jump on it. The Snoopy Ice Arena is a fantastic place to get great shots of the players in action.

On the wall of En Garde Fencing in Santa Rosa California is a cluster of broken foil’s. Anytime a foil is broken during a match the broken foil is placed among the others. To me this was a gold mine of opportunity. When I took this photo I thought it would be interesting, but when [...]

The SoCoPhoGro (Sonoma County Photography Group) is meeting up to shoot this years event. Do you have a camera and want the opportunity [...]
Here is a fun photo. My step-son Jake asked me to take some photos of him on his skateboard doing tricks. After about an hour of some outstanding tricks on his behalf and some wicked cool shots on my behalf we headed back home. I was of course on foot following him on his skateboard [...]
