Link to Purchase Prints

Anyone interested in purchasing prints of photographs I have taken may follow the recently installed "Purchase Prints" link on the right side of the page. The link will take you to an online storefront where I have a portfolio for viewing purposes only and a gallery of photos for sale. I am unable to sell photos that I make while working for The News-Sentinel, but I do have a collection of stock images that I will be adding to regularly. Some of the galleries listed right now include art of various subjects including wildlife, nature, landscape, still life, lightpaintings and sports.

I am available to shoot portraits, formal studio and environmental on location, weddings, corporate outings and sporting events. I provide professional quality images at competitive prices. To discuss your photographic needs, send me an email or leave a comment.

Thanks again for stopping by.

Finally getting my head above water.

It's been a few weeks since my last post, and rest assured, I haven't been slacking. I spent four out of the last five weekends in Indianapolis covering high school state championships for team and individual wrestling, girls and boys swimming and diving and girls basketball. I'll be on my way back to Indy this weekend to cover the girls gymnastics championship, and if Harding's boys basketball team makes it out of the semi-state this weekend, I'll be on my way to the state finals again the following weekend. Aside from all of that, I managed to squeeze in a Komets game and shoot some local news events as well last weekend.

Last week during spring break, I decided to get some things done around the house. I installed the shelving system that my wife got for my office closet. During the process, I found some old negatives from the Komets' early 90's seasons. I looked through the pile of old stuff and there happened to be a couple of shots of two members of the "Ice Patrol" doing what they did best. One frame is of Killer Kaminski mixing it up, and the other is of Stve Fletcher delivering a monster body check in the corner. Now, these photos are not the best I've taken, but keep in mind, I was 19 years old shooting for a newspaper in Columbia City with antique equipment.


A little hard to see, but this photo is of the Killer in action. I loved going to games that year. That was my kind of hockey.
















I'm a fairly big guy, and I could deliver a pretty good hit on the ice when I played hockey. But I'm certain I would've tried to get out of Fletch's way if I saw him coming at me. Fletch was one big, tough dude, and although he didn't score much, he had quite a slapshot.

I plan to update the site with new photos from recent Komet games as well as some of the state championship images. Check back occasionally to see what's up. As always, I appreciate your time spent on this blog and any feedback you might have, so, leave a comment or send me an email message.

Thanks for looking!
