Recent Stuff

I've been all over the place the last few weeks, and even managed to sneak in a short vacation. Anyway, here is a sample of some of my favorites from recent assignments.



June 15, 2008 - Dale Earnhardt, Jr., cheers in Winner's Circle after winning his first race on NASCAR's premier racing circuit, the Sprint Cup Series, in more than two years (since May 6, 2006), by holding off Kasey Kahne on a restart to take the checkered flag at the LifeLock 400 on Sunday at Michigan International Speedway.

June 17, 2008 - Midland, Mich. - Fort Wayne Wizards first baseman Felix Carrasco hits a one-out double in the bottom of the ninth inning to give the East team runners on second and third. East couldn't get a run in, and Clinton Lumber Kings outfielder Tim Smith hit a solo blast in the top of the 10th inning to give the West team a 5-4 victory in the Midwest League All-Star Game at Dow Diamond, home of the Great Lakes Loons, on Tuesday in Midland, Michigan.

The Knights' basketball and baseball titles were the first in school history, while the football team won it's seventh championship.

Nice portrait. Was that drip already there or did you have someone back there making a splash? Do you work for the paper or are you freelance?

Wayne,

The drip was there. I knew it would give me the highlight I wanted out of my back light so I used it. I didn't realize how fast it was dripping as I would rather have had a slow drip, but I had literally five minutes to pull off a portrait of these guys.

To answer your other question, both. I am a staff sports photographer (who also writes) for The News-Sentinel, and I do freelance jobs when I have the time.

Thanks for the comment.

Chad
