Something strange happened this football season. I photographed several more daytime football games than I usually do.
I love the daytime games because the light is better, deadline is far away and I should be able to get home (or to my hotel room) before midnight.
I took advantage of the daylight by... Read More

100th All-State football team December 27, 2012 This year our high school sports writers picked The Oklahoman’s 100th All-State football team and asked me if I could do something to make it look a little “old school.” I happily agreed, deciding to use film for the project. I took the pictures with a Fuji GF670 medium format camera set to... Read More
Jerry Laizure, 1953-2012 December 12, 2012 Last week we lost Jerry Laizure. He was a legend in the Oklahoma photo community and one of the best people you could have ever met. Always helpful and witty, Jerry made every assignment easier and a lot of fun. Once you were part of Jerry’s club (and just about everybody was), he would do... Read More

Fall Colors November 10, 2012 One of my favorite things about being a photojournalist is documenting the change of the seasons. Of course, Fall is one of the most beautiful times of the year. It is a time when the colors around us are the most vibrant and diverse. I have spent recent afternoons enjoying the weather and scenery.... Read More
Covering the Oklahoma Democratic Watch Party November 07, 2012 I had never covered a watch party before tonight. It was definitely a lot more than I expected. From 7 p.m. to when it was announced that Obama was re-elected, the energy in the room never wavered. There was a live band, people cheering, and definitely a lot more alcohol than I would have imagined. Read More
The faithful football assistant November 05, 2012 I have no idea if Iowa State head football coach Paul Rhoads has broken the clip on his headset’s belt pack or he just prefers to not have the weight on him. Either way, I found this sort of funny. Read More
Meet Keegan October 26, 2012 I usually cover football games involving high school or college athletes, with an emphasis on game action and the final score. But a few weeks ago I had the privilege of photographing Keegan Erbst and the Sequoyah Middle School football in Edmond. Keegan suffers from muscular dystrophy and... Read More
