My first freelance assignment for The Tampa Bay Times is the USF NCAA Watch Party.
A photo David Donaldson photographed in 2009 for a New York Times story was relicensed for a New York Review of Books story on public school education, titled “How, and How Not, to Improve the Schools.” David Donaldson, a high school teacher in the Teach for America program, with his students at the Maryland Academy of Technology and Health Sciences, Baltimore, December 2009.
There are all sorts of stories — most funny, some embarrassing — from my trip to NYC in January. And I had every intention of writing them here! (well, maybe not the Bolt Bus bathroom story. that’s an “in person” story.) …but the task became a bit too daunting. And the longer I waited to [...]
Like I said in the first NYC Biz Trip post, I used the Luceo Altered States gallery opening at 25CPW as a reason to come up and see editors, and vice versa. But as it turned out, I really needed was to hang out with photo friends, like Kendrick Brinson, seen above. — and maybe [...]
Instead of an after dinner mint, our amazing Red Lulu (heads up, their website has audio) waiter brought out a gigantic puff ball of cotton candy!!! …so we did what any civilized person would do — COTTON CANDY FACIAL HAIR! Mike’s quite dapper, no? (MORE PHOTOS BELOW THE JUMP)
The world is funny, isn’t it? Or at lest that how it seems to me. …but then again, I’m the guy who laughs too much during movies. This is the second installment of my Best Runts of 2010. The first is here. Can I first start by saying I can’t stand lifestyle images. You know what [...]
“That doesn’t look like you!” and “Who is that on your ID?” I get that a lot when people see the picture on my laniard. This image was made back in 2004 by fellow intern Deana Mitchell. I was having a hard time looking “normal” that day, so I decided to look “smarmy,” instead. Since [...]
Holy Smokes. You guys see that gigantic visitor’s spike in my google analytics dashboard? That was on the day David Hobby, aka The Strobist, pimped me out on twitter. …his handle is @strobist for those reading this post who didn’t find me through him. 1,835! that’s how many people checked out my blog July 15th, [...]
I know this sounds like I’m bragging — and well, I guess I am a little, but not in a cocky way. It’s more like a “super excited” kind of bragging. I did really well in the recently judged September clip contest. The monthly clip contest doesn’t really go in order. December’s already been judged, [...]
WooHoo!!! I cleaned up in the Illustration category for December’s NPPA: Monthly News Clip Contest.
Pouya and I rescued a toy poodle from the treachery

Michelle Obama jumps rope during The White House Healthy Kids Fair held on the South Lawn Wednesday, October 21, 2009. I shot this while on assignment for the New York Times.
Halloween. Dressed like a cheerleader, using his sister’s River Hill pom-pom uniform, Noah Thyberg, 11, goes trick-or-treating with more than a dozen friends around the River Hill neighborhood Saturday, October 31, 2009. The mask isn’t part of his costume, it’s a post-heart transplant operation preventative measure. The written story is here and here is Part [...]
The vertical scar on Noah Thyberg’s chest is from the heart transplant surgery he received September 3rd. The scar is no problem for the eleven-year-old; it’s the puffiness of his face that makes him self conscious. “I don’t look like me.” His rounder features are a side effect of Prednisone, a prescribed steroid he must [...]
(***Pssst! if you can’t see any photos, please keep reading. I desperately need your feedback. thanks in advance!***) I just made a gallery on my photoshelter page featuring some of my best portraits. After the jump is a slideshow of the gallery for your viewing (and sharing) pleasure. Portraiture is my favorite kind of photography, [...]
I just dropped $99 and got a Graph Paper Press membership for a year. The main draw was my ability to integrate my photoshelter account with my Word Press blog. A FAN-FREAKIN-TASTIC bonus is all the WP tutorials I get from GPP.
My Spring Players of the Year portraits were featured on the STROBIST blog today!!! Thanks David Hobby.
This alley entrance is maybe 150 feet away from my front door. Believe it or not, my neighborhood is really safe. From what I understand, the only major crimes are drug dealing. There isn’t too much violent crime, or property crime. I haven’t gotten word on what was going on here, but I think it’s [...]
