The Baltimore Ravens won the Super Bowl. …and then Baltimore went friggin’ nuts! A cabby stopped in the middle of the street, blared Gangnam Style and, of course, a dance party broke out in the middle of the street. The city’s patience for things that should piss people off was turned upside down. For example, [...]
Go Ravens! …is a phrase I never thought I’d utter when I lived in Atlanta. Not that I’d be yelling Go Falcons, either. I’ve never been a football fan. Baseball all the way, baby! In fact I really hated football when I was at that young, obtuse, preteen age. But working at Patuxent for 6 [...]

Dozens of drag queens raced down 17th Street, between P and S Streets NW near DuPont Circle Tuesday October 25th, 2011. The race is 25 years old! How’s that for stick-to-it-ive-ness?

Washington Capitals forward Alexander Ovechkin is photographed for The Sporting News.
As subtle as this image is, it speaks volumes… Cyrus Kouandjio puts down his signing pen, no ink dispelled, while the rest of his DeMatha teammates sign their college commitment papers. ESPN ranks him as the third best high school player in the nation, and there’s been a buzz about who he’s committing to. He’s [...]
Last November I got the chance to make a few portraits of Baltimore Ravens’ defensive back Lardarius Webb for The Sporting News. — thanks to my good friend Jeff Furticella. As expected, I wasn’t given too too much time with Lardarius. I had 30 minutes, but I was able to make a few different looks. [...]
Why oh why do I love this picture? Everything about this shoot makes me roll my eyes. First of all, I’m breaking one of my cardinal rules! I HATE HATE HATE making portraits of people holding books, or whatever it is the writer decides the story is also about. So, I don’t do it. If [...]
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 [...]

Let me first say that David Hobby is an SEO powerhouse! When he pimps me out my analytics look like a big mountain is stuck in the middle of a desert. So, after getting hit with well over 500 page views within an hour of @strobist ‘s tweet, a few reached out, asking for a post [...]

In my most recent Spring Preview portrait post, I might have made it seem like the studio is not a fun place. but… …as you can see, if you give a hula hoop to some people and fun can’t not be had.
For last year’s Manchester Valley football preview photo illustration the football player scheduled to ride the horse in full football regalia wasn’t too used to horse riding. So… he had a stunt double fill in. I was sworn to secrecy. I wasn’t allowed to tell who the actual rider is. So… let your imaginations go [...]
