I created this website because I have loved sports of all kinds my entire life, and I love taking pictures and capturing moments in the heat of competition. This passion of mine started with pictures of my own kids but has expanded exponentially since then. As you can see from the many galleries I have created, I will shoot pictures of any sport: rowing, cross-country running, track and field, field hockey, fencing, soccer, football, and gymnastics. I am always ready to add to the list. Rowing, of course, is my greatest passion.
This site is primarily designed to benefit athletes, coaches, families, and friends. Smart phone technology is truly amazing, but as good as it is, your smart phone camera simply cannot compete with professional quality equipment and photos. We have all been to sporting events where virtually everyone is obsessively taking pictures from a distance with their smart phones. This site is meant to allow you to put the phone down, live in the moment, and let me take the pictures for you. I know you will love the pictures and will welcome the ability to focus on the event. These are championship quality photos that will far surpass anything you could take yourself with a smartphone or otherwise and because you can download them directly to your device at full resolution, you will be able to easily print or post them on your favorite social media platform.
Many people have asked me why I "give away" professional quality photos at no charge. The answer is simple: I am not in this for the money; I take sports and action pictures because I love to do it. The knowledge that athletes, coaches collegiate sport information departments, families and friends are using my photos by saving them in their own collections, posting them on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook or any other social media is compensation enough for me. The only request I have is that if you do post one of my pictures, please tag me.
Note that if you are old-school and want to purchase prints (framed or otherwise) of any of the photos you can do that on this site for a price through SmugMug but you will only be paying their cost. I will collect nothing.
