Raising Jylin

I spent a couple of hours with a John Williams, a father, football player, student, and all around great guy.

I felt well received by John and fiance and they very open to me telling their story. It's amazing to see a young man like John who is only 20 years-old take on the responsibility he has. I can not say enough kind things about him and his family. I think this is a story I will continue to work on.

An inny and an outy

Mount Pleasant head coach Jason McIntyre hugs wide receiver Ryan Heeke Saturday after defeating Cadillac, 17-7, in the Division 3 Regional Finals.

I made this frame with a wide angle lens waiting for time to expire on the clock and the celebration to begin.

There was some running, yelling and hugging, but the real moment came when the two teams lined up to shake hand and off in the distance coach McIntyre, with a smile on his face, gave Heeke a hug. McIntyre is an intense coach and when I captured this I knew it was rare moment and the moment.

As a photojournalist we spend a good portion of the time fighting the elements; terrible light, horrible weather, bad subjects, you name it we fight it.

And then some times it all comes together.

Friday Night Light


I arrived to a Friday football game 30 minutes early. It was a cold night and my jacket was still damp from shooting a cross country meet two days earlier. I started shooting features before the game to keep my mind off the cold.
