I started photographing college football in 1995 and still do so today when I am not shooting weddings. My photographs have been displayed in many different formats and this page illustrates a sampling of some of the various usages of my photos.
This photo shows a banner of Pitt defensive back Avonte Maddox that is hung from Heinz Field for the 2017 season.
In 2016 I took the photo of Maddox that was used for this banner.
That is me standing up and taking a photo of Pitt's Devin Street catching a touchdown pass against Notre Dame in 2013.
Below is the photo that I took of the Devin Street touchdown.
Some of the places where my football photos have been featured are as follows:
#1 Purdue University Football Vault book
10-28-2000 Seth Morales
Perhaps the most famous play in Purdue Football history happened on October 28, 2000 when Drew Brees threw a 64-yard touchdown pass to Seth Morales in the waning moments of the game to defeat Ohio State 31-27. I was fortunate enough to capture the exact moment when Morales caught the football and since that time my photograph has been used to document the play that allowed Purdue to go to the Rose Bowl.
#2 Advertisement for the Jim Tressel show.
This photo of Ohio State Head Coach Jim Tressel was taken on October 06, 2007 and it was featured for an advertisement of "The Coach's TV Show as well as in Ohio State programs and media guides.
