I am a freelance sports photographer based in the San Francisco Bay Area where I regularly shoot assignments for Sports Illustrated and Major League Baseball Photos. My work keeps me busy from the first pitch of Spring Training to the final out of the World Series. When not shooting, I enjoy attending San Francisco Giants games in my season ticket box seats and working on SportsShooter.com, the online resource for sports photography, of which I am a founding owner.

My first book was recently published about the 2010 San Francisco Giants world championship season. “Worth The Wait” is a 128-page hard cover coffee table picture book.

Speaking at workshops and colleges is one of my favorite activities and I have had the pleasure of giving lectures at The National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum, Western Kentucky University, The Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, The Apple Store San Francisco, The Atlanta Photojournalism Seminar, The Sports Shooter Luau, Rich Clarkson’s Sports Photography Workshop, The San Francisco Bay Area Press Photographers Photo Night, ASMP, Brooks Institute, San Jose State University, University of Nevada, and Stanford University.

In 2011 I served as a judge for the NPPA’s Best of Photojournalism contest, and in 2008 I judged the 64th Pictures of the Year International photo contest in Columbia, Missouri.

Since becoming a full-time freelance photographer in 1993, I have photographed everything from the 1996 Summer Olympic Games in Atlanta to the St. Louis Cardinals World Series win in St. Louis, Missouri in 2011. In between, I have covered a number of Super Bowls, All Star games and playoff games all over the United States.

During the off season I enjoy traveling to the Texas Hill Country to sample the incredible barbecue with local photographers.
