Behind the scenes at work, teaching and enjoying this profession

At the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio

One of my students at the USC Photojournalism Workshop caught me getting in a quick power nap during their coverage of the Carolina Cup in Camden, South Carolina in April 2022.

Stalking Clemson’s head football coach Dabo Swinney after his team beat Alabama at the 2019 CFP National Championship in Santa Clarita, California.

While out covering the lead up to the 2008 Summer Olympic Games in Beijing people kept coming up wanting their picture taken with me. Because I’m 6 foot 5 some thought I was an NBA player.

Me with the one and only James Brown in Columbia, South Carolina back in the summer of 1995.

Covering ski jumping at the 2018 Winter Olympic Games in PyeongChang, South Korea.
