NFL: Hall of Fame Game-New York Giants vs Buffalo Bills


The NFL is finally back! The New York Giants and Buffalo Bills had their first preseason game in Canton, Ohio. Preseason is  interesting as most of the veteran starters only play for a quarter, allowing for rookies and other guys trying to make the team get playing time.

Eli Manning and EJ Manuel only played for the first quarter but it was enough for the Giants to score their first touchdown.

NCAA Football: Big Ten Championship-Michigan State vs Ohio State


Following the MAC Championship in Detroit, I headed over to Indianapolis for the Big 10 Championship between the #2 ranked Ohio State Buckeyes and Michigan State Spartans.

They wanted to show the entire country they deserved to be in Indy.

The game was loud and full of intensity which made for some awesome photos! Enjoy!

Another post from a hot air balloon, friend Jake Tyler recently got a new balloon so my self and my fiancé Stacy went for a ride Saturday morning. I am usually a fan of doing aerial photography around sunset but during sunrise gave me a whole new appreciation for early morning photos!

This is from Stacy (someone who hates flying)

“If you’ve ever been hesitant about going up in a hot air balloon, you shouldn’t be worried! It’s nothing like you think it is ! So smooth, you feel like your floating, and you never feel like your descending! It’s amazing!”

Enjoy the photos!


The LPGA Marathon Classic was back in Toledo after taking a year off so Toledo could have the US Senior Open. In the years past it was called the Jamie Farr Classic and this year it took on a new name and new sponsor. I have always had a love hate relationship for shooting golf. It makes for some really nice clean photos but it kicks your butt hauling gear around all over the course. Here are some of my favorite images from the week.

My final top on the NHRA tour was in Norwalk, Ohio. It’s one of my favorite tracks due to it being only 40 minutes away from my house. It also has a great fan experience allowing great access to the pits and nice grandstands. In Norwalk, top fuel dragster driver Khalid Albalooshi and funny car driver Johnny Gray brought home their first Wally of the season!

Please enjoy the rest of the photos.

I have recently being doing a lot of work for Metroparks Toledo Area, shooting features of different parks, capturing programs that aren’t very well known for promotional purposes. I get to see the behind the scenes of how the Metroparks are run on a day to day basis by staff and volunteers.

A couple of times a month the Metroparks hold a photography workshop; all the public a chance to get up close and personal with nature animals.
