I’m not really sure how relevant blogs are these days with social media outlets like Instagram, but I like them for the simple fact that it allows me to share some outtakes from shoots that otherwise wouldn’t be seen. Although I’ll admit, I’ve been slacking on keeping my blog updated, ironically because I’ve been to busy shooting to do so but here are some extra photos from a shoot I recently did with 4-time Crossfit Games competitor and owner of Crossfit Mentality, Scott Panchik and his wife, Christin Panchik.
Happy New Year! I am thrilled to start the year off with a cover photo for the new January issue of Ohio Magazine! This issue features the 'Best of Ohio' and this cover shot was taken inside the newly renovated Toledo Aquarium which was showcased in the article. This was a really fun shoot that involved getting behind-the-scenes access to the big shark tank so we could place a flash to help light up the rest of the aquarium. Below is also another photo we took of the touch tank that was used for the opening spread of the article. Be sure to pick up a copy out on news stands now!

I'm really excited to finally be able to share some tear-offs from a recent ad campaign I shot for the Downtown Cleveland Alliance. These were really fun shoots that featured the owners of thriving start-up business's that currently have a downtown address here in Cleveland, Ohio. They included, Charlie Eisenstat, owner of the POUR Coffee House, Nichelle McCall, CEO of BOLD Guidance and Margie Flynn and Barbara Brown, co-founders of BrownFlynn. The print ads ran both locally and nationally in publications like, Money Magazine, Entrepreneur Magazine, Crains Cleveland Business News, Cleveland Jewish News, among many more.

Every year the DCA (Downtown Cleveland Alliance) kicks off the holiday season by hosting an event in downtown Cleveland called, Winterfest. The event is an all day holiday celebration that includes a tree-lighting ceremony, fireworks, horse and carriage rides and much, much more. Traditionally the event takes place at Public Square but this year they moved it to Playhouse Square for the first-time ever and it was huge success! I was fortunate enough to be hired to photograph the event and above are some of my favorite photos from all the festivities. Enjoy!
I recently downloaded the Dec. issue of BMX Plus! Magazine and was stoked to see an article featuring my photos of the Dew Tour stop in Portland, Oregon.

For the better part of the last decade I've been traveling around the country covering the Dew Tour series for a number of different media outlets, and for the past two years I've been fortunate enough to be shooting it for NBC (who produces the Dew Tour) as well. Most of my photos are used on the Dew Tour website itself and for their social media throughout the year. I also contribute photos to the ESPN BMX site for an online gallery and to BMX Plus! Magazine for print. Above are some tear offs from the recent issue of BMX Plus! Magazine that just published an article on the Ocean City Dew Tour stop which was the first stop of the 2014 tour. Click here to check out the gallery I also had published on ESPN.
I was recently contacted by CoverMyMeds to shoot some new head shots of their entire leadership team down in Columbus, Ohio. The main purpose of the photos is for use on their new website, which was just launched at CoverMyMeds.com. Click here to see the rest of the head shots we did. I also shot a bunch of PR shots with Co-founder and Principal, Matt Scantland. Below is one of my favorites from that series.
It's been a long road getting this new site up but I'm happy to say its finally done! It took a while mostly because I've had one heck of a busy year so far traveling and shooting assignments and haven't had a chance to sit down and dial it in. Instead of procrastinating, I've just been chipping away at it in between shoots and got it done. So here it is, please take a minute and have a look around and check out the galleries to see some of my new work. Thanks for stopping by and stay tuned right here on my blog for more soon!
