Anti-Trump Rally in Denver

DENVER, CO – JULY 1: Pro-Trump supporter Greg, no last name given, uses a sign to block out a protestors megaphone during an Anti-Trump rally at the corner of 14th and California in Denver, Colorado on July 1, 2016. (Photo by Seth McConnell/The Denver Post)

Presumptive Republican Presidential nominee Donald Trump made a stop in Denver on Friday. As has been the case across the country, his presence drew a large crowd of protestors both for and against the New York business man. Thanks for looking.

Photos: RugbyTown 7s

leave a comment »

Over the last three years, I’ve been covering rugby as the official team photographer of the Glendale Raptors Rugby Club in the suburbs of Denver. Its been a rather fun and rewarding experience that has gotten me into a different mind-set and given me an opportunity to do something different and fun. Every August the club hosts the Serevi RugbyTown 7’s tournament which brings in teams from all over the country and several countries to play the speedy version of rugby.

Thanks for looking

Looking West.

_2SM2478It’s never fun when it feels like your best is not good enough. Aiming at that patch of sunshine and blue sky and hoping for the best. Not sure what the future holds but I’m excited at the possibilities and the multitude of options at the moment. More on that later.

I went home in July. Hung out, lit stuff on fire and got engaged. A few photos from the edge of the west.

Thanks for looking.

“You can shoot the entire show, from the pit.” That phrase is not uttered very often at large venues, in fact it’s so rare that I often do a double take and ask for it to be repeated to make sure I heard them right. It’s exciting to hear, especially when its a fairly theatrical band and the light should awesome.

Less than two minutes into the bands set it was easy to see why they let you shoot the entire show… The light was terrible, mainly back-lit, with very faint accents of light coming from the front of the stage. I’m a big fan of using the light in whatever way it comes. Its hard when nearly every shot becomes a silhouette. It’s all a part of the challenge but it was nice to be able to have 75 minutes to work through the lights and make a few interesting frames.

The full gallery of images can be found HERE.

Looking Back 2013

with 2 comments

I was terrible at blogging in 2013. In fact it was the least I’ve blogged since I started blogging back in the late 90’s. I sat down and posted eight times last year… eight times. I don’t know how many blogs I sat down and started writing but never completed. Pathetic. As shown by this blog, which is 11 days past the end of 2013. Gross.

It’s not that I didn’t have anything to blog about either. It was a pretty cool 12 months. A very, very busy 12 months. I got to experience and document some firsts. Met some cool people, attended far to many shows (or not enough depending on who you ask) and even made it to Lollapalooza in Chicago. It was pretty amazing across the board. Yet I didn’t sit down and write about any of it. I should have and that is officially one of my goals for 2014. Blog and blog a lot. Also maybe finally complete a new website so I can officially push forward with some long-term goals this year.

I hate the phrase, “best of.” It just rubs me the wrong way. These are a few of my favorite images from the last year. (My co-shooter on the YourHub side, Anya, and I put together a small slide show of our favorite images from 2013 which you can view HERE. I will post a more in depth look at the music stuff I shot this in another post that will go up tomorrow.) Thanks for looking.Denver Comic Con

Bring In The Clowns

Clowns…

From the conversations I’ve had since starting this project, it seems that most people dislike them. I can’t say I’ve ever been the biggest fan but after spending the last month going to clown class, I can say the group from the Colorado Clowns are some of the nicest people I’ve met in a long time.

Despite the final product, I would have to say this was one of the more difficult things I’ve shot. The light wasn’t great. Fluorescent light is not a photographers friend. The moments were not coming together. To say it was a challenge is an understatement. I almost gave up after the first week. Week two didn’t yield many more photos. Week three we had a blizzard, class was cancelled and I spent the day at DIA making photos of stranded travelers. The pay off came this past weekend, during the last class before graduation. Both students, teachers and alumni came in full clown. For the first time it really felt like a clown class. The light was a little more effective and everything just felt like it came together.

It was a great lesson in patience and sticking with a story through the end.

Wrap it up

One of my goals for the year was to blog more. We are 5 weeks into 2013 and I really haven’t blogged. So I’m going to push to blog at least once a week, posting images from my assignments the week before.

This is a good week to start as I had an incredibly busy week last week.

Some weeks, no matter now much you plan, nothing seems to go right. This past week was a prime example of this. I had planned my week so I would have a light day on Friday and be well rested for a visit from my parents over the weekend. Unfortunately my co-shooter on the YourHub side got the flu and my well planned week went into the trash on Wednesday. It happens and being flexible is a big part of this job. Thankfully I had set up my schedule the way I did and was able to “easily” absorb another 5 assignments. -There is nothing easy about absorbing assignments late in the week but I got it done-

Thankfully most of the assignments were full of opportunities to make good images. Plus I got the opportunity to make photos of one of my favorite bands of all time on Sunday. Love me some Hot Water Music.
