    PUNK ROCK BOWLING 2018 — REDLIGHTS + REDEYES

  • expired at the kentucky derby | Redlights and Redeyes

    expired at the kentucky derby My goal, now – albeit pretty lofty – is to spend the next year trying to shoot every major sport’s biggest game with expired film. I’ve been buying lots of film off eBay, friends have been sending it to me (hint), and now I’ve accumulated rolls in varying speeds and […]

  • expired at the daytona 500 | Redlights and Redeyes

    expired at the daytona 500 This was an awesome experience to approach a shoot with a different process – and that art-making process gets lost in the craziness of this business. Getting imagery out to the world in the matter of seconds just because we can seems to have taken over the fun and thought […]

  • auto focus | the player’s tribune | Redlights and Redeyes

    auto focus I’ve never shot IndyCar before this shoot for the fine folks at The Player’s Tribune, but what I learned in a couple days of running around the Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg reaffirmed everything I thought it would be from covering other racing:  it’s extremely loud, painfully hot, but so much fun […]

    A Look Back: 4 of PhotoShelter’s Longest Standing Members Reflect on the Industry These photographers, including Chip Litherland, Brad Mangin and Ami Vitale are continuing to amaze us, churning out fantastic work and staying on top of their game.

  • broncos + chiefs | one day + one game

    Link: broncos + chiefs | one day + one game | espn the mag | Redlights and Redeyes I don’t know how I drew the long straw on these series of gigs, but I’m happy I did.  This is my third One Day One Game for ESPN the Magazine and every time it’s a complete […]

  • leica en méxico

    Link: leica en méxico | Redlights and Redeyes Color is what drives me and how I see.  It’s the first thing I look for when breaking down a scene, and the last thing that stands in the way of a good photo.  Without it, you’re in black-and-white-land, and as much I love BW photography, there’s […]

    Link: color and composition | leica x2 workshop | miami, florida | Redlights and Redeyes the X2 is what I carry around now when I’m not working.  This thing is just plain fun to use.

  • a week with wolverines | espn the mag

    Link: a week with wolverines | espn the mag | Redlights and Redeyes I love gigs for this client.  ESPN the Magazine sent me to follow around the University of Michigan Wolverines for a week as they entered a tough stretch of games in the BIG 10.  I travelled with the team on their plane […]

  • go irish and/or roll tide

    Link: go irish and/or roll tide | Redlights and Redeyes  I sat there after the first half with Alabama up several touchdowns up on Notre Dame and ate a terrible hot dog in a media room where all the photographers just looked depressed.  All of the excitement, the adrenaline, and preparedness was sucked right out […]

  • lebron, wade, and i

    Link: Redlights and Redeyes So LeBron James, Dwayne Wade, and I were there together hanging out and….well, there really isn’t going to be a time I get to say that again, so I’m going to take advantage now. I was lucky enough to be part of the huge team that the fine folks at ESPN […]

  • From Photojournalist to Wedding Photographer: Video with Chip Litherland

    Link: PhotoShelter Our live webinar with editorial photojournalist and wedding photographer Chip Litherland was a huge success – nearly 1,000 photographers came out to learn how Chip made the move from taking photojournalism assignments to building a successful wedding photography business. After 10 years in the business, and now shooting 20-25 weddings per year, Chip had […]

  • I-4 or bust

    Link: Redlights and Redeyes I-4 is an interesting road.  Connecting Daytona, Orlando and Tampa, it slices the nub of South Florida right off the map, it provides a vast array of landmarks – strange kitschy theme parks, vasectomy billboards, and rest stop oasis after oasis.  It is also fertile ground for voters and an area […]

    Redlights and Redeyes If I walk away with the same pictures I’ve made before I feel like a complete failure.

  • black and white friday

    Redlights and Redeyes I need an intervention.  I went to land of red – Super Target – and converted everything to black-and-white.  I must be in a post-turkey, up all night haze.

  • legoland florida (aka primary color heaven)

    Redlights and Redeyes: My main objective is to make compelling imagery that tells the story…sound familiar?  I’m just telling it from a different point-of-view, ironically ending up on the same pages where my photojournalism used to appear.
