The Boys of Fall

Bright and early on Saturday morning I cranked up the old van and headed over to Bishop Kenny to shoot team and individual photos. By the weather you would not know it was time for The Boys of Fall to be out in full pads smacking each other around on the gridiron. But, we live in Florida – it’s hot. The temps were already in the mid 80’s and the humidity was swamp-like on this late August morning. [Read more…]

Miss BK 2010

Six contestants took to the stage of the Bishop Kenny cafeteria in the 20th annual Miss BK pageant competition. The house was packed as the contestants performed their talents and modeled casual and formal wear for the judges. In this Hollywood themed evening, the girls shared their dance and musical talents for a very enthusiastic crowd.

In addition to the contestants for this year, the Miss BK contestants ¬†from 2009 choreographed the opening routine, emcee’d portions of the show and performed for the audience. A good evening was enjoyed by all.

June 22, 2009 Flying Fish Team Photo

Today was a visit over to the Fort Caroline Club, home of the Flying Fish Swim Team. The team came up with a great idea to get as many members of the team there as possible and that was to throw a pizza party for the swimmers that made the team and individual photo session. They had a great turnout as most of the team was there. We took lots of individual photos too. It was a fun afternoon. Check out the samples below.

June 9th, 2009 USA All the Way!

University Swim Association

Today was a team and individual shoot day for a local summer swim team in the River City Swim League, the University Swim Association Stingrays. Team photo day is always a blast because I get to meet lots of new folks and get reaquainted with some old friends. This was the team that my kids swam on for many summers and I volunteered for as a timekeeper, starter and photographer. Time flies as now my oldest daughter coaches the team and is having a great time sharing her knowledge and motivating another generation of swimmers. Fun stuff. USA fans you may preview your photos here.

June 1, 2009 – North Florida Notre Dame Club

On Monday June 1st, I was privileged to be invited by the North Florida Notre Dame Club to photograph their dinner celebrating UND Night with the Fighting Irish’s own head ball coach, Charlie Weis. The club was honored to host Coach Weis in recognition of their status as an outstanding C Club by the Notre Dame Alumni Association. Coach provided insights into how the team prepares for the season from the start of spring practice until the season gets underway and responded to questions from the audience.It was a fine evening with a silent auction and the raffling of tickets to the USC game with the proceeds going to area charities that the club supports.
