In the News

I had some fun assignments in the last couple of weeks–some of which I will have to wait to showcase until they are published. However, I recently shot some portraits of a Georgia legislator who is now running for the Attorney General’s office as well as some attorneys who have opened up a new office in Atlanta. I also recently photographed some features on two churches in Dallas, GA for the AJC. It was certainly a long ride out to Dallas from metro Atlanta, but that gave me a chance to catch up on some great podcasts!

LAWYERS AND JUDGES

The Daily Report, which is a legal and business publication I used to work for full-time, is a place that I regularly enjoy freelancing for now. Here are a few recent shots I did for them.

CROSS-ICE JAMBOREE

The Thrashers hosted their second annual Cross-Ice Jamboree at Philips Arena recently. The event gives youth hockey players who participated in the 2008-2009 Atlanta Thrashers Cross Ice Program a chance to take to the big ice at Philips. It is a ton of fun to watch these kids, some as young as four, have a blast out on the ice. Two large groups of kids were able to participate in various drills and games.

READ TO ACHIEVE

Read to Achieve is a year round program sponsored by the NBA that encourages a love of reading in children. Players and coaches from the Atlanta Hawks, as well as former players participate in various reading and book donation events throughout the city. A recent such event featured a donation of 10,000 books by the Atlanta Hawks to the Atlanta Union Mission’s My Sister’s House in Atlanta. 

The Atlanta Union Mission offers an invaluable service to women and children, providing both temporary shelter services, as well as long term treatment and rehabiliation support.

The young kids at the shelter were thrilled to have some great former Hawks players come by to spend time with them and read a few books in the process.

BASKETBALL COACHES CLINIC

I had a great time shooting one of the Atlanta Hawks recent special events. The Hawks offer a special basketball coaches clinic to any coach hoping to brush up on their skills from some of the best in the business. The wide array of coaches had a blast touring the Hawks facilities–everything from their locker rooms to the practice court. They were also given special coaching tips from the Hawks assistant coach Jim Todd.
