Update….

It’s been awhile since I posted a real blog and not just an automatic post from my Instagram feed. So today I figured I would give an update to what I have been doing the past few months.

Since stepping away from USA Today Sports Images and not covering sports since the NFC Championship between the Packers and Seahawks, I have been focusing on commercial photography and videography. FullSizeRender

In the mid 2000’s I used to mess with video a lot while traveling to motorsports events around the west coast. But after a few years of that, I focussed mainly on still photography which got me to where I am today.

As many of you know, companies have really started to lean towards video content for their websites, email blasts and social media channels. So to keep up with the times, I have been dipping my feet (a lot) back into the video word filming, producing and editing product videos. Boy have things changed, but its starting to come back to me very slowly.

Below are a couple recent videos produced for ARB 4×4 Accessories in Seattle, WA

I have always been an Apple computer guy (never owned a PC in my life) and used to work with Final Cut Pro back when I was working with video. Of course now that video is back in my life, I am working and learning Final Cut Pro all over again.

So to summarize what’s going on with me currently, I have been doing some commercial photography and a lot of commercial video work. But….. I am happy to say that I have recently signed on with Panini America, Inc and will be photographing a few of the Seattle Seahawks home games this season. I am really looking forward to catching up with fellow photographers once again on the field for my 5th years of photographing the team.

November 12, 2012 – WWII Veteran Fighter Pilot Joe Moser Honored by the Seattle Seahawks

Yesterday (Nov 11th) was Veterans Day and the NFL honored veterans all around America. The Seattle Seahawks did so by honoring local decorated WWII veteran fighter pilot Joe Moser.

During the war, Joe piloted piloted one of the most advanced fighter planes of the time, the P-38. Unfortunately he was shot down over France and along with 167 other allied flyers was sent to the Buchenwald Concentration Camp. (Read more about Joe at the “Joe Moser Story” official website joemoserstory.com)

Just prior to the kickoff, Joe raised the 12th Man flag. Here are a few of my favorite images that I captured of this moving moment.
