Gridiron 2019: The result of teamwork

We always try to one up ourselves when it comes to the highly conceptualized football preview tabs. Finishing these projects is always a display of teamwork. This year was no different. What was different was my role. I took a leadership role on the project this year. More of an artistic director so to speak. I used the opportunity to continue training one of my colleges on the complexity of lighting, framing and posing. This year’s theme was gold rush […]

2018 Gridiron football preview

It’s that time of year again. Although it may not feel like it in Florida, football season is upon us. Just like every year in Rockford, I was once again tapped to produce over the top portraits of our local high school football team. I was fortunate enough to get the help of my colleague, Michael Johnson, on this project. I guess it wasn’t really luck. I insisted on it. You see, during a planning meeting that I was not […]

Favorites from the last few months

I’ve covered a lot of services around Easter. However, this was the […]

Best of 2016

I hate this time of year. This is the time when photographers pull together their best frames from last year.

Photographers make connections with their pictures. Sometimes you make a killer frame. Sometimes the story behind making the image is better than the image itself. That is something a viewer […]

Gridiron 2014: How the shots were made

High school football season is upon us once again. While that means we get busier on Friday nights, it also means that another Rockford Register Star Gridiron season preview section is in the books. Last year, we played with fire and light. This year, we took things to new depths (pardon the pun). Since the beginning of 2014, the photo staff and sports staff has been collaborating on what to do for this year’s Gridiron section. We had an excellent idea. […]
