April 2020:

Quarantine: great time to edit and upload photos . . .

Except when your subscription to editing software has expired and you don't have a spare $600 to re-up your annual subscription to Adobe.  Really miss when you could just buy a program once and be done with it.

Also not a great time for your MacBook to be on its deathbed.  I mean, it's a 2013 MBP, and I've pushed it for years now, but timing is just rough.

Some people have asked how to support my work, so I added donation and payment options above. Thank you!


Why aren't any photos available to be purchased anymore?   

Short Answer: I downgraded my "plan" for the website.

Longer Answer: I am not allowed to sell any photos from the IHSA State Series events.  So, I had two options on how the site handles buying/selling photos:
Plan 1:  Basically, it's all or nothing.  Everything is for sale, or nothing is, through the site.
Plan 2: I can pick and choose which galleries and albums can be purchased from, and which cannot.  (This is the option that I used to have)

Clearly, Option 2 is a better choice!  But Option 2 also costs more money, out of pocket.
I never made much from this site, so most of that money went to paying for Plan 2 instead of Plan 1.
So, I made the choice to drop down to Plan 1.  Since it's "everything can be bought, or nothing can be," and I'm not allowed to directly sell IHSA photos (or no media pass for me in the future), I removed the option to buy directly from the website.  

If you wish to purchase photos, contact me directly.  Let me know who, what event(s), and we can go from there.

Not easy, but it's the way it has to be for now.


December 2019

I've been fortunate enough to be given opportunities to shoot photos at my other passion in life aside from sports - music festivals and concerts!

However, due to contractual agreements, the bulk of the photos are not publicly available for now.
BUT: If you've been sent my way and would like a sample of some of the work, I have a private link I can send with some access to a growing portfolio - something I would be more than happy to do!


General Information

Policy Change: Moving forward, you need to contact me with any photos you wish to purchase.  Costs vary depending on what the event was, how many, individual vs. full gallery, and why you're buying.  Again, contact me directly using the icon on the sidebar.

WRESTLING PHOTOS:
Essentially, all photos that I have taken are now uploaded to the website, with some limitations.

A lot of photos - particularly TEAM SPECIFIC photos - will require a link to access that can only be given by me.  Click that contact button if you're interested in purchasing photos and let me know what you're looking for - I've gone through tens of thousands of photos, you haven't, and you don't want to.  I can be a time saver.  I will list, below, what HS events I do have photos of.
