ESPN sent me out to New Jersey a few weeks ago to shoot portraits of some really interesting chaps, all of whom are 89 yrs old or older. The common bond between these gentlemen is that they all were coached by Vince Lombardi in high school or college, before he went to Green Bay. These guys were awesome and I hope we are all so lucky to be this lively in our 90s. 

The story, plus videos, which are great, can be found here:



Big up to Sean Hintz for the assignment! 


On a recent vacation to the Redneck Riviera I visited an alligator farm. (To the uninformed the “Redneck Riviera” is the stretch of beach along the Alabama coast extending through the Florida panhandle. Despite it’s name it has some of the most beautiful beaches in the US. It adopted it’s name during the MTV/Panama City days when it was pretty rough.) These were taken with my new snappy camera. Haven’t purchased a point and shoot camera in at least 5 years due to the fact that I kept losing them. Now, older and wiser, I thought it was time to put away the iPhone and step it up a notch. Now the problem is these little cameras’ file sizes are so large it just means that I have to buy more hard drive space. When does it ever stop?
