As a teenager, I brought my camera to all of the judo events that I could go to, and have continued that routine ever since. Since 2009, I have been the only accredited photographer and journalist from the United States at the World Judo Championships held in Rotterdam, Tokyo, Paris, Rio De Janeiro, and Chelyabinsk (Russia), shooting for the United States Judo Federation and for USA Judo (the USOC's National Governing Body).
That experience has enabled me to make recent forays into Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) photography at the Professional Fighters League (PFL) events in New York's Madison Square Garden and the Shogun Fights in Baltimore's Royal Farms Arena.
As an (unofficial) parent photographer I spent untold hours on the sidelines shooting my kids' soccer, lacrosse, and field hockey teams from elementary school through high school, and shot many ACC basketball games at courtside during my college days at the University of Maryland.
I am available to photograph any level of amateur or professional sports, and would enjoy speaking with parents, high school and collegiate team officials, and professional athletes and teams to determine how I can provide experienced services to your team or school.
