For nearly 20 years this was my workhorse for product, travel & landscape images…
Kodachrome 25 in one body, Ilford 50 Black & White in the other! 
Purchased in the early 1980’s, I hauled this baby everywhere.
Amazing that this classic gear has survived and works today!

The 2015 Gonzaga Basketball Front Court?

The season starts next week… is anyone else pumped to see these 3 on the court together?
The press this week says we will… 
 
from Scott Gleeson of USA TODAY Sports October 27, 2015
Behind elite Front Court, Gonzaga eyes national title
“Wiltjer returns alongside blossoming sophomore Domantas Sabonis (9.7 points, 7.1 rebounds a game) and 7-footer Przemek Karnowski (10.9 points, 5.8 rebounds). Few expects to play all three bigs on the court at the same time in spurts, with Wiltjer playing small forward. Together, they form one of the best front courts in the country.”
http://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/ncaab/2015/10/27/gonzaga-best-frontcourt-kyle-wiltjer-domantas-sabonis-mark-few/74664292/

from NBC Sports By Rob Dauster Oct 28, 2015
Ranking College Basketball’s Top Front Courts
“1. Gonzaga (Kyle Wiltjer, Przemek Karnowski, Domantas Sabonis)
The Zags ended up winning out on this list for the simple fact that there isn’t another program in the country with three big men that are as good as this trio.”

Tijuana Bullring Fiesta

Tijauna, Baja California, Mexico

Tijauna, Baja California, Mexico

A celebration at the “Toreo de Tijuana”… cultural spirit at its best.
Cervesa, tasty Tacos and the wonderful folk music of the Mariachis are gathered in this image!
During the Bullfight I was committed to cover the pageantry of Mexico’s rich history.
I climbed to the top of the Bullring to capture an overview of the event…
Just before descending back down, I happened to peer outside over the edge of the ring
to see this wonderful Fiesta in progress straight below me!

Captured in 1986 on Kodachrome 25, Nikon F3, Nikkor 50mm 1.4

Gonzaga University’s Kraziness in the Kennel 2015

It’s the first introduction of the men’s team with an exhibition game.
Did mention I’m an avid fan?
This event will get you pumped!
There’s so much energy… 
the house is packed, the rowdy Kennel Club Student Section is joined by the Band
in a roof raising collaboration of cheer & song.
 
smack talk alert :-)
Coming off an incredible season last year, 
the Zags bring another fantastic roster to the floor…
there is lots of talk about some unfinished business to take care of this year???

Most of this shoot was with the Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM Lens.
There’s a few iPhone 5s photos in the gallery as well!
