New Washington Wizards photographer for the winter

I will be the new photo intern for the Washington Wizards when they start the regular season on Halloween night.  I'll be there for every home game covering the game itself, the fans, and the general game experience.  This will be a great opportunity to flex my creative and lighting muscles.  Arenas are basically black holes of darkness with a little light shining on the action so I'll really have to push myself to get high quality photos that capture the moment.

Next time you're watching a Wizards home game look for the short white guy running around the arena with a bunch of equipment around his neck.

Chloe' and Hans Wedding

Here's a sample of the photos from Hans and Chloe's beautiful wedding last weekend in Newark.  Having photographed many ceremonies in incredibly dark churches, I was thrilled with the venue that they used for their wedding.  Big windows?  Check.  Lots of open space to move around?  Check.  Lots of colorful details?  Check.

I had submitted my baseball photo in to the 'student advertising' category and apparently someone really liked it:
