p.1 #1 · First assignment w/Getty


My first assignment was to follow Billy Hamilton with the Pensacola Blue Wahoos (minor league baseball) as he attempted to break the record for stolen bases in a season.

So, having only shot a few baseball games in my lifetime, I shot a doubleheader last Friday, a game Sat, Sun, and last night.

He finally broke the record last night.

Story with on of my shots on NY Times' website from last weekend:

LA Times with one of my images:

I'll post a blog sometime soon, need to recover from so much shooting.

That's cool, Michael. I like that they each used a different shot.

Congrats! That's pretty awesome (and hopefully garnering a decent check!). One of the downsides of shooting for a newspaper is if our images get distributed via AP or sold/shared with another paper we don't get anything extra.

Joe: Heck yeah man! This forum is the place I learned everything. When I first got in to photography, I spend all day surfing this site.
