FrontBlocksCWe have taken 100's of thousands of images over the years. This includes rallies, news conferences, marketing images, product images, and most recently, Google Photospheres.

It is easier than ever to take a picture (or thousands). But it still hard to make great, memorable image.

We want images that put you in the moment, that engage you immediately to imagine the emotion, or circumstances of the photo. It's hard word and takes many years of practice beyond mastering the technical requirements.

Below are some of my favorite images from the last few years. Click on the images for the full resolution versions.

I encourage you to download and enjoy these for personal use. Commercial use and reproduction for sale or inclusion in photo sets or publications is specifically prohibited without licensing. Please contact me if you would like to use one of my images.
