  Hey, It’s the middle of the summer already, so what better time to start thinking, talking, and actually going to the stadium & practice facility to begin yet another season (my 7th.) of covering Army Football…?

Thoughts on working again down at Michie Stadium for my first game of the 2011 season covering the Black Knights of Army. Football for me is similar to covering other sports at any level of competition, and is truly a game of inches. Particularly at the Division I College level. My choice of shooting positions [...]

It’s August. It’s been unbearably hot and sticky with high humidity here in the Northeast the last few weeks; so that must mean it’s time to start covering Army Football down at West Point again. Gearing up for my fifth season of coverage down at the Academy. Here’s a quick take on today’s practice… ~cg. [...]

A quick look at my take on ARMY Football practice today at the United States Military Academy in West Point, NY. 90+ degrees with extreme humidity.

HS Football Championship – The Road to Syracuse. (starts now…) 7•Nov.•09

It sometimes starts a week earlier for me. The continual over-thinking on how I’d cover a game like this past Saturday’s Section 9 Class AA Championship matchup between undefeated Monroe-Woodbury and Warwick High Schools. It was a repeat of their game a few weeks ago at Monroe-Woodbury HS, when both teams were 6-0. This time [...]

Army – Air Force Football. Nov. 1, 2008.

“Oh Doctor…!” It doesn’t get much better than this on our end. Army vs. Air Force in a battle of the two military academies here at West Point yesterday. Beautiful crisp Fall day. Two remote cameras. A 12 noon kickoff time. Actually I treated this game as more like a prep for the upcoming annual [...]


"ARMY Football, Bobby Knight & Air Force One…"

Well, it was some weekend, and I am just getting around to recapping the assignments. First of all, thanks to my colleague & fellow Vet, Scott Strine. Scott loaned me his 400mm f/2.8AF for the ARMY – Akron game down the road at West Point on Saturday. Regardless of the game’s outcome, I had a [...]


Shooting Stock. (or how I spent the Labor Day Holiday Weekend. Aug. 31 – Sept. 1, 2008.)

It was a good weekend to totally relax, get away & be away. Even though I stayed relatively close to home. Concentrated on making personal images starting out on Sunday, and into Monday along the Hudson River. I wanted to of course make something fresh for my stock photography agency, THE IMAGE WORKS. Made it [...]
