From homelessness to hometown title fight

Tears, sweat, and love. But it was mostly love that propelled Lamont Peterson to the upcoming World Championship title fight this Saturday at the Convention Center in D.C. I met the Peterson brothers Monday night and took this portrait as well as made a quick video story. Watch to my story video here or read more about their story here.

Royal Wedding: The big day

London was electric today. I cannot think of another way to say what it was like. One-million people were expected to descend on London today. However, one of my favorite parts of the whole week was the ceremony. I've been to a lot of weddings in my life and I absolutely loved their vows, readings, and words from the pulpit? I was reminded of the vows I made before God when I married my wife. Oh, and the songs from the choir were beautiful. BBC posted some of it, check out the transcript here. I admit that I teared up a little bit while I was photographing the thousands watching the wedding in Green Park which is right next door to Buckingham Palace. I focused my time on a little video story giving our readers a chance to experience the wedding through the eyes of some Americans and of course the Brits. I took one or two stills as well. What a day!

They came with face decorations with the initials of the royal couple as well as a miniature wedding cake. Some might call it a cupcake. Garrett Hubbard / USA TODAY

Courtside at March Madness: Man behind the mascot

I've had a blast covering some of March Madness and spending a few days with Mike Nuzzo, the man behind the mask of Roc, the Pittsburgh Panther's team mascot. The photo below got some nice play on the cover of the Sports section when the Erik Brady's masterfully written story ran on March 22. Sorry for the delay!

Catheryn makes some adjustments to Roc's costume during game two of the NCAA playoffs at the Verizon Center March 19, 2011. Butler beat Pittsburgh in the last moments of the game after a series of controversial calls by the referees. Garrett Hubbard/USA TODAY

I had so much fun telling this story and getting to know Mike, his mother who is the cheer coach, and some of the cheer team. Really a great group of people so dedicated to cheer, their team, and their school. Mike is a great guy, huge Pitt sports fan, dedicated, and a smart dude too. He's in the nursing program at Pitt. This guy is going places.

Did I mention that I was court-side for both games? As in kneeling on the floor. Ouch! That wood is hard on the knees for what it's worth. I need to do take a cue from my colleague at Jack Gruber at USA TODAY and bring a padded chair and earplugs. I'd be happy to share more about the how's of this story if anyone is interested. Check out my video story "Man behind the mascot" which I edited on last Monday.

The most maddening thing about this NCAA tourney has been the continuous Butler upsets and, well, of course my attempt to park anywhere near the Verizon center during the first round. I had to tip a guy $15 just to get in a garage three blocks away! But back to Butler. Who would have thought they would be in the final four?

Any predictions for a national champion? Will Butler go all the way?

Five years later: Music & Hurricane Katrina

I had the opportunity to work with a lot of talented people at my office on a large interactive project. It includes panoramas, post-storm photos overlayed with current photos, storm graphics, and videos. I contributed to the effort by telling some stories about the gulf coast and what is happening in New Orleans five years after Hurricane Katrina. Set the stage by checking out the introduction to the project here.

Here is a link to one of the stories I told. Check out street performers and musicians redefining modern Jazz like Trombone Shorty as they try to keep the New Orleans music scene thriving. Check out the video here.

Photojournalism: More than a photograph

A warm welcome for all of those who are coming to my site via Scott Kelby.

I was given a quite an opportunity to share my heart for visual storytelling and photojournalism when I was asked to be one of the weekly guest bloggers for Photoshop guru, trainer, and accomplished author Scott Kelby. I want to give a huge "thank you" to Brad Moore who works on Kelby's team for the generous invitation & honor to share anything my little heart desired about photography on such a well read blog.

For my friends, clients, and regulars, I hope you enjoy the blog post which gives a big-picture look at my thoughts on the power of relationship and the ability for photojournalism to impact lives.

Olympics 2010: Trash to treasure

Cory was fun to hang out with. His art is original and elegant. I can't wait to see where his work takes him. Fuhr's speed skater is on display at the Richmond Oval (speed skating center) for the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics.

Olympics 2010: Street performers cashing in on the Olympics

Who knew that a funny guy in green undies on a 10-foot unicycle juggling machetes could garner such a crowd--and inspire me to tell the story of the buskers. I stumbled upon this story while taking the bus to the press center a few nights ago. These street performers were a hoot and so much fun to hang out with and interview. I shot the whole story in about 75 minutes near Robson square in downtown Vancouver. Here is a direct link to my video.
