Well, I wrapped my ninth year working for HBO on the boxing beat, and they put together a nice little gallery of some of my work from 2015, along with my comments on each of the images. Here’s to a great 10th year with HBO in 2016!!
Shot the New Jersey Devils win over the Ottawa Senators last night at the Prudential Center, and much like my golf game, I hacked it around all night. Devils touted rookie Reid Boucher scored his 1st NHL goal and I was on the wrong end of the ice. In the second, I left my spot with a couple minutes left to move some images and get set to run upstairs for the third and 30 seconds after I left Damien Brunner scored a goal…it was that kind of night.

It’s a pretty wild sport to cover, a mixture of soccer, Australian rules football and basketball, while the setting inside Gaelic Park is more the atmosphere of a tailgate than a sporting event with grills creating smoke and smells that linger over the field, a lot of Irish folk with beer and elevated train cars.

Well the NHL and the players finally came to their collective senses and got back on the ice this past weekend, and thankfully sent many of us back to work on a regular basis! I was getting a bit restless sitting around and trying to fill time with other work. While my family is happy with the newly painted kid’s room, Kitchen and dining room, I was missing the time behind my camera. So this season I’m back on the New Jersey Devils beat again, and it got off to a pretty good start Tuesday night with home game #1. Continue reading NHL: Ahhh…Back to Work→
