First Weeks in Muskegon. Hey! I've been here at the Muskegon Chronicle for a little over two weeks. The staff here is excellent. The photogs are talented, kind and full of inspiration. My photo editor is a great leader and mentor. I think I'm off to an okay start and I'm really looking forward to the rest of the internship. Here is some stuff--

Ice Fishing.
Feature hunting...my first time on a frozen lake. First one will run. What a sport...maybe a story or essay here?

Winter Fun.
My assignment was to find people having fun and embracing winter...since we finally got some snow (there was a snow drought for a while here). All these ran..the Muskegon Chronicle runs lots of photos!

City Wrestling Tourney
Wrestling is a blast to shoot. Shot this with strobes and pocket wizards...

Snow X Race

Weekly Jazz Night.
Low light blues...

Publisher, writer, journalist and overall Man of Books

Hat Trick!

Junior College Wrastlin!
