Nick Senior Pictures

Spent a great afternoon and evening with Nick, and his girl Molly, doing Senior Pictures.

Moline vs UTHS Homecoming Game

edgeLots of excitement at Moline’s Homecoming game Friday night. It was an exciting, up and down, drawn out, hard fought football game against UTHS. And it was so much more … what a great day of celebration:
See my photos for shots of:
I hope you like them.

Moline Homecoming Parade

edgeI guess I must be getting old when I know as many of the drivers in the parade as I do the kids …
Moline had their Homecoming Parade this afternoon and the whole town came out. Here are a few photos.

2013 Quad Cities Marathon

edgeI had the opportunity to shoot the Quad City Marathon again this year. It was a blast! The theme that I’d say was predominant this year was “EMOTIONAL”! I spent a lot of time at the finish line shooting finishers. The Relay Teams were excited and full of energy. The marathoners were different. A number came in completely spent and exhausted. Some had some left and had a kick to the end. The thing that got to me the most was the emotion of the first time marathoners when they came across the finish line. After all, they’ve been training for this moment for most of a year and a number of them just broke down. It was really touching and I really felt proud for every one of them. It’s so great to be close to the action. I tried to capture a little of it in photos.

Moline vs Alleman Football

edgeIt was a beautiful night in Augustana’s new stadium as Moline took on Alleman. Or should I say Alleman took it to Moline? I did get a few photos … check ‘em out.

Glow Run

edgeSeems like we’re coming up with all kinds of excuses to party. Here’s another one. The “Glow Run” in downtown Moline. The race started fairly informally with three waves of runners. Wave 1 - “Runners”. Wave 2 - “Walkers”, and Wave 3 - “Partiers”. I was surprised that anyone started in wave 1 or 2 since they all seemed to be “Partiers”. Check out a few photos of the evening.

Moline Football


Moline High School Football! This is one of the few moments of celebration from Friday's game as the Maroon's just recovered a fumble. I uploaded a ton of photos. Enjoy!

MHS Booster Program

edgeIt’s fall, the nights are starting to get cool, and it’s time for Moline High School Sports! This year I had the privilege of designing the cover for the Booster’s Sports Program. Hope you like it.

I plan to get out to a number of games again this year. Come back here to see photos of your favorite Moline High School stars.

And … the committee was generous enough to publish an advertisement for me in the program.

See you at the game … I’ll be the one with the big camera ;-)

SHCC Cardboard Regatta

edgeWhat a fun Labor Day Weekend at Short Hills Country Club!!!

The annual SHCC Cardboard Regatta was another happening and we all had a blast. Enjoy some of the moments of the day.
