Over spring break I was FINALLY able to sit down and go through my full takes of sporting events I've covered this year and edit down some of my features. Every year OU plays host to a bunch of local high school bands who get to perform alongside the Marching 110 before the game and at halftime, and seeing them all sit next to each other is a feature waiting to happen. It's really cool to see all of the different varieties of band uniforms and the different colors of those uniforms all in such a close proximity. I spent a lot of time editing down looking for features and I'll try my best to share them throughout the coming days! #ohiogram #16x9 #vscocam #vsco #athens #athensohio #pedenstadium #ohiosports #ohiobobcats #ohiouniversity #nightphotography #nikond4s #marchingband

On Sunday night I noticed how beautiful the moon was as it cast light over Athens, so I went up to the top of the parking garage on Washington and snapped a few pics. I was only up there for a few minutes because of how cold it was, but I still took time to take in the beautiful sight in front of me. Whenever I go home I always tell people that Athens is the quintessential college town, and thanks to it being in Appalachia the nature and sights surrounding it are unparalleled. Don't make me ever leave this place. #ohiouniversity #athens #athensohio #appalachia #nightphotography #canonphotography #canon1dmarkiv #senioryear #sky #vsco #vscocam #16x9 #ohiogram

Should Ohio not accept a postseason tournament invitation in the coming days, last night was my last time ever covering a Bobcat basketball game. As a diehard Cleveland fan, I gotta admit that being able to cover my last game in the Q is something I never thought I'd say. Last night's heartbreaking loss to Kent State was incredibly rough, but as I was looking through my full take from Ohio's two games in Cleveland, I can confidently say that the images I created are some of the best basketball pictures I've taken. It's been a privilege being able to cover Ohio basketball, and I've literally covered both bookends of my time at OU. The first game I covered was the season opener my freshman year, and last night I covered the last game of my senior year. Now, it's onto spring sports! #canon1dmarkiv #canonphotography #vscocam #vsco #ohiouniversity #ohiobobcats #sportsphotography #quickenloansarena #cleveland #ohiosports #16x9 #maction #mactournament

Today was an incredibly windy day here in Erie, with winds consistently around 25-30 mph but there were also occasional gusts of 50-60 miles an hour. On my way to go see @brandon_saraniti earlier I noticed that the water in the bay was crazy, so I told myself that I had to go back out there with my camera. I also went out to the lake because I wanted to capture the golden light on the houses and the waves, and even though I was freezing the whole time, it was awesome to see the sheer power of Lake Erie. Nature is neat y'all. #vsco #vscocam #lakeerie #naturephotography #eriegram #eriepa #waves #canonphotography #canon1dmarkiv #springbreak

Shot my first wrestling match in forever, but it was a lot of fun getting to shoot sports other than basketball or football. Ohio got their butts handed to them by American today, with only one Bobcat wrestler winning. While it was a disappointing loss, I'm really happy I came across with some awesome shots.

I've not posted a sports picture in forever and I feel like my Instagram aesthetic is lacking because of it, so here's a pic from the men's basketball game this past weekend! Before Saturday, the Bobcats had lost 9 of their past 12 games to Akron, but thanks to a MONSTER 38-point performance from Jaaron Simmons they came out on top 85-70.

Athens, OH has always been known as a town filled with politically-conscious citizens, so it was no surprise that a protest in defiance of the inauguration of Donald Trump occurred. Here, The Rev. Evan Young of United Campus Ministries speaks before the crowd began its march. Thankfully, it was a peaceful protest, save for a couple people yelling out their car windows at the protestors. #nikonphotography #nikond750 #athens #athensohio #ohiouniversity #protest #donaldtrump #blacklivesmatter #vsco #vscocam #16x9

Welcome to Norway (read: Pennsylvania) where the snow is everywhere and temperatures are constantly below freezing. My dad is a big cross country skiing nut, and once he found out about Skijoring (a combo of that and dog sledding) you bet he bought a set where he could take the dogs skiing. Maya is too old to skijor, but Rosa the puppy is a perfect fit. She's still getting used to it, so she's only ever skijored in the driveway. Welcome to the wild world of NW Pennsylvania. #nikonphotography #vsco #vscocam #16x9 #homefromschool #christmasbreak #winter #snow #skijoring #skiing #dogsofinstagram #fieldspaniel #sunset

Throughout the course of this past semester, I've been following around The Marching 110 for my photojournalism capstone class. As a kid, I was super into music, and even dreamed of being in a marching band when I was grew up. Unfortunately, due to academics and other athletic pursuits, I had to put music by the wayside. This project is the culmination of many weeks and months of hard work and hours upon hours of editing photos down and getting everything just right. Many thanks to everybody involved in the 110 for allowing me to come in and interview you, and experience what all you do that makes you guys better than the best ever. If you wish to read this, the link is in my bio!!! #ohiobobcats #nikonphotography #nikond750 #marching110 #ohiouniversity #athens #athensohio #vsco #vscocam #16x9 #marchingband #lights #performance

Since it's looking more and more like I won't be able to travel down to Alabama to cover Ohio's bowl game, my time covering Bobcat football has come to an end. I've throughly enjoyed every second I've spent on the sidelines, talking to the other photogs and showing off our best shots from the game. I'll miss hearing the 110 and smiling at their dances and splits, I'll miss seeing Peden awash in golden light and I'll even miss that damn cannon that goes off every time we score. To anybody lucky enough to be an OU student journalist who covers sports, enjoy it; you never know where it'll take you. Now it's time to cover basketball season and spend my last winter in the Roundhouse on Richland. #nikond750 #nikonphotography #ohiobobcats #ohiouniversity #athens #athensohio #pedenstadium #bobcatfootball #vsco #vscocam #16x9 #senioryear #clouds #collegefootball

To any of my friends at OU who don't believe me when I say that I literally live in the woods; here you go. Home for the holidays after a crazy busy fall semester, and I'm so ready to relax. Down to ONE more semester at OU! #winter #snow #home #nikonphotography #nikond750 #bluehour #christmas #trees #forest #christmaslights #homefromschool #vsco #vscocam #16x9

This past weekend I had the incredible opportunity to cover Ohio's MAC Championship game at Ford Field in Detroit. Throughout the week, most media outlets were saying 15th ranked Western Michigan would turn this game into a laugher quickly. In front of a record crowd of 45,615, Ohio put up a fight but ultimately lost 29-23 thanks to a late interception as Ohio was driving down the field to try and score the game winning touchdown. Working for @thepostvisuals has given me the opportunity to go to some pretty amazing places over the years. #vscocam #vsco #16x9 #macchampionship #fordfield #detroit #canonphotography #ohiobobcats #ohiofootball #ohiouniversity #rowtheboat #collegefootball
