On The hunt

Look at this character. This is a news man on the hunt for a lasting image. Ex-Daily Progress now Roanoke Times photographer Matt Gentry had no idea he'd walked into one of my shots at the end of the game on Saturday. Anyone who knows him knows he's a great guy. See you next year Matt.

One Last Look

Before walking into the tunnel, Virginia Tech quarterback Sean Glennon took a moment to look back at the field after the 33-21 win over Virginia. It was a moment I would have taken had I been in his shoes. Despite the outcome, I thought it was a good game for Virginia.

I've come to really enjoy photographing the annual Blessing of the Hounds at Grace Episcopal Church in Keswick, VA. Maybe it's the thrill of the hunt or maybe it's the fact that it's become a tradition for me. Here are a few extra images from the event with a surprise celebrity guest.

A Different View

These are a series of images taken from a remote-floor camera during last night’s UVa vs Drexel basketball game. It's interesting because as UVa's Sammy Zeglinski slides out of bounds, he has the same view of the action as the photographers. Luckily, he stopped before running into the camera.-Andrew Shurtleff

Despite the extremely cold weather, the UVa women's soccer team routed Loyola 4-1during the 1st round of the NCAA tourney at Klockner Stadium Friday night. Here's an image of the 1st goal of the night by Virginia's Nikki Krzysik that failed to make it in the paper.

Crozet Light

In the midst of my crazy Election Day coverage there was a fire in the old pool house at Claudius Crozet Park. The fire was out when we arrived but the afternoon light to me shooting 200 images of firefighter and there shadows. This image was buried on A9 in the front section.

Lauren's Escape

On Election Day (Nov 6) I traveled over 150 miles through 3 counties and a lot of back roads. The fall colors were amazing and election coverage was filled with wonderfully emotional images. In spite of this, my favorite image of the day was found on a side street Scottsville.
