    Awesome photo's wack. I like them all especially the first one with the lone camera.

    BTW: Did you by any chance shoot the classic in SC this year on lake Hartwell? I didn't get to see it this year and would have really liked to since Alton Jones won it.

    Thanks for all the kind words from everybody.

    Yes I did shoot this years Classic, and Alton will be/is, a great ambassador for the sport. Great human being, great fisherman.

    Greenville was a great site to visit and have the Classic...everybody really enjoyed the city and the area.

    I actually had a little fun with his trophy and brought it back from SC for the studio shoot:

    Here's the 'champions gallery' group of photos I took during the final moments at this years Classic.

    Thanks wack I really like the one's with his family and the last one where he's waving his hat. I believe I would have hired the secret service to guard me with that trophy.

    BTW: Are the cocoa krispies really that good.;)

    I'll bet NASA would like to use that one for a postcard or in a calendar. Great shots.

    Wack -

    I don't comment often on others' work. But I feel compelled to this time. Also thanks for posting the links to your work with ESPN. I feel like I know you a bit better after going through them. A funny guy as well as a heck of a photographer eh? Thanks again for sharing such outstanding stuff!
