The Athletes of Emery/Weiner

Last year I photographed a bunch of athletes at the Emery/Weiner school here in Houston. These smiling/game-faced teens are now on banners hanging outside of the school's new stadium. Home of most of the outdoor sports and the defending state champion 6-man football team. Big shout to the Jags!


Houston Texans Training Camp 2016

Football back! But before football was all the way back, I spent some time in late July, early August with the Houston Texans at their annual training camp for Houston Press. Some of the players were returning stars, and others were trying to make the team. But there were a few newly acquired players with high expectations *cough* Brock *cough* Lamar *cough*.

It was hot, there was a lot of waiting around and did I mention that it was hot? The Texans are off to a 1-0 start after beating the Chicago Bears yesterday. So it looks like training camp paid off. Or is that not how this works? Big shout and good luck to the Bulls on Parade. Check out the gallery HERE!


3rd Annual Kick & Roll Classic

The third edition of the annual Kick & Roll Classic has come and gone and was bigger and better than the two previous years. The sneakers were dope, the hoops were competitive and lots of money was raised for the Kiel Colon Cancer Foundation. Big shout to George and LaTashia Kiel for organizing this thing and bringing it to life once again. Until next year...


Simone Biles for ESPN the Magazine and The Undefeated

The 2016 Olympics in Rio has been an incredible show of talent by many athletes but I'm partial to one in particular...for a couple of reasons. The first reason is, #HTown. And the second is I had the great opportunity to photograph the 3-time world champion and 5 time Olympic medalist (4 of them gold), Simone Biles. I spent 3 days in May photographing her along with an ESPN crew doing an E:60 piece about her family life and her rise in the world of gymnastics.

I'm sure you've heard it before or can glean some of her personality via television but the way she talks, you wouldn't know that she is the best gymnast in the world or perhaps the greatest of all time. She's just outchea doing her. All 4 feet 9 inches of her effortlessly completing some of the most difficult routines en route to multiple championships and medals.

Big shout, Simone! Congratulations on a remarkable run in Rio. Check out more images HERE!
