Growing up a boxing fan, getting an assignment to photograph Sugar Ray Leonard was a dream come true. I was honored to be selected to shoot this cover for Athlon Sports. Ray was a true pro to work with and as expected, a complete gentleman.
I am pleased to share the new cover for NBA Live15. Last year we photographed Kyrie Irving in Cleveland and this year we were off to EA Sports in Canada where we photographed rookie sensation, Damian Lillard.
Just prior to Kris Bryant being picked as Major League Baseball's #2 pick by The Cubs, we had the chance to catch up with him for a portrait at USD during his final days as a Torero.
It was an honor to photograph Kyrie Irving for the new NBA Live 14 cover for EA Sports. The shoot took place in Cleveland, Ohio. This image was part of a series for the new Xbox One and PS4 gaming platforms. The other two covers we shot were Leo Messi in Barcelona for FIFA14 and Adrian Peterson in New York for Madden25.
With the Xbox One and PS4 platforms rolling out for the holidays, you will be seeing our photo of Leo Messi everywhere. The shoot took place in Barcelona and while very quick was one of the most memorable shoots of the year.
We had a great shoot with Loma Media in Vegas shooting a couple of players from each team for PR and advertising for the year. Here is one of the spots.
Congrats to Jim Hancock on seeing Racing Le Mans through, I think the show is very compelling and well shot. Jim and I met when I interned with Dean Collins in 1989. Both Patrick and Jim are true examples of chasing your passion.
Here is a snap of Patrick from The Baja 1000.
More to come in a couple of weeks about our shoot with Leo Messi in Barcelona. EA is starting to share some of our work!
Here is a shot of the new book, The 100, from Jorge Cruise. Jorge and I have worked together on several shoots over years and I was thrilled when he asked me to shoot this cover. Congrats Jorge on once again being on The New York Times Best Sellers list!
I had the privilege of working with Martin Sheen while he was recording a voice-over for a University of San Diego TV spot. I can honestly say he was one of the nicest people I have ever worked with and a true pro. Nice to meet someone you admire and have them exceed your expectations. We also shot the cover of Kevin the rabbit with our Phase One P45 back. Always a pleasure to see great design match up with great printing!
I just received a copy of the new USD Alumni Magazine with a few of my photos from our coverage of The Dalai Lama's visit to San Diego. Another great layout from the USD design team!
Here are a couple videos EA shot with me to help promote their new campaign to find which NFL Legend will be featured with RGIII on the cover of NCAA13.
We had an great shoot a few weeks back for Turkish Airlines photographing Kobe Bryant. I first photographed Kobe back when he was a rookie in 1997 for Directv. We both have a little less hair now! In addition to the shoot, we handled oversight of the retouching. Here is a peek at the ad in Time Magazine and an ad at LAX that was sent to me by fellow photographer Michael Collopy.
Below is another ad that is popping up in a few of the travel magazines. All images were shot with our new medium format digital back and I have to say these giant files look amazing.
Take a peek at the Behind the Scenes video for the TV spot. You get a quick glimpse of my bald head at :26.
