Missouri pulled out a come from behind victory over Arkansas in the last game of the season at Faurot Field in Columbia, MO in the annual Battle Line game. Missouri won 28-24 after being down 24-7 at halftime.

Senior Day is always a fun game to photograph, the players seem to give a little more effort to make sure the seniors go out with a win. The tradition of seniors grabbing a rock out of the north end zone’s Rock M is always the highlight of photographing the last game of the season at Mizzou.

I had a great time helping to cover Columbia, Missouri’s premiere music event of the year the annual Roots ‘n Blues ‘n BBQ Festival at Stephens Lake Park. As part of the Photo Kingpin Crew we have free rain to capture the bands and fans at the festival.

I had the chance to photograph and listen some old favorites like The Music Maker Blues Revue, Blues Traveler and Mike Ferris and discovered some new great bands like Rev. Peyton’s Big Damn Band and Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats.

Here are a few photos from this year’s festival, I can’t wait to be back next year to capture all the fun.

The college football season is under way in Columbia, Missouri and we kicked it off by photographing the first game of SEC conference play for the Missouri Tigers and Georgia Bulldogs. The game also marked the annual Tiger Stripe game for Mizzou. Fans in alternating sections wore black and gold to create the tiger stripe.

I wanted to try something a little different to capture a new photo of the tiger stripe in the stadium. I brought out a panoramic head and monopod to create a full 360 degree image of the stands as the players were running onto the filed. After a little Photoshop work I was able to create a really cool 360 degree tiny world panorama of the field. This was the first time I have tried something like this and I thought the results were pretty good. You never quite know what you are going to get when you are stitching multiple photos together with people moving in the frame. I think I have caught the 360 bug and am trying to think of new ways to incorporate this technique into my work.

Missouri players enter the field in this composite panoramic picture before the start of an NCAA college football game against Georgia at Faurot Field in Columbia, Missouri. The contest marked the school's annual "Tiger Stripe" game where sections alternated wearing black and gold.

When I’m not out taking pictures I spend a lot of time on my bike traveling the roads of Mid-Missouri. Cycling has always been one of my favorite hobbies for as long as I can remember. I headed down to Jefferson City to photograph the Missouri State Championship Criterium as the racers made their way through downtown Jefferson City and around the Missouri State Capital grounds. Noting beats watching a good bike race.

There are advantages of having a staff photographer position at a hospital with a helicopter service. Every now and then I get go for a quick ride for some aerial photography. The University of Missouri was in need of some updated aerial photographs of the campus and we took advantage of the fall light and colors to make some appealing photographs of the Columbia area. We focused on the main campus including Jesse Hall and the Columns, Memorial Union, the Mizzou Sports Complex and University Hospital.
