Mens 100 Final in Beijing, China
As a staff photographer for Sports Illustrated Magazine, the opportunity to photogragh sporting events brings me to many places for many great moments performed by superior athletes.
Photographing Olympic competition is like no other moment in sports. In 2008, the staff at Sports Illustrated made some of the most memorable pictures while in Beijing, China. I had the opportunity not only to experience taste of an ancient culture in a place a world away, but also to make many memories and friendships that will last a lifetime.
