Adidas Uprising 2015

Summer 2015 has been one of the busiest in recent memory and I have adidas Uprising to thank for most of it.  I've been the adidas social media photographer for three camps/tournaments in Dallas, Indianapolis and Long Beach, California, photographing some of the best high school basketball players in the country.  My images have been featured on the adidas Uprising and adidas Hoops Instagram and Facebook pages, and on the adidas Uprising homepage.  It's been great getting to know the adidas grassroots team and players this summer! More to come!  


Back to The Springs

Some new images from my most recent trip out to Colorado Springs

Rain over The Springs. This is the view from the Will Rodgers Shrine of The Sun, located right above the Cheyanne Mountain Zoo.

The Springs pt. II

A visit to Colorado Springs isn't complete without a visit to the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, the only mountainside zoo in the U.S.  At 6,800 feet above sea level, it's bit of a hike but definitely worth it. Cheyenne Mountain Zoo is also home to the largest giraffe herd in the country (18)! Pay a couple bucks for a handful of lettuce and watch about 3-4 giraffes get suddenly very interested in what you have to say :)

The trip ended with a hike near Helen Hunt Falls with some more crazy, fast changing weather, and some great late-afternoon views of downtown Colorado Springs.  

(Thanks to Madison for the photos of yours truly!)
