My Month of October on the Treasure Coast

Another interesting month on the Treasure Coast, although I wasn't here when the all the most interesting stuff was happening. Maybe you heard, but we had a little storm by the name of Hurricane Matthew sideswipe us here on the Treasure Coast that caused some damage, power outages and the like. I, unfortunately, was not here to help out the rest of the team covering the storm because I was on vacation out of the state. Maybe next time.

Other than the storm, it was business as usual here. I found myself shooting sports, football and golf mostly, with a smattering of a few daily and general assignments. Nothing too out of the ordinary. Maybe with the year quickly coming to an end, things will pick up.

Anyway, here are a few photos from some of my assignments in October. Enjoy.

My Month of September on the Treasure Coast

Another month down and we're nearing the end of the year. Man, it has flown by. This month was quite interesting and the assignments mill kept churning out interesting opportunities to make some photos I'd never made before and several I have. Living on the Treasure Coast has some interesting perks, chief among them, I get to see and meet some influential movers and shakers.

I had an assignment come across my desk to cover a talk being given by Dave Barry, a Miami-based writer who worked as a humorist and columnist for the Miami Herald and has written several books. I had another opportunity to photograph the Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton as she passed through our area giving campaign speeches. And, finally, I had a chance to meet Tim Tebow, the former University of Florida quarterback, Heisman Trophy winner, NFL quarterback and now a member of the New York Mets baseball organization. I almost got to cover Donald Trump as well, but was pulled off of that due to overstaffing.

Along with those assignments, the rest of the month was filled with spot news, high school sports and general assignments. Not too shabby. Here's a collection of photos from the month.
