DEFEND NEW ORLEANS!

I recently had the pleasure of shooting mega Saints fan Darth Saint in New Orleans for Sportsnet Magazine out of Canada. If you are a Saints fan this guy probably looks familiar to you because of all the air time he has gotten. 

Recently with all of the "accusations" that have been thrown at the New Orleans Saints I couldn't help but find even more pride in these photos. After finally getting time this morning to read about the "scandal" and all of the unprecedented penalties that the NFL has hit the team with, I'm very frustrated! SO! I have an idea, let's send Darth Saint to the NFL offices with a lightsaber and defend Sean Payton and the Saints organization. I would like to see Roger Goodell's face when Darth Saints walks in his office.. 

Don't Pull a Miles...

Sad day for LSU fans.. A perfect season gone down the drain. As a resident of the great state of Louisiana I am mourning this loss as well, although I can't seem to miss the learning opportunity. For four quarters I watch Jordan Jefferson completely stink up the field, listened to LSU fans boo their own quarterback. The whole time I remained optimistic that Les Miles would put in LSU's other quarterback Jared Lee.. It never happened. Possession after possession I was blown away at how stubborn Les Miles was being, it seemed everyone knew the current plan to win was not working except him. As I'm laying here thinking about the game I can't help but realize how similar a lot of photographers are to Les Miles tonight. We create the same work over and over again hoping it will somehow become original and great, but it stays the same. I challenge you as a photographer to break out of the mold you are in that is leading you nowhere. Be original, be creative and stop holding yourself back! If not you will end up like Les Miles and run out of time to make the change that could potentially lead you to victory. Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. -Albert Einstein Bye bye LSU perfect season.. Hello Saints playoff game! WHO DAT!
