Montana in May – Part One

Montana in May - Part One

Things have been trucking along here at the newspaper over the month of May. As of late, I’ve found that I’ve been up close and personel with a lot of animals on assignments lately. I adorned a bee keeper suit as I photographed a guy and his bee colonies, I’ve had my head chewed on […]


Bozeman Cyclocross and Fall Features

Bozeman Cyclocross and Fall Features

I have always been jealous of my photographer buddies in Portland, Oregon who get to photograph the muddy, up-and-coming sport of cyclocross. It looks like such a wonderfully goofy social sport event and the photos they would bring back from it made it look like just a blast to photograph. Last weekend I finally got the […]


Two weeks working Solo at the Bozeman Daily Chronicle

Two weeks working Solo at the Bozeman Daily Chronicle

Well I just got through a two week bender being the sole photographer here at the Bozeman Daily Chronicle. Needless to say I am in need of a proper weekend of relaxation. But our new hired gun/photographer my friend Adrian Sanchez Gonzalez has arrived in the Big Sky and I’m looking forward to working towards making our […]

Reflecting on my newspaper photos from May 2011

Reflecting on my newspaper photos from May 2011

And I’m back. I took a little break from the blog this month. So much has been going on in my neck of the woods. Here are some of the images I made this month that stood out to me. I felt pretty good about the images I made. I’ve been doing a lot of […]

Howdy guys. Well, it was a pretty slow April around the newspaper. But I wanted to share some of my favorite shots from this past month. Thanks for looking. Cheers to warm weather. -M


March Musician Madness

March Musician Madness

Madness not in the basketball sense but in how busy I was for the entirety of this past March. It seemed that this past month was a big one for the community arts around Solano County. I had a great time photographing the Vacaville Singer/Songwriter competition finals in downtown Vacaville. I’ve been working in the area […]


Getting Back into my Groove

Getting Back into my Groove

I feel like I am starting to get back into my photo groove at my staff job here at the Daily Republic newspaper. My back has been feeling a lot better and with it I have been going out a lot more on my own to feature hunt and explore the area. I’ve been pretty […]

Solo June

Solo June

June has, so far, proven to be a crazy month for me at my newspaper. For much of the time, I have been working solo due from a mixture of co worker’s injuries, vacations, and departure from the photo staff. Between attending meetings and running around non stop shooting all of the assignments, I’ve had […]

The Sporting News of Fairfield

The Sporting News of Fairfield

Holy smokes! I have been busy these last couple of weeks. So much so that I haven’t had much free time to update on my blog. I continue to cover all of the local sporting events happening around Solano County. The winter seasons are beginning to wind down. Playoffs are upon us. Here are some […]


Quick Out of the Shoots in the New Year

Quick Out of the Shoots in the New Year

Well, I’ve really been enjoying the new year so far. I have busy working on a new website that I hope to have completed in a month or so. I’ll be sure to let you all know when it is up and running. In addition, my wedding photography business has taken off and I already […]


Steelheading on the Klamath River

Steelheading on the Klamath River

I just got back from a weekend fishing the Klamath River with my buddy Ryan Peterson, travel specialist at The Fly Shop. It was just gorgeous this time of year. The fall colors were really popping. I recently purchased a new Profoto AcuteB 600R power pack and lamp head and decided to test them out […]

Looking back on October

Looking back on October

I had an awesome October. Just came off an awe inspiring week in upstate New York when I attended the Eddie Adams Workshop Barnstorm XXII. I met a lot of amazing photographers and got a chance to show my work a lot of big wiggs in the journalism industry. I should have some photos up […]


The Return of Prep Football and the Portrait Machine

The Return of Prep Football and the Portrait Machine

Well after a long summer, football season has finally arrived. Things are starting to get busy around the paper with the dawn of the new school year. Prep sports are getting underway and my newspaper, like so many others, does an annual prep football preview section to ring in the new season. I was assigned […]


The Making of a Photo Illustration

I wanted to talk a little bit about a photo illustration that ran on the front this past week’s Sunday Sports section of the Daily Republic. I was assigned early last week to photograph our sports department’s picks for the Track Athletes of the Year, Daje Pugh and Dante Thomas of Fairfield High School. I […]


Old Love

This was from an assignment I shot the other day about a elderly Fairfield couple, Jim Davis and his fiancee Barbara Gregory, who met over the Internet and were now getting married. They had me over for a tour of their home and to tell of how they met. Jim is the biggest pack rat […]


Sport Season Enders

After these last couple of weeks shooting high school sport playoffs, my arms have developed a tan line that a farmer would be proud of. The job has been keeping me busy. Here’s a long overdue update.


Enjoying the Weather


Row your Boat

One of the nice things about working at a newspaper is that the assignments tend to be very random. This past couple of days definately fit into that mantra. It started off with a story on a women’s whale boat rowing team. These women were training in the Bay for an upcoming race paddling 80-year-old […]
