  • Both of these fine professional photographers deserve accolades from their peers and the rest of us too!  Their sports photgraphy is of a similar quality to that often seen in such major magazines like Sports Illustrated.  They both have a keen sense of composition and the art of letting their pictures tell the story.  Kudos goes out to these fine photogs!  We will be lucky to keep them here for a short time, as some major publications are sure to snatch them away.
