Caleb Kelly, Sooner Bound

[dropcap]C[/dropcap]aleb Kelly is a senior linebacker for Clovis West and a top recruit, nationally. He held an event in Fresno last Wednesday to make his choice of schools between the University of Oklahoma and Notre Dame. After joking he chose the Dallas Cowboys, he instead put on an Oklahoma cap and pledged to go with the Sooners. I covered that event for the Fresno Bee. After having photographed Hatari Byrd for the Sooner Spectator magazine, I expected I might get another call to do a shoot with Caleb. Sure enough I did and here are the results. Caleb is a great kid and I’m sure he will make a big impact in the NCAA.

Drought Impacts

[dropcap]T[/dropcap]hese photos were for a story for The Progressive Farmer magazine that detailed the plight of farmers in the Central Valley due to the drought. I photographed Dan Errotabere, a member of the Fresno County Farm Bureau, who was a subject in the article. I met him out at his ranch near Five Points where he showed me several fallow fields.

African Adventure Opens

[dropcap]I[/dropcap] did a number of events throughout 2015 for the Fresno Chaffee Zoo but one of the big ones was the highly anticipated opening of African Adventure, which nearly doubled the size of the zoo. I was there for all the dignitary speeches, the ribbon cutting and the first day of the public opening. It’s a very cool addition to the zoo that I think will make Fresno a travel destination.

The Ultimate Man Cave

[dropcap]I[/dropcap]’ve been working with Monster City Studios for a little while now documenting a project the creatives there refer to as simply “the man cave.” They’ve also called it an Indiana Jones-themed adult recreation center or the Temple of Vroom. I call it amazing. Complete with pool tables, shuffle boards, arcade games, a full bar sprawling below a military jeep creeping along a rope bridge, a giant Buddha head and DJ stage, a pyramid temple and facade’s of quaint villages from third world countries, this is a big kid’s dream. All this tucked away in a nondescript warehouse in the middle of Fresno. I’m told it belongs to a Fresno businessman who will use it for family parties and special private engagements and fundraisers. How do I get on that guest list?! Anyway, it’s quite a remarkable sight. Monster City designed and constructed all of the 3D pieces that surround the warehouse; most of it milled from Styrofoam and hard-coated with polyurea. You’ve probably seen other pieces of their work at Chukchansi Park and the Fresno Fairgrounds.
