I am very excited to have one of my photos on the cover of the July 2013 issue of Inside Lacrosse magazine. The won the 2013 NCAA national championship and the photo used is them celebrating after coming back to the locker room. Thanks for the players and staff for letting me to their lives for the weekend. 
There are more photos inside the magazine from the weekend.

My friend Peyton got the cover shot for Inside Lacrosse magazine’s feature on the NCAA championship. Pretty cool, but Duke sucks. Go Heels!

What a cool way to bring a kid’s dreams to life.
Photog Uses His Imagination to Bring Joy to Boy with Muscular Dystrophy

Slovenia photographer Matej Peljhan has a touching series of photographs titled The Little Prince, which stars a 12-year-old boy named Luka. The images show the boy exploring an imaginary world created by laying colored sheets and household objects on the ground. Peljhan created the images to give Luka the feeling of being able to do things he can’t.
You see, Luka suffers from muscular dystrophy, a disease that causes his body to become weaker and weaker over time…

Angelo Merendino’s photographs document his wife’s fight with breast cancer. This project is really powerful and personal and very emotional in so many ways.
There’s a blog post on the site in which he talks about a reminder that his wife, Jen, put in his calendar prior to her death that is heart-wrenching.
The Battle We Didn’t Choose: My Wife’s Fight with Breast Cancer

Jen taught me to love, to listen, to give and to believe in others and myself. I’ve never been as happy as I was during this time…
…My photographs show this daily life. They humanize the face of cancer, on the face of my wife. They show the challenge, difficulty, fear, sadness and loneliness that we faced, that Jennifer faced, as she battled this disease. Most important of all, they show our Love.  These photographs do not define us, but they are us.
Cancer is in the news daily, and maybe, through these photographs, the next time a cancer patient is asked how he or she is doing, along with listening, the answer will be met with more knowledge, empathy, deeper understanding, sincere caring and heartfelt concern.

650m of awesomeness: World’s longest waterslide in Auckland


People enjoy the muddy thrills and spills on a waterslide dug into a hillside in Waimauku on Feb. 23, 2013 in Auckland, New Zealand. Only 2000 people will have the honor of riding the water slides, with one measuring 650 meters long built by New Zealanders Jimi Hunt and Dan Drupstee, of the “Live more Awesome” charity this weekend. The world’s longest slide will be open for only two days to raise funds and awareness of depression.
