Top Moments as a Newspaper Photographer - #2
4 Super Bowls!!!! I have been fortunate enough to be assigned to photograph Super Bowls XXX, XL, XLIII, and XLV.
Super Bowl XXX - This was my first, and in many ways, my favorite to shoot. It was huge, but not as big as it would grow into over the next 15 years. The Pittsburgh Steelers lost to the Dallas Cowboys, and when the newspaper had to readjust our travel plans, that left me with an extra couple days in Arizona.
Super Bowl XL - This also was my favorite Super Bowl to cover in many ways. I covered all of the home game and traveled to all of the away games this season. With a very pregnant wife, someone was hoping the Steelers would just lose so I could be home. But they kept winning, until they defeated the Seattle Seahawks for that fifth ring.
Super Bowl XLIII - An amazing game to photograph. There were so many memorable moments in this game. My personal favorite was being on James Harrison's 103 yard Pick 6 for 100+ frames.
Super Bowl XLV - My last Super Bowl as a Tribune-Review photographer. The Steelers lost this one to the Green Bay Packers in a game that produced some decent images, but not my finest work. I still want one for the thumb. For me, I plan on attending some Super Bowl with my son as a fan just to complete the ring.
