    This is a photo Blog that I like to call "Wisconsin Portrait."

    My life as a photojournalist, and Chief Photographer for the Wisconsin State Journal can be exciting and fast paced, with news and sports assignments making up a large part of my  professional working life. As a photographer that is not enough.

    My job as a professional observer has opened my eyes to many things around me. I can't drive down a street or take a walk, without seeing as a photographer.

    Most of the pictures I want to feature here are snapshots around the state.  Hopefully showing you these pictures will open your eyes to things you may see everyday, but not really look at.

    All comments are welcome.

Paddle And Portage-Madison Wisconsin

Pin It

The 33rd annual Paddle & Portage canoe race was held Saturday July 21, 2012 at James Madison Park in Madison. The race involves a 1.5 mile paddle on Lake Mendota, a 1 mile portage across downtown Madison, and a a 1.5 mile portage across Lake Monona.Since it has been a few years since I photographed this event, I’m not sure when they changed from a mass start to a wave start. It used to be a great event, now it is just another race. Gone are the photos of hundreds of canoes starting together and making their way up North Hamilton Street and past the Capitol. It is to bad that really made nice photos.
