“Meet Me In The Corner!”

ELMIRA, NY – February 6, 2015 – The Jackals scored four unanswered goals and powered past the Cyclones, 4-1, in an emotional, penalty-filled contest tonight at First Arena.

As the Jackals cruised towards victory with the final buzzer sounding, mayhem ensued with gloves, sticks and helmets littering the ice. The two teams combined for 144 penalty minutes, 10 fighting majors and six misconducts.

Something Different from Tonights Game…


Howdy Wichita!

On the occasion of the very first ever visit of the Wichita Thunder to Elmira, NY & First Arena, I thought I would post a few Absolutely Heartwarming Images detailing the Love & Camaraderie that was shared this afternoon at First Arena for what I must say was the most exciting & entertaining games that we’ve had there in the last couple of years!  After two tough losses already this weekend, where we really had our asses handed to us, frankly I wasn’t too thrilled to spend Sunday afternoon shooting Game #3. But as the game progressed and the Jackals lead grew, you could cut the nastiness that was in the air with a knife! Incident after incident started unfolding, until  late in the third period we had the re-creation of “The Fight” the first and biggest Jackals Bru-Ha-Ha ever, at then…the Coach USA Center. (I shot that one too by the way!) So anyway, I dub this little Glove Dance….The Fight II”  Enjoy!

The “SHORT” End of the Stick

So Elmira College started things out this rainy, damp Saturday @ First Arena, and tonight the Jackals dropped another one at home 6-2, and if you were there you’ll now what I’m talking about when I say that they came out on the “Short” end of the stick. Figure it out! lol



Bing, Bang, Boom!

Our Elmira Jackals had a rough night Friday Evening, suffering a 5-0 Shutout Loss @ the hands of the South Carolina Stingrays. When the team plays badly, I don’t seem to get may great shots either….but I did manage to salvage a few action packed moments anyway! I thought this move was pretty slick!

“Are You Guys Brothers?”








It’s just a simple fact, that anyone, who knows anything at all about ice hockey knows about “The Hanson Brothers”, the legendary Triplets in the ’70’s Cult Classic movie “SLAPSHOT” with Paul Newman. That movie is one of my all time top ten favorite films I’ve ever seen.  That all being said, back when I was the Sports Photographer for Elmira College, a few years before the Jackals came into existence, the son of Steve Carlson one of the Hanson Brothers, actually was a student at Elmira College and played on the EC Mens Varsity Hockey team for the couple of years while I was shooting there. Anyway, to make a long story short, he got me an autographed 8×10 of his Dad & his Uncles, the Hansons, and all three of these Living Legends hand signed it! Needless to say, the photo holds a special place in my heart and hangs proudly in my Personal Office here at the Studio!
So I was quite pleased when I noticed last nights starting Evansville Goaltender #41 Branden Komm, had some VERY interesting airbrushed artwork on his mask, namely the Hanson’s. Two of the boys are on one side of the mask, and the third one is on the other side. So I tracked him down before the start of tonight’s game and got a few shots of these historic Ice Legends that are now gracing his Mask! I just thought it was pretty neat!

Jackals SCORE!


Guthrie Corning Hospital – The Future IS HERE!

Took the walking tour this afternoon of the brand new Guthrie Corning Hospital Campus, and let me just say this….IMPRESSIVE!
This Facility is so Futuristic & Hi-Tech, so Beautiful, so Top Shelf… ALMOST makes you want to be sick, so you can spend some time there. To all involved….. A JOB TREMENDOUSLY WELL DONE! A Great Addition & Asset to our local Medical Communnity.

Army Days

Memorial Day, brings back memories from long ago, when brave young men & women went off to fight in World War II, the “War to End All War’s” or so they said……so what a perfect day to post a few more Army & Air Force themed personal favorites from this weekend’s moving Return of the Red Tails event honoring the Heroic Tuskegee Airmen of WWII, held at the Wings Of Eagles Discovery Center. As the Events Official Photographer I had the honor to spend the day amongst these hero’s, and also with one of the only two remaining P-51 Fighters that are still flying today.  It was a true honor. My thanks to all the Period Re-En actors featured in these great shots.
