Photo Journalism

Recently I had the opportunity to do some field photography for the Concrete Herald. Thank you to Jason Miller for the opportunities. I can't wait to get out for some more assignments.

I was able to get some shot of Tim Behrens during his comedy show at the Darrington High School Auditorium on September 22. Tim does a one man comedy routine based on characters and stories written by Pat McManus who is a humor writer who writes primarily about the outdoors. His work has been featured in a column in Outdoor Life, Field and Stream and other magazines. He has written several books as well. The two have been working together for about 20 years producing these comedy shows. If you ever get a chance, I would highly suggest checking out both. It was hard to take photos because I was laughing so hard. You can find more information at McManus Plays or Pat McManus's website.

I also had the special privilege, last night, of grabbing a photo of local Darrington resident, Nancy Snyder, receiving her award for being inducted into the Snohomish County Sports Hall of Fame. Ms. Snyder has quite a list of accomplishments which include coaching the Darrington boys baseball team for 20 years to include a state championship in 1981. The first female baseball coach to win a championship.

The list is long, here are just a few:

  • 1977, Everett Herald Woman of the Year in Sports
  • 1997, Snohomish County Woman of the Year in Sports
  • 2011, inducted into the Everett Community Athletic Hall of Fame
  • League Coach of the Year in volleyball (2 times), and baseball (3 times) 
During College she play volleyball, badminton, competed nationally in shot-put and javelin throw, and played field hockey and softball.

Congratulations to Nancy Snyder!!
