Caught this dramatic shot at a house fire last spring, while doing some stringer photography for the local media. This one stood out to me because it captured the entire moment perfectly; from the look on the Fire Captain’s face as he speaks into the radio, to the flames leaping out of the roof in the background; it clearly conveys a sense of attention and urgency.

I enjoy photographing landscapes, architecture, and nature in general; but newsworthy photography is so much more exciting and rewarding. Much harder work to “get the shot” however.

To see all the photos from this day, check out the Flickr set:

Remember, most all of my photos are part of sets; and the rest can usually be found somewhere on my Flickr.
