I was absolutely thrilled and honoured when the National Lacrosse League hired me to cover the 2014 Hall of Fame induction ceremony.

To bear witness and to be counted on to document great people receiving such prestigious awards is without question the greatest honour that can be bestowed upon a photographer. I believe that to make truly meaningful photos, the photographer must be a part of the photo and to do that, they must be accepted into the lives of their clients and trusted as one of their own.

Over the course of my photographic career, I have met some amazing people and formed some great relationships, so it should come as no surprise that I share the exhilaration of their successes and the sadness of their losses. As in my own personal world, the lacrosse world suffered a great deal of loss recently. We lost pioneers, leaders, players, and mentors of the game.

The following link is a very well written piece from the staff at Inside Lacrosse. Although it may seem trivial to some, I simply cannot express with words of how honoured I am to have the above photo chosen to accompany the story. The loss of these individuals touched me deeply. I am saddened yet blessed to know their stories. They have left their individual marks in this material world and now we owe it to them to continue to grow the great game.
