On my first day of shooting, I caught a glimpse of Ed Reed exercising and rehabbing his hip while practice was going. Rookies DJ Swearinger and DeAndre Hopkins made some great playsRead More

Well of course I couldn’t say no seeing as though I attended my first Essence Festival just last year. What a difference a year makes! I would bring my camera to the SuperRead More
