I apologize for the lack of photo updates here on Bandera.net. If you’ve spoken with me in person, you know why this is. If you haven’t, I’m not really at liberty to be candid with the details here on the Net.

As vaguely as I can explain it, I am no longer subsidizing the Bulletin’s photography budget with my professional equipment, and the newspaper has given me a broken point-and-shoot camera with which to shoot Bandera County sports for the foreseeable future.

If you want to know my feelings on this, don’t hesitate to ask.

I hope that the situation will change for the better in the near future, but from what I’ve been told, it’s highly unlikely. I think this is quite unfortunate.

Luckily there is some light at the end of the tunnel in the form of a number of very good local photographers who are shooting Bandera County sports as freelancers this year. Check out the work of Spencer Smith, Ken Lane and Rick Mender to get your sports photo fix.

And what of Bandera.net? Many good things are on the horizon. Bookmark away and come back often; what you’ll see here in the near future is unlike anything that’s graced the Internet landscape of Bandera County. Those of you who know me well know I don’t make such boasts without warrant.

Stay tuned – it’s about to get good!

Eight albums of fresh Bandera County sports photos are newly posted over at the Bulletin’s DotPhoto.com account, including:

That’s right folks, the first baseball photos of the year and all three Bandera County school districts worth of basketball playoffs. All three teams were knocked out of the post-season, but not without some great games played first.

Let me take this chance to express how thankful I am to the community for giving me the privilege of covering your sports for the past decade of my life. All of these athletes are amazing young people who deserve the recognition and positive attention that good photojournalism can provide, and it’s my pleasure to work the courts and fields each week with my camera.

If there is anything more I can do to serve your sports coverage needs, please don’t hesitate to contact me. Thank you again for the opportunities, and for supporting The Outlaw!
