I’m honored to be included with the best of the Associated Press.
The Post Bulletin, Minnesota Newspaper Association’s 2018 Daily Newspaper of the Year, published a year-end roundup of the best photos for Associated Press’ member newspapers to share when nothing else is happening locally. This Eight Belles photo from 2008 made it as the fifth item on the list!

This saw widespread distribution through the PRNewswire. Mary Jean was my on-site editor for this AP Images job in Shelbyville, where I had shot the ground-breaking for the distillery years ago.

It was with great sadness that I learned of the passing of Muhammad Ali Saturday morning. My love and condolences go out to his family, friends and the people who worked with him, along with the public at large. He was an international icon loved and respected by all, and Louisville will miss him the most. But his presence will last forever.
While I’ve never been introduced to Muhammad Ali or had my photo taken with him, I’ve been near him on many occasions on assignment for the AP or shooting the Muhammad Ali Humanitarian Awards for the Ali Center. Many of my AP file photos from a 2012 assignment are being used now.
Here’s the gallery I sent at that time.
Rest in peace, Ali.
I found my photo used in a gallery of Derby photos on Boston.com’s Big Shots:

2010 Kentucky Derby
Mint juleps and mud marked the 136th running of the Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs. A wet weekend in Louisville didn’t stop the Derby hats from coming out, and it didn’t stop Super Saver either. Jockey Calvin Borel again rode the victor, his third win out of the last four races. ( 17 photos total)
