To help unwind on the weekends, Elvis and his entourage would organize spirited touch football games in De Neve Park, not far from where he lived in Bel Air. Their favorite opponent was pop singer and television star Ricky Nelson and his band, although other celebrities also took part in the games ...........Read More

Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum

My latest book is on what I consider to be the most historic stadium in America, The Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. In addition to pulling from rare archives at the Coliseum, I also shot about 30 photos myself for the book. The book covers all of the stadium's remarkable history in over 220 photos and I'm proud with how it turned out. (If you get one and would like it inscribed for yourself or someone else, write me. We'll figure it out.)

Huntington Beach California

My first book (which came out last year) was on the history of Huntington Beach, California. "Surf City" as it is called, is one of Southern California's most historically significant cities and the book seems to have become a local favorite. (It's in its fourth printing already.) In addition to about 190 historic archive photos, I also shot about 50 pictures for the book myself (some of which are here on the web site.) Huntington Beach is my home now and I hope that never changes. If you check out the book I think you'll know why.
