A couple of home games against Creswell and Willamina

SC hosted Creswell in early December and Willamina after the new year began.  Pictures of Girls and Boys Varsity, and even some JV pictures!


Happy 2018!

Yes, OttFam took some time off over the holidays.  Christmas was great, and New Years, well, you get to an age that it is simply easier to just go to bed 🙂

There is some catching up to do now that we are in a new year!  There are pictures of a Perrydale football game, way back from week 1 of the season!  I will also share the 2018 OttFam calendar.  I have early pics of Santiam Christian boys and girls basketball, but those aren’t quite ready to online yet.  I will also be attending the SC games against Willamina this Friday and will probably post them all together.

An evening in Scio…

I finally made it to Scio to watch them play and it wasn’t against Santiam Christian!  It was fun to watch them with a big win in the quarterfinals.  


Santiam Christian Post Season Pics!

The football team had little issues in the first round of the playoffs, while the volleyball team went down at the wire in a great match with Cascade Christian.


Otting-girls Volleyball!

Boy did this keep me busy!  On top of all my work for SC, I was chasing around my daughters and their separate volleyball teams.  With so much going on, I didn’t even come close to enough time to edit these. But if you order any prints, I will edit them and give you 50% off!  And if these are good enough, then download all and any you wish!!  Email me with questions at

Some 2017 SC Football and Volleyball pictures!

Things are so busy my brain feels like a pinball!  I also have soccer and cross-country pictures that will hopefully be up soon, as well as another football game.  For now, here you go!  Please share this site with friends and family, and I love seeing these pics being posted online!!

A second family is still family!

I was introduced to the Laiblin family over 20 years ago, and have felt loved ever since.  This Labor Day weekend I was able to spend some time in Alsea with them, and I am very happy to share the pictures I took!

A good night with old friends…

Thank you to all who came!  I should have gotten the camera out a little bit early, but there was drinking to do!  Feel free to save any or all of these images to your phone or computer.  If you want a print, email me at and I will work on getting you the digital copy or I can get the prints done.

Far from the beginning

As another school year ends, I feel led to give an update as well as a history.  In 2008 I was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer.  I dove into photography as a way to earn some money while I couldn’t work as an electrician.  Almost 9 years later, and here I am, back as an electrician, and loving photography as much as ever.  All praise to God that I am still alive, and able to take pictures!

Honestly, this page was started to try and sell landscape pictures I had been taking.  And it ended up as a giant display board for pictures taken of Santiam Christian athletics.  Not the road I predicted.  Different gear has been purchased over the years.  Less time in the outdoors than desired.  And a lot of deadlines I never saw coming.  But yet, my heart is full.

I have found that Track & Field is hands down the hardest avenue to take pictures of.  Let’s face it, kids make terrible faces when doing the long jump, or sprinting, or jumping hurdles.  Speaking of hurdles, nothing has challenged me more than focusing on an object running one direction and jumping in another!  Frustration has driven me to edge more than once.  Then I get the picture.  You know, THE picture.  I see a junior set a PR in the 800, and his mom is waiting at the finish line.  A mom who has supported him all the way.  He melts into her arms, relieved by the fact that he just qualified for the State Finals.

Another photography, while not taking pictures of the encounter, tells me how “You just got it.  The picture that says why we are here.”

I have coached, I have cheered, and now I just take pictures.  My website gets updated by games and tournaments, by seasons instead of hikes and camp outs.  And I get frustrated that I don’t spend more “free time” taking pics.  But as frustrated as I get, pictures like this keep me behind the camera…
