OTOA Conference

Last year I spent a week at the OTOA (Ohio Tactical Officers Association) annual training conference in northern Ohio providing photo coverage of their speakers, vendor show, range day and training classes spread out over the whole top of the state. It was a very busy week, but I had a blast and ran into some old friends.

I’ll be returning next week and will have a booth at the vendor show (#95 in the main room). Below is a slideshow of my shots from last year that you’ll see scrolling through on the TVs and screens during the event.

Steelers win, Pittsburgh riots.

I went out right after the Super Bowl game to photograph the anticipated riots here in the Oakland area of Pittsburgh. It was mostly Pitt students, with a mix of CMU'ers and even some random adults from the area. I was super-impressed by how well the cops handled the crowds - sure there were torn down signs, leveled busstops, broken library windows and bonfires in the streets, but I still haven't heard of any major personal injuries.
