About nhatgnat
I have worked as a staff photographer for newspapers for the past 10 years. For the past 6 years I've been at the San Jose Mercury News where I've covered everything from the Olympics to community parades. Before the Mercury News I worked as a staff photographer at the Virginian-Pilot in Norfolk, Va. I grew up in Colorado and graduated from the University of Missouri with a bachelors degree.

Although I do a little bit of everything at the Mercury News, most of my time is spent shooting sports in the fall and spring - mainly pro and college football and then college basketball. Every-so-often I'll cover a baseball or hockey game.

My first 35mm slr was a Minolta 7000 when I was 12 years old, I gave up all holiday presents and allowance for a year for the camera. Before that I had many 110's and a poloroid camera. My best friend from high school and I produced a ski magazine called Glucose; another ski magazine, when we were in high school, which had sponsors and advertisers. We published three issues and the magazine ended when we went to seperate colleges. After attending one year at the University of Colorado at Boulder I transfered to the University of Missouri at Columbia to attened their photo journalism program.

I've lived in Pennsylvania, Texas, Colorado, Utah, Virginia, Missouri, North Carolina, Wisconsin and now California.
