San Francisco Bay Area sports photographer Brad Mangin just added a new batch of old scans to his archives.

Being a freelance photographer in 2013 means there is always office work to do. I always need to update my website, update my blog, edit a shoot, caption old images, and entertain my cats. You get the idea. The other day I finally finished captioning my newest batch of 336 scans from old negs and chromes so I could update my online searchable archive powered by PhotoShelter. What a huge pain-in-the-ass it was spending several days captioning stuff from the 1980′s and 1990′s, but I am done! I now have 61, 269 images in my archive!
