All about the Action!
I remember T-ball when I was 10, I recall playing football in high school, and all the intramural spots in college. Thank goodness for the camera, because I am a much better sports photographer than athlete. Over the years, I have been hired to photograph NBA games, NFL games, little league baseball, adventure races, motorcycle races, and high school track to name just a few. (I was also hired to photograph a NHL party where I got to eat chocolate Hagen Daz out of the Stanley Cup). Did I mention I love being a photographer? I have traveled all over the country working with different teams, companies, and sports brands. What a great way to spend a day.
Being an athlete, enjoying sports, and understanding rules of the game are a huge advantage. When I see the way a left handed baseball player steps up to the plate, I have a pretty good understanding of the direction he will hit the ball. When I see the hand signals between two volleyball players in the sand, I know to shift for the line shot they are going to spike. And when I am photographing a motorcycle race, or a 10k run, I can see the course and judge the best locations for the best shots; where they will unknowingly slow up for a photo or lean deep into a curve. Additionally, I also know the safest places to be when someone is running the 400 meter hurdles or when a football is being thrown into the end zone.
No matter the age, the sport, indoors or outside, team pictures, individual portraits, or actions shots. I can get the photos you want for your wall or desk.
