ALL ABOUT THE ACTION
T-ball at 10, football in high school, and intramurals in college. Thank goodness for the camera, in all honesty, I’m a better sports photographer than athlete.
Over the years, I have been hired to photograph NBA games, NFL games, little league baseball, adventure races, pro wakeboarding tour, 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 ice cream 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 and understanding rules and strategy is a huge advantage in sports photography. When a left handed batter steps up to the plate, I have a good idea where they 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 or across court. 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.
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.
The camera I use for sports & action photography is the Nikon D3 – it probably doesn’t mean much to you, but with that camera, I can capture 11 frames per second. And yes, that means I can shoot pretty much any type of action you can imagine. Anything from paintball matches to swim meets.
Some of my sports photography credits include; Denver Nuggets, Denver Broncos, Colorado Crush Arena Football, World Pro Wake Boarding Tour, American Motorcycle Racing, Colorado Crush Cheer leaders, World Superbike Racing, Nissan Xterra Challenge, Playboy Golf, High school track, Pro Soccer, AVP Volleyball, Paintball Tournies, and many many more.
