About two weeks ago after I covered my last high school basketball game I thought basketball season was over. But little to he hold the Bowling Green Falcons got a first round bye in the Womens National Invitational Tournament and would host Syracuse at home. This being one of very few tournaments held at Anderson Arena it turned out to be a very exciting game.

Sorry for the lack of posts lately. I have been so busy it’s not even funny. Between School, Football, and Work I barely have any free time. But this past weekend I made sure I cleared my schedule for an awesome opportunity to shooting Boxing in Youngstown, Ohio.
The #16 Ohio State Buckeyes were in town so I couldn’t pass down the opportunity. Little did I know would this be the best two days of shooting hockey that I have ever had! I covered #1 Notre Dame a few weeks ago and nothing compared to the big hitting Buckeyes of the Big Ten.
I got to the the arena pretty early because I wanted to set up a remote but I forgot my cable from the pocket wizards to the camera. Go figure! I guess next time I should check my bag before I head to a shoot next time.
It’s a New Year and I am off to a great start so far. I just started my new job as the contract photographer at the University of Toledo. I will be covering all kinds of sports and events that happen on campus. So to start my first assignment at the new job I shot Rhode Island who is 12-4 against Toledo who is 2 and well not so good.
Finally, basketball season is half way over! I am starting to get burned out with basketball because everything is starting to look the same and I have shot the same feature photos about ten times now. I have shot all levels of basketball, from NBA to JV. Having covered such a variety of competition levels, I have seen some crazy dunks to turnover every time a player gets the ball.
Being only 2 hours away from Cleveland I never have been to a Cleveland Cavaliers game. So I was watching Sports Center and I saw that the Cavs are about to be the first team in 12 years to be 16-0 at home since the Orlando Magic. So I quickly looked up their schedule to see when their next home game was against a big time team. Miami Heat was the perfect opportunity for two reasons get images of Lebron James and Dwayne Wade.
Yesterday I went to Cleveland to shoot the Cleveland Cavaliers agains the Miami Heat to get some stock photos of both Lebron and Dwayne Wade and i came home with some images I was extremly happy with, but it wasn’t until I saw the advertisment across the street from Quicken Loans Arena of a giant Lebron Nike poster of him doing the signature throw powder into the air prior to tip off.
With 2008 coming to an end, I went back and look through all of my photos and picked a dozen that I thought were really strong so here we go.
Lets start in May when I got the chance to shoot my first Major League Baseball game between the Detroit Tigers and New York Yankees. Tigers Ryan Raburn slides safely into home.
I would first like to start off that I have been neglecting the blog because its FINALS WEEK and time to buckle done for the final week so I can finish up strong.
On December 6th almost two weeks ago (oops!) I shot Perrysburg vs. St. Francis boys basketball. One thing about shooting high school basketball is you never know just how exciting its going to turn out, like this game did.
I was planning on getting there early to avoid traffic and work on getting stock images and player feature shots but that didn’t happen. I got stuck in traffic and made it there just before tip off.
I am going to stop jabbing on and just post some images because I have three more posts to get done!
