I shot my first Minor League baseball game of the year while the action wasn’t there but the light sure was nice. The game started at 5:30 so I arrived at the stadium around 4:30 enjoyed an awesome media lunch and some ice cream before it was time to head down to the field to start shooting features.

After being constricted to shooting inside dark dungy for almost two months covering college and high school basketball it was time to get out side in the nice weather (well kind of nice) and shoot some baseball.
I head over to Perrysburg High School to shoot the varsity baseball game. My original plan was to do a remote some were but I got there a little late and there wasn’t a really good spot to put it because most high school fields suck with shooting positions.
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.
Sorry for the lack of posts, I have been swamped with school and football and shooting and I am just getting around to updating the blog.
Wednesday night football on ESPN! Last night I got the opportunity to shoot the University of Toledo vs. Akron Zips at the Rubber Bowl in Akron, Ohio. I was quite excited to shoot college football because I haven’t been able to for a while due to work and school and me also playing for Toledo (#8 Kicker).
This was a game that I will be telling my childern 20 years from now. Now the Univesity of Toledo who lost their last 3 games and went into the Big House being a 17 point under dog and defeating the Universit of Michigan. Toledo was the first Mid American Conference team to beat Michigan. Being part of the football team makes it even a cooler experience, I didn’t dress for this game but I did travel with the team to the game. Being on the team gives me opportunites that most other photographers can’t get. I allowed to shoot in the locker room, I am allowed to stand right in with the team and just try different thing that most other photographers don’t get.
