It's not all honeymoons and puppies! In addition to those precious moments being captured, I also love sports photography, and the sport I love most is Soccer!
My wife and I have been ticket holders for the Seattle Sounders Football Club for three seasons now. When we first started going, it was all about the game - Go to the stadium, get some Ball Park Food™, find our seats, and proceed to stand for the next 90 minutes, cheering our fool heads off. And then I remembered that my love of soccer stemmed from growing up playing the sport. Grade school, High School, a little in college - Soccer, it seemed, was in my blood. And with that insider's knowledge of the sport, that eye that knew when to look, and where, I decided to combine my passion for the World's Game with my passion for Photography.
The first time I took a camera to the match (that's Football-ese for 'game'), I missed all the great moments - I was too excited to remember I had the camera! But it didn't take long before I was chanting and snapping pics at the same time. A dream for me is to one day take pictures on the pitch (more Football-ese for 'field') with a press-pass hung around my neck.
Until then, you'll find me in the stands, camera on a sling around my neck, snapping away, shutter a-blaze. If the lads are on the pitch, I'll do my best to get them on film!
