Monday Night Football in Detroit

Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson (81) makes a catch in the end zone but is out of bounds during the third quarter against the New York Giants at Ford Field.

Two football games in two different states, late nights and very little sleep, I was back in Detroit for Monday Night Football between the New York Giants at Detroit Lions. After 110 degree weather in Tampa it was a nice and cool 65 degrees inside Ford Field.

The game was kind of slow and sloppy but the Lions take home the W in Week 1.

NFL Week 1 in Tampa

NFL: Carolina Panthers at Tampa Bay Buccaneers

I jumped on a 8:30am flight to Tampa to shoot the Carolina Panthers at Tampa Bay Buccaneers. With only three hours of sleep, color addicted photographer Chip Litherland picked up me and chauffeured me around all day. Thanks brother, I guess I have to return the favor now!

The big news in Tampa was Cam Newton wouldn’t play due to his rib injury during the preseason and they team didn’t want to take any risk him getting injured further. The game was very sloppy and low scoring, but I still came with a few photos I am happy with and lots of stock photos.

Tonight I will be shooting Monday Night Football in Detroit as the New York Giants are in town.

Virginia Tech upsets #5 Ohio State

NCAA Football: Virginia Tech at Ohio State

Last night I kicked off sixth year covering college football and the Virginia Tech at Ohio State game lived up to the hype. Unranked Virginia Tech traveled to Columbus to face the #5 Buckeyes who lost senior quarterback Braxton Miller for the season due to a shoulder injury.

I witness an amazing sunset, a LeBron James sighting and high tempo offenses battle it out. Virginia Tech’s quarterback Michael Brewer handled the 107,000 screaming fans like he practices in the atmosphere ever day.

I am about to board a flight to Tampa to shoot the Carolina Panthers at Tampa Buccaneers games, so enjoy the photos.

NFL Preseason Week 4: Indianapolis Colts at Cincinnati Bengals

NFL: Preseason-Indianapolis Colts at Cincinnati Bengals

NFL Preseason week 4, where jobs are made or lost. All of the starts for the Colts and the Bengals didn’t even play, so most of the game I spent stalking the bench area shooting head shots for stock purposes and later use during the rest of the reason.

Annie & Tony’s Wedding | Sylvania, Ohio

AW4_7701

Congratulations to Annie and Tony Harmon on tying the knot and putting up with me all day! Annie and Tony got married on August 24th at St. Joseph Church in Sylvania, Ohio. Tony is a firefighter and he set it up, so we could stop by and take photos inside of the fire house which was an awesome location.

Annie and Tony left the rest up to me, so what do photographers do best? Scout locations. The best locations was a random houses in Sylvania front where where dozen of sunflowers where along the side of the road, which made for an awesome photo.

Thanks for having me! I had a blast!!

Preseason: Jacksonville Jaguars at Detroit Lions

NFL: Preseason-Jacksonville Jaguars at Detroit Lions

 

Week 3 of the NFL is upon us and that means the starters are playing well into the second quarter before they are replaced by rookies and other guys trying to make the team. The big story was Chad Henne and Blake Bortles battling it out at the quarterback position.

The photo above was 100% luck! I was editing photos and Reggie broke for a huge run and I grabbed my 70-200 and I was running along side of hime taking photos.

Overall it was a decent game.

Jeff Gordon wins at Michigan

NASCAR: Pure Michigan 400

After getting home at 3am from the Jets vs Bengals game I arrived at Michigan International Speedway at 10am to get ready to shoot the Pure Michigan 400. Michigan is quickly becoming one of my least favorite  tracks, the garages are awful, the racing is single file for most of the race and it’s in the middle of nowhere in Michigan.

In the above photo Jeff Gordon was giving a stuffed cheetah because he recorded the fastest time at Michigan International Speedway beating Kevin Harvick’s record in June.

Preseason: New York Jets at Cincinnati Bengals

NFL: Preseason-New York Jets at Cincinnati Bengals

This past weekend was a long one for me, NASCAR at Michigan International Speedway Friday, Saturday morning drive to Cincinnati for the Jets at Bengals game then drive back to Michigan for the NASCAR Race on Sunday afternoon.

The store line for the New York Jets is Geno Smith vs Michael Vick for the starting quarterback position. Also everyone wanted to see how Andy Dalton handled his self after signing six year $116 million dollar contract. Personally I think I could live off that for the rest of my life! :)
