Living in northwest Ohio my whole life, I have seen some really great sunsets. Sometimes I have my camera to capture them and sometimes I don’t. There are a few schools in the area that have some of the best sunsets behind a sports field.
Following covering two college football games in one day, I had to drive overnight from Bloomington to Cincinnati. I got to my hotel around 2:00am. When I woke up in the morning, I had a pleasant surprise, I had a killer view of Paul Brown Stadium and the Cincinnati skyline.
To this point, I have shot four college games and week three of college football would be no different! I would be shooting two college games in one day at two different stadiums. My first game was a noon kick off in West Lafayette for the Eastern Michigan vs Purdue game. I arrived to the stadium around 8:30am a little early so I took a little nap in my car due to not catching a lot of sleep the previous night.
It doesn’t matter how many college and NFL games I shoot each football season, high school football will always have a special place in my heart! The access is awesome and the best part is all of the kids enjoy having their picture taken!
Week 2 of college football, I was in Mount Pleasant, Michigan for the in state battle between Michigan State and Central Michigan. Michigan State defeated Central Michigan 44-7 at Kelly/Short Stadium. Enjoy the photos.
Following the IndyCar race in Baltimore Jackson Helms Smith and my self packed the car to head to Blacksburg, VA. We left around 9pm which should put is at the hotel around 3am. If you have ever been to the Baltimore/DC area it’s extremely confusing to drive around, five lane highways and the exits are sometimes to your left and sometimes to the right which makes it very confusing. So needless to say we got lost and made a giant loop around DC before we actually made our way to Blacksburg, VA.
Following the Ohio at Penn State game on Saturday, it was time to get back in the car and drive from State College to Baltimore. This time it would only be a 170 mile drive which is a walk in the park for someone who drives as much as I do. After covering three football games in three days in two different states, I was looking for a little bit of a change! I would be shooting the IndyCar race through the streets of downtown Baltimore Sunday!
IndyCar is my third favorite sport to shoot behind football and drag racing, the access is awesome and all of the drivers are super cool! The cars would be racing through the streets of downtown Baltimore. Anytime a race is in an area that has very well known landmarks it’s important to include those in your pictures!
Following the Boise State at Michigan State game Friday night, I decided it was time to pull the impossible! Drive 453 miles overnight from East Lansing, MI to State College, PA to shoot Bill O’Brien leading the Nittany Lions onto the field for the first time in 2012.
My first college football game of the season I was scheduled to shoot Boise State at Michigan. The game was scheduled for 8:00pm on Friday. I headed up to East Lansing Michigan around 3:00pm which should allow me plenty of time but as soon as I got to I-96 I was at a standstill. I was about an hour away and I wasn’t making any progress. After sitting in a parking lot I got off a exit and made my way through back roads until I got to the stadium.
