The day has finally come! The Toledo Mud Hens will host the Louisville Bats to open the 2013 season in downtown Toledo! Just like any city with a MLB team, the whole city basically shuts down and heads downtown to to bars to drink with friends to kick off the summer!
A few months ago the NCAA announced they would be having a regional hockey game at the Huntington Center. Spending the last 5 month shooting the Walleye and getting familiar with hockey I wanted to see if the spend of the game changed from college to minor leagues.
The Toledo Walleye are in the 2013 Kelly Cup Playoffs looking to bring home the cup, and I wanted to share some of my favorite images I have captured during the regular season!
I have been shooting professional for six years now, and I have never enjoyed shooting hockey. It’s usually hard to get around the arena, the photo holes suck, the lighting sucks, the list goes on and on. But having the opportunity to be the team photographer for the Toledo Walleye changed my perspective on hockey and pushed me to create images that people have never seen before.
