After covering the New England Patriots vs Detroit Lions game the night before, I had an early wake up call to jump in the car and drive to Bristol, TN for Bristol Night Race. Bristol is an awesome track because super small so it’s easy to get around, it’s super loud and it causes all of the drivers to get a high temper. Let’s get on with the photos.
The third preseason game for most NFL teams is the most important game. The starters play well into the third quarter. I had two objectives for this game, get good stock of Tom Brady and Tim Tebow. They were both harder then I thought due to the NFL allowing an 85 man roster during training camp instead of the in season of 52. The sidelines were just packed and it was hard to get clean backgrounds but I was able to walk away with some nice images from the game.
After a long day shooting NASCAR the previous day, I had a 5:30am wake up call to drive to Columbus to shoot Ohio State Buckeyes football practice. My editor told me to focus on Urban Meyer interacting with players. For only being at the practice for 45 minutes I came away with a handful of images that I liked. I can’t wait for college football to start!
NASCAR at Michigan International Speedway, it’s not the most exciting track but it’s a good race to cover with the NASCAR Chase coming up. Joey Logano brought home the victory! Enjoy!
Another NFL preseason game.. The Tennessee Titans traveled to Cincinnati to take on the Bengals. I was looking forward to this game due to the fact I have been watching Hard Knocks on HBO and I got to see some friends I haven’t seen for a while. Let’s get on with the game action.
Third NFL preseason game between the Detroit Lions and Cleveland Browns. Wasn’t much of a game due to the starters only playing a few downs, but the weiner dog race at half time made the game so much better!
My second NFL preseason game of 2013 was between the New York Jets and Detroit Lions in Detroit. I always enjoy covering the Jets because they are in a large market being from New York and there is always some kind of controversy.
The Pro Football Hall of Fame Enshrinement is the kick off to the 2013 NFL Season. This year seven members were inducted in to the Pro Football Hall of Fame make the total 280 members in the hall. This years enshrines were, Larry Allen, Cris Carter, Dave Robinson, Jonathan Ogden, Bill Parcells, Curley Culp, Warren Sapp. Pretty good group if you ask me.
Back in May I flew down to Birmingham, Alabama to do a shoot with a buddy of mine who is an aspiring rapper. Prior to me coming down he made a list of all the locations to shoot at. The album is called “White Street” which is located in Auburn where Justin went to school and he got the inspiration for making the mix tape. It was awesome to get out of my comfort zone of shooting sports and work in my portrait work.
