Colts vs Rams

Spent most of another fall Sunday in St. Louis to shoot the Colts vs Rams at the Edward Jones Dome. Colts pretty much had their way with the Rams and the game was never in doubt.

I enjoyed the chance to visit with former K-State lineman Ryan Lilja after the game. It's been fun to watch his career since he was at K-State.

Here are a few images from the game. Yep, there are a bunch of Peyton Manning; I will make no apologies for that. :)

Thanks for looking.

Colorado at Kansas State

Here are a few images from K-State's 20-6 win over Colorado on Saturday, October 24, 2009 at Bill Snyder Family Stadium in Manhattan, Kan. Finally had a day game to shoot. Clouds were in/out all day, but the weather was really nice. Had a great day and was actually able to grab some good food in the 'Ville after the game.

Thanks for looking.

Texas A&M at Kansas State

Those who know me have heard me say on more than one occasion there's no reason to play non-conference games on the road and no reason to play difficult non-conference games because the Big 12 schedule is brutal enough.

Take the last two weeks for K-State fans as a case in point. October 10 the Cats go to Lubbock and get whacked by Texas Tech, 68-14. It was 38-0 at the half. Fast forward one week and K-State is back home to face Texas A&M, a team with the nation's fourth ranked offense. Halftime score, K-State 38-0, A&M zero. Final score, 62-14. Go figure.

It was a stinky 6 p.m. kick-off, which means lighting was terrible for most for the game. I wouldn't necessarily care about the 6 p.m. kick-off as a fan, but for a photographer it's far from ideal. But we gotta work with it anyway. It was also Harley Day, which is always fun, but I'm kicking myself for the photos I got from that. Not good. Worst part about it is I have to wait a year to try again. Oh well, at least it wasn't a wedding!

Vikings vs Rams

It's been a couple of years since I've shot NFL and I was glad to be back on Sunday, October 11 in St. Louis. What a way to get back into it...getting to shoot future hall-of-famer Brett Favre. Yep, I came home with a lot of images of Brett Favre. Hey, it's Brett Favre. Even if I wasn't a football fan, as a photographer I'd have been a fool to not get lots of pics of him. The Vikings looked pretty darn good as they moved to 5-0 on the season with a 38-10 win.

For the photogs who are curious about this stuff...these were all shot with Canon MarkIIn and MarkII bodies and a 400/f2.8, 70-200/f2.8 and 20-35/f2.8 lenses. I've got a couple of Big 12 games between now and the next time I head to St. Louis, but I'm looking forward to shooting another future hall-of-famer (Peyton Manning).

Thanks for checking out the photos.

Kansas State vs Iowa State

Farmageddon v1 took place Saturday at Arrowhead Stadium when Kansas State played Iowa State in the first of a two-game series to be played there between the two schools. K-State came out on top, 24-23, when they blocked a PAT by Iowa State that would... have tied the game with less than a minute left to go in the game.
