Although the college basketball season is offically underway, I'm still in football mode. However, it's that time of the year where there are overlaps and I'll shoot football one Saturday, then basketball a few days later, then back to football, then....well, you get the idea.

Here are a few shots from the Loyola-Chicago at Kansas State game from Monday, November 14, 2011 at Bramlage Coliseum in Manhattan, Kan.

Thanks for looking.

Volleyball Samples

I find volleyball one of the most difficult sports to shoot. Lots of bodies in a very small area with half of the athletes on the court behind a net--tough to find focus and capture peak action.

If the facility allows for it, I prefer to shoot from an elevated angle. I find this helps me focus on players a little bit and helps clean up the backgrounds, which are mostly the floor and not rafters or people in the stands. Of course, shooting from such an elevated position almost requires longer (and fast) glass such as a 300/f2.8 or 400/f2.8 lens.

Here are a few samples. I believe these were all shot with a Sigma 120-300 lens on a Canon 1dMk2n body.

Pride of Wildcat Land Marching Band.

Here are a few of my favorite photos of the Kansas State University Pride of Wildcat Land Marching Band from October 29, 2011 in Manhattan, Kan. The first seven images were taken with a Canon 400/f2.8 lens on a 1dMk2 body and none of them have been cropped. The remaining six images were taken with a 15/f2.8 lens on the same body.

Thanks for looking.

A lens like the 400/f2.8 allows me to capture images of just about any musician on the field.

As the new band photographer for the Kansas State University Pride of Wildcat Land Marching Band, I'm excited to start the 2011 marching season. Last Saturday, August 20, 2011, the band marched across campus after their evening rehearsal and performed in the streets of Aggieville. It's always a fun time and means one thing..that it won't be long until their performing on the field before and during a K-State football game!

Thanks for looking.

2011 NHRA Summer Nationals at Heartland Park Topeka

Here are a few images of the 2011 NHRA Summer Nationals at Heartland Park Topeka. This track is only minutes from my house so I always enjoy the opportunity to get a little rubber in my hair, have some nitro burn the nostrils and shoot a few really REALLY fast cars.

Thanks for looking!

Iowa State at Kansas State - Men's Basketball

K-State seniors Curtis Kelly and Jacob Pullen were recognized at the last home game of the 2010-11 season on Saturday, March 5, 2011 in Manhattan. It was a crazy season with all kinds of drama, twists and turns, but through it all I'm proud to have had the opportunity to shoot these two guys during their time at K-State.

Kansas at Kansas State - Men's Basketball

The Kansas Jayhawks were ranked number one for all of about seven hours before they lost to Kansas State, 84-68, in an ESPN Big Monday showdown in Manhattan.

I must say, this was maybe one of the most fun events I've shot, however I'm not entirely pleased with my "take" from the game.

Thanks for looking!

Baylor at Kansas State - Men's Basketball

Here are a few images from the Baylor at Kansas State men's basketball game on Monday, January 24, 2011 in Manhattan, Kan. I shot more wide-angle than I usually do and think I liked the change in perspective. Definitely helped with action right under the basket and right in front of me on the baseline.

Thanks for looking!

Texas Tech at Kansas State - Men's Basketball

Been a while since I've posted, but I finally have some time to post a few from tonight's Big 12 match-up between Texas Tech and Kansas State. K-State won the game rather handily, 94-60.

Thanks for looking.
