It’s 89 degrees. I’m on the top of a parking garage on the San Diego State University campus. Oh yeah, I flew in from Denver wearing jeans, a jacket, and a fleece vest. Time to go change. That particular parking garage roof is home to the very soccer field where the 2010 Mountain West Conference Women’s Soccer Championships were held. Three days of chaotic soccer action have me grinning ear to ear as the suns light becomes beautifully directional. I’m in photographic heaven. Enjoy some of my favorites.
The transition of summer’s warmth to autumn’s cold fall mornings can only mean one thing. Opening day in Colorado’s high country. Last year I had the distinct pleasure of catching opening day action. Loveland, the very first to open in North America, beat it’s neighbor over the pass Arapahoe Basin. This rowdy crew waited in the parking lot all night to successfully secure their first chair status. SKI Magazine picked up my image for a double-truck in their Fall 2010 issue. Here’s to large quantities of snow in the mountains this season.
A couple of months ago my co-worker, Steve Nowland, and I decided to shoot a quick promotional film for a local bike sharing program called B-Cycle here in Denver. We decided to go with the stop motion look and shot over 8,000 frames by the time it was all said and done. Some cameras were mounted to the bike itself while others were hand-held by Steve. We shot this in a day and pieced it together in Final Cut Pro in a couple more days. Have a look.
Denny turned thirty on Sunday. We gave him shots of whiskey and he gave us the gift of song. Cheers Denny.
Nothing overly special about lacrosse just the sheer fact that I’ve only managed to photograph it once before. That one time I quickly learned my lesson. Do not even attempt to make pictures behind the goal unless a very large bruise suites your fancy.
Lockdowns, allergies to chlorine, and a PT Cruiser. Three items that have never had much relevance to the Mountain West Conference Swimming and Diving Championships in Oklahoma City until last weekend. Here are a few images which hopefully show, in a diverse way, what it’s like to spend three days in a pool.
Not too many of these types left in the days of automated laser guided machinery. My goal with this overall cycling project has always been about the people behind the bike. This is Joe Depaemelaere. Much like a freelance photographer he is the marketing, production, human resources, builder,and general creative vision behind Primus Mootry Bicycles based in Longmont,Colorado. His craft started as a hobby and has progressed over the years. Please enjoy having a look into the shop. Thanks Joe.
This is it. I promise. There’s just so much to share and quite frankly I, like so many photographers, am admittedly a terrible self editor. Back to your regular scheduled programming. Oh yeah, for the record I did photograph Mr. Shaun White more but the dude has some serious issues with showing his true emotions at this event. He just thanks the crowd after taking gold and is shuffled out of the venue by his handlers and security.
Sometimes digital files are completely overwhelming. I managed to make 95 gigs of raw images in 5 short days. I’ve narrowed that down to just a couple more blog posts. Here’s number two. Thank you for looking.
