    Even though I had never shot a soccer match before (or what the rest of the world calls Football, or futball), I was totally psyched to get the opportunity to shoot the U.S. Men's National Team vs. El Salvador match played in my hometown of Tampa at Raymond James Stadium. [Click on the photos for much larger views]. I Needed Some Shooting Help Since this was my first time shooting soccer, I really wanted to get some shooting tips from someone who really knew the game, and knew how to shoot it, so I thought who better to ask than the guy who won the "Shooting from the Sidelines with Scott & Mike" contest, Alex Walker (who won the competition with a stunning shot of his son during a soccer match). Alex was incredibly gracious with his time and talents, and sent me not…

    Last Thursday I flew down to a very cool photo studio complex in Miami, near South Beach, for a photography training project I'm working on. Brad and I spent two days on location with a video crew filming behind the scenes footage of a bigger, more ambitious "Light it, Shoot it, Retouch it" project (that's one of our models---Jerrid shown above---click on him for a much larger view). Above: Stevie during a one light shoot with a very powerful turbo fan, run by Brad. We actually did 19 different photo shoots, setting up---and taping---each lighting set-up from scratch over a two day period, and we filmed segments in three different studios and on location on Miami's South Beach. We used everything from one light, two lights, to three lights, and quite a bit of off-camera wireless flash, too. We did shoots with scrims, diffusers,…

    Last night my buddy Erik Kuna and I got to shoot the Orlando Magic vs. Indiana Pacers NBA basketball game, and we had media passes that put us right under the basket (well, 6 or 8 feet to the right of it, anyway). It was my first time shooting NBA Basketball (well, for that matter, it was my first time shooting basketball) and as you might expect we had a blast!!!! (plus the Magic won!). I wanted to include the three-frame shot you see above of a slam dunk from Magic star Dwight Howard (who had a season-high 32 points in last night's game) but to really see it, you have to click on it for the larger version (I made it a little larger than usual, too). Although we had just an incredible time shooting the game, and I learned just a ton,…

    Man, did I start this year off right!!! I started by shooting the Outback Bowl (Auburn vs. Northwestern) on New Years Day for Southcreek Global Media (some of my favorites are shown below), and then on Saturday I caught a flight up to Detroit to shoot the Lions/Bears game at Ford Field on Sunday (I’ll post some of those Thursday). The Outback Bowl was kind of dicey because it rained just about the entire first half, so I had to use (and improvise) some rain gear. I had some Kata rain gear my buddy Dave had bought me a while back, and I used it to protect my D3, but I didn’t have anything to cover my 200-400mm lens, so I had to improvise with a black garbage bag and some rubberbands (it wasn’t pretty---but it worked). A note about protective rain gear: I…

    Yesterday (Sunday) morning, I caught an early flight to St. Louis, Missouri to shoot the Houston Texans at St. Louis Rams NFL football game at the Edward Jones dome. (Click on the photos for a larger view) Although I did shoot some of the game (when the Ram's offense was on the field), I was actually there on assignment to shoot starting Middle Linebacker James Laurinaitis (#55) shown below. Of course, as a linebacker James is on Defense, so when he was on the field, my job was just to isolate on him and hope he didn't wind up in a big crushing pile of guys where he'd get lost from a camera perspective, or that the play wasn't a quick slant to the far sideline where the receiver gets tackled right away, so James didn't need to get involved. The image above is…

    On Saturday morning, Brad, Matt, RC and I were very fortunate to be a part of the amazing Help-Portrait movement put together by  photographer Jeremy Cowart, and it truly is something special. I didn't realize how special Help-Portrait was until I actually participated this weekend. We were part of a group of photographers and retouchers that did portraits at Operation PAR, a women's drug abuse treatment center. There are about 70 women and their children that live in a 'village' operated by the center, and we had 17 photographers and assistants shooting, but just Matt, Brad and I doing all the editing, retouching, and output. We decided to do the printing as well, so we could deliver a finished 8x10 and a sheet with a 4x6" print and four wallet-sized prints, right there on the spot. The day really had it's ups and downs,…
