Recent Photography Work (2016-17)

As a full-time photo editor, most of the time I travel to an event I never take out a camera, but from time to time I do get the opportunity to shoot.

I recently sat down and looked through some of the pictures I shot for Getty Images over the past year or so, and decided that I would share some of my favorites here. Thanks for checking them out!

Sports Shooter Academy XI (Costa Mesa, CA)

This past week I had the opportunity to participate in Sports Shooter Academy XI (The Coolest Sports Photography Event of the Year) and learn from some of the best photographers in the industry on subjects ranging from marketing to remote cameras.

During my five days in Costa Mesa, CA I shot a number of different sports, including surfing, football, water polo and basketball. During the week I learned more than I ever could have imagined — below is a small selection of some of my favorite images that I took during the workshop. 

Big thanks to the entire Sports Shooter Academy crew, Nikon USA (for lending me awesome gear) and all of the students who made this week such a great experience!

Shooting College Sports on a College Budget

I recently had my words and photographs featured on the Photo Brigade in an article discussing how I shoot college sports with a college budget, I've included an excerpt below and you can check out the entire article here!

"As a college student I have a hard enough time buying groceries, let alone funding my sports photography habit. I first became interested in photographing sports action during my first year at UCLA – a university with a wide range of Division I athletics, ranging from football and basketball to golf and sand volleyball. It wasn’t before long, however, that I realized that shooting college sports is not the easiest thing to do on a college student’s budget. Over the past four years I have worked more hours than I care to remember in food service (sandwiches, frozen yogurt, pretzels, you name it) in order to save up money for camera bodies and lenses."
