Before I began photographing high school seniors, I started my photography career by covering sports. I still like to cover a varsity game whenever I have the chance. I currently shoot video and stills for the CBS Sports’ high school site (MaxPreps). I was also fortunate enough to have one of my photos published in sportsillustrated.com last year.
Many of my seniors play field hockey so I’ll try to get to one of their games for some action shots. Here’s a few shots from a recent game between Green Run & Kempsville. Field Hockey on grass, at each school’s field, is a lot different than the fast paced action at the turf. The turf is the U.S. National Training Center. Each week, a few schools have their games there and it is the host to several district, regional and state championship games.
