College basketball photo shoot

I’m always on the lookout for that “different perspective.” After shooting tons of basketball games, many action shots start looking so much alike. Here’s a new perspective on the otherwise, boring shot of a free throw. I got lucky with the large American flag on the opposite wall just behind the other basket.

Photojournalism gives me the opportunity to tell stories of everyday events from my perspective. I enjoy that challenge.

Although I obviously have to get the “action” shots when covering a sporting event, I’m always on the look out for alternatively interesting shots. Here, I grabbed a shot of the George Fox University women’s soccer subs warming up during a time out.

Run, Forest, Run!

I always try and find that “alternative” view when shooting sports. Here, some high school cross country runners take off on a race.

A runner happily runs through a water sprinkler to cool off on a hot competition day.
