Texas A&M Kyle Stadium

Photographed Aggies vs Owls football at Texas A&M Kyle Stadium.  It was my first visit this year and noticed half of the stadium was newly renovated.  New media room, score board, and new light fixtures.  I photographed with canon 5D Mark III + 200-400 at unbelievable ISO 4000.  I wonder how the lighting will be when Texas A&M Kyle Stadium construction is complete in 2015.  Here’s some of my favorite shot:

Canon 200-400 – Ultimate soccer lens

Photographed MLS soccer using canon 200-400 lens.  It was a night game but with Canon’s newest cameras, photographing in high ISO was not a problem.  Plus lighting at Dynamos stadium was fantastic too.  For soccer, I think canon 200-400 is almost perfect lens.  It’s relatively fast & versatile – I used teleconverter a lot in this game.  We actually had more than 50% of chance of rain so I didn’t even bring other lens during the game.  I set up remote camera (by the TV station) to cover the other side of the goal.  Here’s some of the shots from the game.

Charlie Strong’s first game as head coach

Photographed Texas’s fist home game of the season.  It was also Charlie Strong’s first game as head coach.  I shot with 1D Mark IV with 200-400 during first qt.  Love the extra focal length with 1.3 crop factor.

UTSA football head coach

Photographed UTSA football head coach Larry Coker for USA Today.   I photographed several portraits in his office, practice fields and weight room.  My favorite photo was from UTSA football weight room .  I asked coach Larry Coker to show me some tricks with balls.  Lighting was not so great.  I had to use multiple strobes to light this place.  What a incredible story you can read more here

Becky Hammon

I was assigned cover feature story on Becky Hammon, the ex-WNBAer who became the first woman to join an NBA coaching staff.  Covered home game on Sunday and interview on Monday. I did quick portrait session with her before an interview.

NBA Finals

It’s been a really really long season for San Antonio Spurs.  I am sure most of the Spurs fans won’t forget last years Finals.  My photo editor handed me hard drive containing all the photos I took after game 5.  Wow I didn’t think I took this many photos.  Problems with covering big events like this is that I rarely get to look at my work.  Well, I managed to select some of my favorite photos:

During the Finals I work with USA Today Sports team including myself 3 photographers, 3 photo editors and 3 card runner/assistant

We all showed up ridiculously early and stayed late.  Lot of hard work but at the end it was all worth it.
