Photographed texas swimming invitational for University of Notre Dame. No underwater shooting positions but was able to get pretty close. Photographed mostly with canon 200-400 and 70-200 lens throughout the day.
Another basketball season has begun! Lots of excitement & crazy fans! Hope to see one more championship ring & banner in the rafters next year.
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
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.
It was Mack Brown’s last game as UT head coach. Lot of memories. Texas coach Mack Brown sings the school song after the game. I wished Texas beat Oregon since it was his last game.
Here’s my favorite shot of the day: Texas Longhorns head coach Mack Brown celebrates with Texas Longhorns quarterback Case McCoy (6) after a touchdown
Spurs almost had their championship ring. Here’s some of my favorite photos: Tony Parker played really good game despite of his injury. For the first photo, I shot with Canon 24-70 mark II. I love the sharpness and contrast. Big improvement from mark I.
Here’s some of LeBron James and Dwyane Wade in different angles. I had to new 400 F2.8 Mark II and 600 F4 Mark II during the NBA finals.
Manu was both hero and heartbreak. But still he’s my favorite player on the court.Looks like Tim Duncan has no problem play several more years! I did not like this angle since the aisle was showing on the background.
Danny Green improved his play so much this season. He’s outstanding three point shooter
DeJuan Blair is a talented player. I really wish to see him more often next season.
