Chicago Marathon: T2

This weekend I photographed the Chicago Marathon for the AIDS Foundation of Chicago’s Team to End AIDS (T2). It was a fun experience finding just over 130 runners in a sea of 45,000. At first I thought it was going to be a difficult task, but thanks to the unique design of their jersey, it wasn’t that hard after all.

Sports Lifestyle Advertising Campaign: T2

I’m so glad that I can finally share these images with you now that the ad campaign has been released!

At the end of winter, on a day when the temperature didn’t reach 10 degrees, I needed to create an ad campaign to promote an organization that competes in summertime athletic events to raise money for charity. Even though it was sunny on the day of our shoot, if I dared take the athletes on location, in no time at all it would have resulted in frostbite and frozen pained expressions.

One hockey game per day please

I was so happy that last nights Stanley Cub Game 2 only went 3.5 periods and not 48 like game one!

Blackhawks beat Bruins 4-1

When the puck dropped last night at the first game of the Stanley Cup, I had no idea what I was in for. After shooting nearly two games worth of hockey, it was over as the Blackhawks beat the Bruins 4-1.

Blackhawks thrash Red Wings, stave off elimination

The Blackhawks shot down the Redwings last night and they knocked the dust off of my wings. It has been months since I shot a NHL game and I was happy to find that shooting hockey was like riding a bicycle. I was telling another photographer last night that it took me a few years to figure out how to shoot the game. Once I figured out it was like shooting soccer, but you follow the puck and you follow from time to time where the puck was going, it got a lot easier.
