F&M Squash vs. Trinity 1/23

It was another challenging day of Squash. For both F&M and myself. Squash is one of the toughest sports for me to cover. Set remote, clean glass, find a white balance, stretch, don't whack anyone in the crowd with the camera. The box where it's played is the smallest arena for competition & there's no day dreaming with the speed of play. I so often sit at the corners and capture the backhand, so I posted a few of those - with a few others that I really like ...

Mt. St. Mary's Men's Basketball

Mt. St. Mary's dropped Sacred Heart 61-45 Thursday night in Emmitsburg. At half time they honored Coach Jim Phelan, who coached at the Mount for 49 years ending in 2003. Phelan is the 7th highest all time DI coach with 830 wins and was just inducted into the inaugural class of the NEC Hall of Fame. Following the game I made a photo with Phelan the present Mount men's team.

This week's Basketball

Ranging across a few Centennial Conference games, a little DI action, and ending on last night's Patch work ... here are my favorite basketball pics from the last seven days.

My Best of 2010

This year I continued to attempt "off-peak" images to balance a sometimes overwhelming volume of game action. So I've filed my favorites chronologically & separated them into two groups.


These Sports images contain game-action shots, including a few from new attempts such as Crew and Water Polo, as well as the ever challenging (for me) Squash.


This second group's focus is away from peak action. I've used the Editorial classification loosely, assembling images taken on & off field as well as some Commercial and Personal projects that I really like. Also this year, I began experimenting with Lightroom and there are a few enhanced examples here too.

It was an overall good year of challenging work that sent me all over the mid-atlantic and brought some new leads and adventures.

Thanks for stopping by. Feedback welcome.

The best sequence of the year = )

OK, it may be a bit early to call it the best of 2011. But I was stoked to find my favorites #4 & #5 fell into frame and focus. There was so much loose ball action Wednesday night at the Junker Center I almost thought I was shooting soccer. Here Behrend's Abby Henderson (10) & D'Youville's Ellen Remillard (1) battle it out at midcourt. The Lion's defensive pressure stunted the Spartans offensive and led to their 72 to 37 win.
