2012 A Year in Review

2012 A Year in Review

2012 NCAA Womens Basketball - New Mexico Lobos vs Colorado Buffaloes

For my last basketball game of 2012 I stayed after the Men’s game at Boulder to shoot the Women’s game (Colorado is ranked 23 in the AP poll) against the New Mexico Lobos. I was disappointed that so many people left after the Men’s game. It would have been nice to see more support for […]

On Thursday I shot what will probably be my last high school game for 2012 as the Pomona Panthers visited the Arvada West Wildcats. I got to the gym right before the start of the JV game, giving me plenty of time to set up my strobes. However, after I had everything set up, the […]

2012 HS Hockey Cherry Creek at Ralston Valley

I photographed the Ralston Valley and Cherry Creek hockey game on Tuesday night at the APEX Center in Arvada.  I was hoping for a good game after the last two Ralston Valley games I had photographed were blow outs by RV.  The last game for Ralston Valley was a away game against Standley Lake which […]

High School Hockey Valor Christian at Ralston Valley

On Tuesday night I made the trek over to the APEX Ice Arena for the Valor Christian and Ralston Valley hockey game.  I was hoping this would be a better game than the last RV game I covered where RV beat Lewis-Palmer 9-0. The talk before the game started was that Valor Christian was one […]

Monday night I headed the couple blocks over to Arvada West to shoot the girls varsity hoops team as they hosted Arapahoe. I am beginning to really like the A-West gym. It is big, has high bleachers and a good location for my strobes. The baselines are big, and people seem very nice. This was […]

The CU Buffaloes hosted the CSU Rams in the in state rivalry in front of a record crowd last Wednesday night.  Over 11,000 fans jammed into the Coors Event Center to watch the Buffs manhandle the Rams.  I guess you could say it was revenge for the Rams beating the CU Buffaloes in football earlier […]
