2013 HS Baseball - Columbine at Arvada West

My first baseball game at Arvada West high school (two blocks from my home), was a very good one between the visiting Columbine Rebels team and the home team Wildcats.  It was a beautiful day for the weather postponed make up game. The home team Wildcats jumped on the scoreboard first as they plated 3 […]

2013 HS Baseball - Arvada West at Ralston Valley

What is it with all the snow!!!  For almost two weeks most of my shoots were canceled or postponed due to a bunch of snow.  It has been crazy these last couple weeks of April.  Finally, the sun was out and Ralston Valley was hosting a baseball game that I was going to be able […]

2013 MLS Seattle at Colorado

What a fun, and aggravating day.  After a week of canceled high school games due to snow, sitting at home watching the events unfolding in Boston, the weather warmed up and the Seattle Sounders traveled to Colorado to take on the Rapids.  I got to the stadium and was greeted with a relatively empty media […]

2013 Girls 4A HS Soccer - Green Mountain at Conifer

Finally, last Friday the snow cleared up enough to get back outside for some high school soccer.  I headed up to NAAC in Arvada to photograph the visiting Green Mountain Rams take on the Conifer Lobos on the snow surrounded pitch.  It was a pretty good game, but I am still having some sort of […]

2013 HS 5A Girls Soccer - Columbine at Standley Lake

On Friday I headed back up to NAAC to cover the 5A soccer match between the visiting Columbine Rebels and the Standley Lake Gators.  The weather was a crap shoot.  Every 5 minutes clouds would roll in and out so I went from shooting in shade to sunlight and back to shade all through the […]

2013 HS 5A Girls Soccer - Arvada West at Ralston Valley

I thought the USMNT game against Costa Rica was bad weather wise, but man, the match up at the North Area Athletic Complex on Monday night between the Arvada West Lady Wildcats and the host Lady Mustangs of Ralston Valley was something different.  The weather was suppose to be up to 70 degrees on Monday, […]

2013 HS 4A Girls Soccer - Arvada at Golden

Third game in three days, and this one was another blowout.  Golden was coming off a 4-1 loss to Valor Christian and Arvada was coming off of a 7-0 loss to Thomas Jefferson.  I was not expecting a great game, but I was not expecting a blow out.  Golden was a lot more than Arvada […]
