Audrey – A Star in the Making!

Hi Everyone,

I recently had a short opportunity to photograph another one of the rising stars in the Puget Sound youth soccer circles. Her name is Audrey. She is now 1o years old and already is quite the football master players. She dominates wherever she plays and often leads her team to victory.

Thank you to his parents, Steve and Lauri, for introducing us to this fine young lady. I look forward to watching her grow and mature into one of the most dominant players we’ve ever seen.

Blessings,

Chris.

Ryan – A Soccer Stud!!

Had a short opportunity to photograph one of the rising stars in the Puget Sound youth soccer circles. His name is Ryan. He is 8 years old and already is quite the football stud. He dominates midfield and often leads his team to victory.

PLU Football 16Oct29

I love shooting football!!!

These images are from a PLU (Pacific Lutheran University) vs. across town rivals UPS (University of Puget Sound) last last month. Fortunately, the weather held out and the sun even peaked out a bit. All in all, it was a very nice day and a great football game.

PLU won by-the-way.

Enjoy.

2016 Half Marathon

Hi Friends,

We happened to swing by the 2016 Fall City Half Marathon last month on a quick trip to Snoqualmie. Not to belabor a point, but the weather was horrible and we didn’t stick around. I happened to capture a few images from the start of the race and the end. Then we went home.

Enjoy.

Chris.

Cat’s Senior Shoot #4-Soccer

This has been a beautiful week for bright sunshine. I love rummaging through my glove compartment to find some much needed sun glasses:). Sun is not always a photographer’s best friend, though. It can be the source of washed out photos with squinty eyed subjects. That being said, Caitrin and I needed to get her soccer portraits out of the way before uniforms had to be turned in, so yesterday was the day. Cat (Caitrin’s field name) did her part by securing the school field and showing up with her uniform, letterman’s jacket, cleats and a ball. I brought all of my needed gear, except for a warm pair of gloves. I’ll make sure to put those in my camera bag for the next cold weather shoot. Here is what Cat and I came up with for some unusual still and action shots. I used the bright sun for some interesting busts and streaks. Thanks for braving the wind chill for me, Caitrin. Congratulations on a season record of 16 goals, 11 assists and the honor of All SPSL 1st team; the best way to end a great high school career!

Posted below are a few of my fav’s (click on the thumbnail to enlarge).

Enjoy and blessings,

Girls Soccer-FPHS vs. Sumner

It has been a great soccer season for the Franklin Pierce high School girls, and they are now preparing for the last couple of regular season games.  Looks like they will be on to the play offs in November! These ladies have put in great effort and tremendous sportsmanship this year. With all of their hard work and new coaching staff (thanks Coaches Green and Pich!) they are poised for a quality record this year. Please enjoy a few photos from Thursday’s game against the powerhouse, Sumner.

Go Cards!

Franklin Pierce vs Fife High School Football – Sports Photography

Good evening,

I had another opportunity to photograph a high school football game on Friday night. I love doing this and I welcome every opportunity to do so, except perhaps in the rain and wind (haha).

Anyway, this past Friday I was out at Franklin Pierce Stadium again to shoot the Franklin Pierce High School Cardinals as they matched up against the Fife Trojans. It was a very cold, foggy night as you can see in some of these photographs.  While the entire game wasn’t shrouded in fog, a good portion of it was.

Fife prevailed in this epic battle on the gridiron.

One of my favorite shots is the “portrait” of two Fife underclassmen. They approached me on the sideline and asked me to take their photography. Of course, fella’s, my pleasure. 🙂

Blessings,

Chris.

Shot of the Day 10/20/2013

I had another opportunity to photograph a high school football game on Friday night. I love doing this and I welcome every opportunity to do so, except perhaps in the rain and wind (haha).

Anyway, this past Friday I was out at Franklin Pierce Stadium again to shoot the Franklin Pierce High School Cardinals as they matched up against the Fife Trojans. It was a very cold, foggy night as this photograph illustrates. This was about 1/2 through the first period when a bank of fog started to roll in. While the entire game wasn’t shrouded in fog, a good portion of it was. When I post more photographs from this game later in the week, you’ll see a number of them with played veiled by the soupy substance.

I was shooting with my Nikon D800 with a 70-200mm lens. And yes, the fog was wreaking havoc with metering.

Until later, blessings.

Chris.
