Rain or Shine…. I was there.

Many student-athletes playing football dream about playing in the NFL, and I always dreamed about photographing from the sidelines on an NFL football field. Well, today I was able to photograph the Blue-Grey All American Bowl at the Raymond James Stadium, home field for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. That’s good enough for me! Two Hernando…

On the Court and in the Dugout

Freelancing has given me a great opportunity to be able to photograph two types of photography I really enjoy nature and sports.

The first thing I did was not…

Soccer & Volleyball

If there is a chance to shoot sports when there is still day light left… I do my best to take advantage of that. Out on the field filling my galleries at MaxPreps. And of course every sports photographer goes through… missed shots, out of focused and not in the right spot….. This was the…

JV Football

I love being on the sidelines during JV games in fact, Middle School as well. This is the beginning athletic stage for the players and I feel at this stage its not about the win or loss it’s about the growth; game discipline, molding techniques and skills as well as defining the player. When photographing…

On the Green

While I will be covering more sports for Hernando Sun, writing articles and shooting photography at the same time can be challenging. Luckily for me, I have a golf enthusiast husband! What I would like to do differently with these articles is highlight more about the players personal reviews to make it their story. This…

It has been a while since I have been on the sidelines… and getting back into the swing of things is going to take a couple of games to get back into the rhythm. Tampa Bay Times coverage last night… this more intense then what I am used to from freelancing at Hernando Today and…
