Aquamen

Winter high school championship season got here fast! Then again, it’s been pretty hard to keep track of winter this year, with unseasonably warm temperatures and zero snow on the ground. I got in to the swing of things with some boys swimming from the MIAA North Sectionals. I’ve shot a bunch of swimming before, but MIT’s pool actually let me get into an elevated position to get some clean backgrounds for some diving photos, too.

Here some samples!

Soccer Ballin’

So it’s high school sports championship season — usually a time of year when I get to shoot a lot of sports for the Boston Herald. And it happens three times a year!

Spiked

Being so busy lately means that there’s no shortage of material for me to put up here. The flip side is that it’s hard to time to post anything in a timely manner.

For example, here’s a few images from last week’s MIAA boys state volleyball playoffs, pitting neighboring rivals Newton South against Needham.

5.27.2010 — NEWTON, Mass. — Newton South's Brooks Remy (20) tries to block a spike from Needham's Ross Burdett in the South Sectional Semi-Finals on May 27, 2010. Newton South won, 3-2.
