A November On the Road with the NCAA

December 13, 2012

Just wrapped up about six weeks of weekend NCAA championship travel and happy to be back in Colorado for a spell. Thought I’d share some of my favorite images from this last month or so at various MWC and NCAA Championships as well as a crack at surfing and a return to bike racing, which, for me, is where photography all began.

Mountain West Conference Indoor Track and Field

February 29, 2012

Championship season is in full swing. Track and Field for the Mountain West Conference is always a visual stimulus overload. I’m photographing one event and on the opposite side of the arena I hear cheering. I resist the temptation to run quickly over to see what’s going on at the weight throw. Be concise I think to myself. Choose something and stick with it long enough. That becomes the mental challenge of the event.

Mountain West Conference Baseball

June 2, 2011

Seven baseball games over three days. Two slices of pizza. Three In-N-Out burgers with fries. Several rumors of a rattlesnake on the field. Four to five San Diego State University student fans heckling non-stop for two games. Two consecutive nights chasing moments in fading evening sunlight. One surprise champion, the University of New Mexico.

Mountain West Conference Golf

May 24, 2011

It is amazing what a difference it makes to have a helpful client who aids in your coverage; a client who acts like your assignment is a team effort and they know they can play a critical role in making sure the project is a success.
Such is the case with the Mountain West Conference and it was never more evident than recently at the MWC Men’s Golf Championship down in Tucson, AZ. Their staff made it an enjoyable, successful event and I can’t wait to cover it again!

Mountain West Conference Basketball

March 25, 2011

For several years now Rich Clarkson and Associates have had the Mountain West Conference photography contract. In that time, we’ve come to expect big things from the annual basketball tournament typically held in bustling Las Vegas, Nevada. This year Jimmer Fredette was the big show. While photographing 16 games in a span of five days may be tough on the legs and back it was all worth it to see some fantastic Men’s and Women’s basketball. These are a few of Jamie Schwaberow’s and my favorites from the games.

Mountain West Conference Women’s Soccer

November 10, 2010

It’s 89 degrees. I’m on the top of a parking garage on the San Diego State University campus. Oh yeah, I flew in from Denver wearing jeans, a jacket, and a fleece vest. Time to go change. That particular parking garage roof is home to the very soccer field where the 2010 Mountain West Conference Women’s Soccer Championships were held. Three days of chaotic soccer action have me grinning ear to ear as the suns light becomes beautifully directional. I’m in photographic heaven. Enjoy some of my favorites.

Mountain West Conference Outdoor Track

May 19, 2010

Track is fantastic. As a photographer I feel there are more opportunities to make different images with this sport. It becomes visual overload and my job is to sort through it all and make sense of the entire event. Different moments,angles,and lighting play a large role in the final outcome of the images. My goal was to provide a strong visual representation for our client, which is the Mountain West Conference based in Colorado Springs,CO.
