Are You Ready for Some Football… Tailgate Photos?

It’s March, so how about some football-related photos?

Last fall I had the opportunity to do some Corvallis event photography at the Sports Illustrated Go RVing Tailgate Tour as it made its stop at Reser Stadium before a football matchup between the Oregon State Beavers and Colorado Buffaloes.

The weather was quite wet but it as a fun event, with a variety of games and activities including corn hole games.

Former Oregon State Beaver and NFL player T.J. Houshmandzadeh was on hand for an interview and autograph session.

The OSU Beavers were playing the Colorado Buffaloes, and a chef from a restaurant in the Buffaloes’ hometown was on hand offering up one of his creations.

Despite the weather, all were in good spirits as guests were able to play games, check out some sweet RVs, win prizes, and more.

Have an event coming up soon and want some great images? Send me an email and let’s chat.

Washington State High School 4A Football Championship Game

Over the weekend I had the opportunity to photograph the Washington state 4A high school football championship game at the Tacoma Dome. While I don’t usually do sports photography it’s an area I’m exploring and I had a good time creating some images from the game. Here are a few favorites.

An Event of the Football Sort

I do a fair amount of event photography; thus far those events have been things such as parties, conferences, or other mostly-indoor affairs.

Last week I tried my hand at photographing a high school football game. I tagged along with Dave Scott to see what I could learn from someone who knows what he’s doing. What I learned is that I have much to learn. I did capture a few decent images; here are a couple of the action.
