Best of 2015 – Baltimore Ravens
2015 has come and gone and it’s time to look back and reflect on the experiences I’ve had. I finished up my 9th season as one of the team photographers for the Baltimore Ravens. I share that title with the Ravens other long time team photographer Phil Hoffmann. While Phil has been around from the beginning of the Ravens franchise and has seen many ups and downs, during my time with the team I’ve experienced mostly ups. My first year with the team in 2007, the Ravens went 5-11 and since then they have won a Super Bowl and only missed the playoffs one year. That is until this past year where they once again ended up 5-11.
During the Ravens many successful years I would often think about teams that would only win a handful of games and think, “Man, I wonder what it’s like to be a photographer for THAT team. That must be terrible.”
Well, now I know what it’s like…and you know what…it’s not terrible.
It’s great actually. It’s REALLY great.
Why? Because I love what I do and I am invested in being a part of this team and telling their story, no matter what happens.
Is winning MORE fun? Absolutely. But winning or losing never changes my approach or passion for doing my job.
That being said, here are my favorite moments from a roller coaster of a season.
