Making the Best Out of a Bad Situation

As a photographer covering the NFL its your job to tell the story of the game? Well, yeah…but…

As a photojournalist your assignment is to capture the action and emotions of the game in an unbiased way. You photograph both teams, just trying to make great images and tell the story. It doesn’t really matter who comes out on top.

Well, as a team photographer, my assignment is a bit more challenging. Only 50% of that action and emotion has any use to my client…The Ravens

Although, I am shooting the game…I am really shooting the Ravens. My photos are published by the Ravens and exclusively seen by Ravens fans. So regardless of how good or bad the Ravens play, its my job to make images that are useable by the team and that interest those people who follow the team.

This was one of those games where that assignment was extremely challenging. Although the Ravens did have their moments the Steelers essentially controlled most of the game before ultimately winning with a field goal in the final seconds.

At the end of the day, I can’t control the outcome of the game. All I can do is let the action unfold and try to capture the images that benefit the team. Sometimes there are more..sometimes less.

Its challenging…and thats why its fun. Here is my take on the game…

Best of the Preseason

Ahhhh….smell that?

The smoke in the tunnel…the beer in the stands…the sweat on the field…smells like football.

Its my favorite time of year…the start of football season.

It really kicks off tonight, with the first regular season game against the Denver Broncos, but here is what the Ravens and I have been up to so far this year…enjoy
