Shark Infested Waters!

For many of you who follow my blog, you know that I come from a sports background. Part of my sports work involves being team photographer for the NHL's San Jose Sharks. Training Camp is now underway and last Friday the players reported for medical testing and photo day. This will start my 18th season with the franchise (I was hired before the start of our first season) and all of us with the organization are hoping this will be our Stanley Cup year! I figured a composite might give you a taste of what goes on behind the scenes. Rob Blake, a new acquisition from the Los Angeles Kings, is put through some poses (top left). Another new defenseman, Dan Boyle, poses on the set of Comcast who were taping what will become the introductions to our television broadcasts (top right). Forward Devin Setoguchi also tests his acting skills on the same set (bottom right). As much as I love shooting landscapes, these types of assignments carry their own challenges and rewards.
