"Admiral, there be whales here!"

You think trying to capture a photo of a pulling guard in a nighttime high school football game is hard, try getting a shot of one of these guys feeding...

This is image is of one of a group of humpback whales practicing cooperative feeding north of Monterey Bay, California.

This feeding behavior is what you won't see while the whales are mating or giving birth in their winter homes, such as Maui, Hawaii.

Summer is all about turning krill into 1000s of lbs of fat to live on during the winter.  What you will see in Maui is more acrobatics as the males fight over the females or just engage in what seems to be a higher level of competitive or protective interaction.

Boerne-Champion Football vs Marble Falls

A Thursday night early start with lots of action. The Boerne-Champion Chargers came out on top with a lop-sided win, but as always there was great action to capture from both teams.

I can't make every game, so if you have a favorite player and would like full photojournalism style coverage of him or her at a particular game or event, please contact me to discuss your needs.

TMI Panthers vs Holy Cross

TMI, The Episcopal School of Texas, hosted Holy Cross on September 3rd and I was there.

Pretty nice light on Friday, but the clouds did close down the late afternoon sun earlier than I would have preferred, but the 600mm lens I've been using while the light permits continues to produce wonderful portraits with that beautiful creamy background.
