It’s been a great sports season so far! Once again, I had the privilege to take photos at UNC, NCSU and Duke basketball and football games, as well as the Carolina Hurricanes and Carolina Panthers. I had quite a few photos published online on various websites from small town publications to ESPN.com an SI.com. Also had some photos published in ESPN the Magazine and Sports Illustrated, including a two page feature in SI’s “leading off” pages. My personal highlight was photographing the ACC tournament and being on the court photographing (and celebrating with in spirit) when the school I graduated from won their first ACC Championship (go canes)! Below are a few of my favorites that were published:Dec 13 | Evan | No Comments |
The previous Carolina Panthers game I photographed for Cal Sport Media was hot and we had a huge rain storm but the Panthers got the win. This time, bitterly cold, windy and Panthers lost. Still got some great photos though! Like the one above which was featured on Zuma’s Press’s site as one of their pictures of the day. Here are a few of my favorites:Nov 27 | Evan | No Comments |
Not sure if I will go to a bowl game, so the Duke at UNC football may be the last NCAA football I photograph this season. I’ve enjoyed getting back to my roots of sports photography, especially college football which has a great atmosphere! Next football game is Atlanta at Carolina Panthers, anyone else going?Nov 27 | Evan | No Comments |
I’ve photographed a few Carolina Hurricanes Hockey games for Cal Sport Media and I decided to just combine two in one blog post. Haven’t had too many chances to photograph ice hockey, so it’s always fun to try something new!Oct 18 | Evan | No Comments |
I couldn’t have asked for more perfect weather for football than what we had last Saturday in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. About 70, beautiful Carolina Blue Skies, no humidity, just perfect. As somebody that grew up as a Tarheel, then went to the University of Miami for undergrad, when Miami and UNC play, I am always a little torn. I usually root for whichever team is having the better season so at least one of them can have a better chance to get a BCS, but it usually turns out they always ruin each other’s season. That being said, I’m never sad to see Miami win! Thanks again to Cal Sport Media for having me photograph for them.Oct 02 | Evan | No Comments |
After the summer was trying to last a little longer, I was very excited for a cool fall day at Carter-FInely Stadium to photograph the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets vs North Carolina State Wolfpack for Cal Sport Media. I was not so excited about NCSU students and fans playing cornhole all over the parking lot I had reseved parking in (who knew it was such a popular game)!Sep 25 | Evan | No Comments |
While photographing in the rain can be fun, when there is enough rain to issue flash flood warning and having to wade through about a foot of water to get to the field, not so much fun! Actually, who am I kidding, photographing any football game is fun and I was excited about photographing the Panthers game for Cal Sport Media.Sep 11 | Evan | No Comments |
Once again thanks to Cal Sport Media, I was photographing some NCAA football. This time might Stanford made their way into Durham to take on the Duke Blue Devils. While this would have been a great match up during most basketball seasons, I think we all knew where this one was headed…
It’s been a little while, but thanks to Cal Sport Media, I was back in Keenan Stadium today for the James Madison vs UNC football game today. It took me about a quarter to get back into the swing of the speed of NCAA football, but overall, I’m happy with what I came away with. Congrats to UNC on a great start to a season and to Bryn Reenner who set a UNC completion percentage record completing 22 out of 23 passes (95.7%), but actually, the one pass he didn’t complete was an interception, so technically 100% percent of his passes were caught today! Pretty incredible for anyone, let alone a first time starter!Jan 01 | Evan | No Comments |
First of all, happy new year to everyone! I hope your 2009 holiday season ended well and was a safe one! Hope 2010 brings everyone happiness and joy!
As for me, I spent most of my last week of 2009 at Cary Academy, photographing some great high school basketball. After being away from high school basketball for so long, it was really wonderful to see some exciting games and good players. There were 8 teams in both the girls and guys bracket at the 2009 Mission Sports Cary Academy Holiday Tournament, and I think I was able to watch/photograph at least a half of each of the 16 teams. Overall I was impressed with most of the teams, but I think my team from my senior year of high school could have played with and beat most of, if not all, of them! On that note, congratulations to the girls from Southern Durham High School and boys from Wayne Country Day!
For those teams in the tournament looking for more photos of the basketball tournament, they are located at my shop.Mar 18 | Evan | No Comments |
What started out as a cold, rainy, dismal day, turned out to be a beautiful day to be celebrated! Not only did the Carolina Railhawks defeat the MLS New England Revolution 1-0, but Carolina’s defender, Caleb Norkus, proposed to his girlfriend, Danielle Fernandez, just after Danielle sang the national anthem. By the photos below, you can probably guess what her answer was! Congratulations to both the Railhawks and to Caleb and Danielle!Mar 14 | Evan | No Comments |
March 7th, 2009 was the inaugural Get Your Rear in Gear 5k at Fred Fletcher Park, in Raleigh, North Carolina and I was the official photographer for the race that was raising awareness of colon and rectal cancer and positively impact screening rates. When I was in high school, I use to run track and cross country (although Satomi cannot believe I used to be able to run a 4:38 mile…actually, neither can I come to think of it) but this was my first time photographing a race. Overall it went well, but since I tried to take a few photos of every participant (over 600 of them) I easily ended up with over 3000 photographs in just over an hour! If you were a participant, or just want to see a lot of race photos, the photos from the Get Your Rear in Gear 5k are all over in my gallery.Feb 27 | Evan | 5 Comments |
A few weeks ago, on a beautiful Monday morning, I took some photos at the first practice of the season for the Carolina Railhawks. The Carolina RailHawks FC is an American professional soccer team, and a member of the USL First Division, the second tier of the American Soccer Pyramid. Starting from this upcoming season, I will be taking photographs for them! This is exciting because I have not had too many opportunities to shoot soccer. I shot some while at “The U” but not as much as basketball and football. Like just about every other kid, I played soccer for a while, so it will bring back some memories! The Railhawks play their first exhibition game Saturday, March 14th. Feb 10 | Evan | 1 Comment |
Once again, the University of Miami Hurricanes came to the state of North Carolina. Once again, I was asked to photograph the game between Miami and a North Carolina ACC foe. Once again, I was able to photography a great game and once again, Miami lost in overtime! At least I did manage to come away with some decent photographs.
