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:Feb 29 | Evan | No Comments |
I don’t mind when teams break out special uniforms for games. In fact, I wouldn’t mind seeing different shoes or jerseys more often. As you can tell by the design of this website, I’m a fan of the color grey. So it should come to no surprise that I loved the all grey UNC jerseys! Senior night at UNC was a great one to photograph.Jan 30 | Evan | No Comments |
The Georgia Tech vs University of North Carolina basketball game was part of The American Cancer Society’s Coaches vs. Cancer program. Carolina was sporting pink Air Jordans which looked great (but I’m glad they didn’t go with pink uniforms like they went with all grey for senior night). Like most basketball games, it was fun photographing this game as well and it’s always good when we can raise awareness for something like cancer research.Jan 26 | Evan | No Comments |
Rivalry games are always fun to photograph. When NCSU and UNC play, there is certainly a little more atmosphere in the Dean E. Smith Center than other games, besides the Duke game anyway! I’ve always felt that fans care way more about rivalries than the actually players do, I guess fan is short for fanatic!Jan 10 | Evan | No Comments |
As a University of Miami graduate but being born and raised a Tarheel, it’s always bittersweet for me when these two teams play. In football, I usually end of rooting for whichever team has the best chance to make a good bowl game, but it always seems like the underdog is always ruining the other teams season, making it worse for me. In basketball, I just hope for a good game and can find something good about either team winning! The image above was picked up by ESPN on their UNC Basketball Blog.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?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.Feb 23 | Evan | No Comments |
Wow! So much has gone since my last post that I really have not had any time to blog about it! Yes I really have been that busy, but the past 10 days or so were great, including everything from a business trip to Las Vegas to child portrait sessions and birthday parties to getting my own portrait done! More is coming real soon, but until then, check out this video from UM at UNC that shows a new way to show of my photos.

Japan has a festival for just about everything you can imagine. To be honest, most of them are over hyped and once you have seen one, you have seen them all. Of course, there are some exceptions. One of which being the Sapporo Snow Festival, which is in Sapporo every February. This was by far my favorite festival in Japan! The main attractions are the huge snow sculptures, some of which are functional, some artistic and some are both. Equally as cool, in the entertainment district Susukino, there are some amazing ice sculptures…the best of which are actually ice bars that open at night and serve hot drinks! Throughout my years of living in Japan, I only went once… now I wish I went every year and can’t wait until I get the chance to go back!Jan 17 | Evan | No Comments |
Last Saturday, I shot the the basketball game at the Dean Dome for the University of Miami Sports Information Department because Jack McClinton and the Miami Hurricanes came into town to play the UNC Tarheels. Having been out of the country for the past few years, it was the first NCAA game I had shot in a while! It took me a few plays to get the rust off, but I came away with some good shots and had a blast!
