Nikon D4, 600mm, 1250iso, f4, 1/1600th, Manual

The last time I shot women’s soccer was during the 2008 Beijing Olympics where the woman brought home the gold. For this match against North Korea it wasn’t an elimination game (for USA at least) but the women would let it all hang out anyways!

After shooting five days around London I would be given the option to head a few hours north to Manchester to shoot USA women’s soccer at historic Old Trafford, home to the world famous football club Manchester United. On top of getting to shoot at such a historic venue I would also get to visit the city of Manchester. My response to my boss was, “yes please!”

After a very productive day shooting the mens cycling at Box Hill, I would find myself back out there the next day to shoot the women’s Road Cycling race. Going into it I knew it would be a disappointment compared to the previous day because the likelihood of coming up with as many cool looking shots without taking the easy way out and shooting in the same positions would be impossible.

One of my favorite parts about covering the Olympics is the opportunity to cover sports I never get the chance to shoot back home. Road Cycling would be added to the list of new sports for me to cover during the London Games.

I have a love hate with covering the Opening Ceremonies for the Olympics. On one hand its an incredibly long day as a photographer which results in you sitting in your position for up to six hours prior to it starting. On the other hand you get to witness incredible scenes and a fireworks show to die for. On with the show! (more…)

My second day in London for the Olympics would be quite an interesting day. Didn’t really shoot much but I will still post about the day that proved maybe I am a luckier guy than I already know!

After months of traveling to the Olympics in the back of my mind, the day finally came to board the plane to London for my second summer Olympics.

Since every TV channel, website and publication has done their moments/photos of the decade I decided I should probably do the same. While I am sure I am missing numerous worthy photos (due to a few dead hard drives and my laziness to scan negatives) here are 50 of my favorite images from the last decade. Enjoy!

Beyond all the successes and events I shot during 2008, nothing can compare to my 3 weeks in Beijing, China covering the 2008 Summer Olympics. It was my first Olympics and allowed me the chance to try and compete with the worlds best sports photographers. It was a very long, exciting, eye opening trip. Continue reading to see some of my favorite images from my trip.

Todays best of 2008 gallery brings us to my favorite dejection/reaction photos of the year. While not as happy and fun as celebration photos it is still very important to capture athletes at their worst.
