I never cared for track and field when in school although I had to run and participate. But I really love taking pictures at these events. This one makes me think of life. Some are content to watch. Some are content to run, but some people soar. So many things can ground us. Fear. Anger. Stress that we just might fail and fall in front of the crowds watching, or the few watching. When I point my camera at the subject some times I get each of these moments with the press of my finger. It is easy to be removed from the great events happening in front of our lens, but I think the great photographers were able to capture what was in front of them while being a part of it was well. Sometimes they missed the moment in front of them but other times they soared. I want to soar.
If you need a photographer for your event, sports, wedding, graduation, or something else that you'd like to remember, contact me and I'll be happy to discuss your needs and see if we can work together.
