Virginia Tech – Cassell Coliseum

This was the scene about 90 minutes before Virginia Tech’s game against Georgia Tech on February 9, 2015.  This is a great view of the inside of Cassell Coliseum.  It’s fun to get to a game early and see how different angles of the seats provide interesting views.  This game was a good one to be at also.  Georgia Tech was up by 10 points with under 5 minutes to go, but Virginia Tech kept chipping away at the margin and took the lead with 15 seconds left to play, going on to win by the score of 65-63.

Virginia Tech is a great place for portrait sessions too.

Virginia Tech Football vs Rutgers

This past Friday, December 28, 2012, I was in Orlando, Florida for the Russell Athletic Bowl that pitted Virginia Tech vs. Rutgers.  Below is one of the images that I liked, especially since it captured the heavy rain that fell all during the 4th quarter.  The image is of Virginia Tech running back J. C. Coleman (#4) using a stiff arm to ward off Rutgers’ defensive end Marvin Booker (#56) as quarterback Logan Thomas watches in the background. ***Added – Check out THIS photo from ESPN.  A photographer took a photo at this same instant, but from a different vantage point.***

Martinsville – Trace

I was fortunate to be able to shoot the Nascar Sprint Cup race at Martinsville today (Goody’s 500) and saw Trace Adkins…I even heard him talk to a couple of people with that DEEP voice.  Cool.

Christiansburg Basketball

This is a photograph of Zach Snell in action during the Virginia Group AA Division 4 State Semi-final game vs Potomac Falls.  It’s an effect that I’ve come up with to highlight sports and portraits combined.   What do you think?

Wrestling – Tough Sport

Wrestling is surely a tough sport, and this image just shows a glimpse of how it is.  This photograph was taken at the Virginia State Wrestling Championships at the Salem Civic Center on February 18, 2012.
