So it’s been a while since my last entry and I’m a little rusty at this, so here goes nothin’. It seems the best way to get back into the groove is to just write about what I’ve been up to and post a few photos along with it. Since December I’ve been shooting sports quite frequently, hockey, basketball and even some figure skating… I went down to Florida in search of some birds and made out like a bandit (next blog post)… Needless to say it’s been a great start to the year.
During the Christmas break the World Under-17 Hockey Challenge was held in Windsor and knowing this in advance I signed up for a press pass to cover for Our Windsor/ Metroland Media. With the pass I was given just about every luxury you can imagine and the ability to roam the rinks as I wished. At the WFCU Centre there’s a catwalk in the rafters and after signing a liability waiver I was let loose. It was scary at first, but even scarier was dangling a 70-200 2.8 over the edge to get the shots.
It sure was a treat picking up international jerseys and considering these are some of the best 17-year old hockey players out there, chances are these photos will be resurrected and given new life in the future.
