I got a call to shoot the FCIAC State Final game at “The Whale” in New Haven. No pressure!  I never photographed a hockey game before so I was like, yes!!! I will do it!! I was so excited to shoot, but the longest lens I had was a 24-105mm. One of my closest friends has a 70-200mm f.2 so I called him up and he said of course I can use it. Thank god for nice friends.For years he had this lens, and I always wanted to try it out. Now  was my opportunity. After getting a sense of where to position myself ( thanks youtube and the photographers from sports illustrated ) and a few pointers, I was ready to fire!  I hope you enjoy these hockey images, I really enjoyed the game and the fast action. It is a beautiful game to photograph and there is always excitement on the ice. Not bad for a first time right?

I was asked to shoot images for Seamens Moving with a couple of Bridgeport Sound Tigers players. This shoot will be on billboards in New York and Connecticut The shoot was one of the coldest days I could remember. Even though there was no snow on the ground it felt like it was -50.The wind was killer and after 20 minutes I think I had frost bite. The players Kevin Czuczman and Loic Leduc were fine, I think they were used to the cold.
