David Peaks – Civil War 2014

I had an opportunity to shoot the Civil War football game at Reser Stadium Saturday evening.  That was my first visit to the stadium and found the upgrade to be very nice.  The afternoon started out with a rain shower but we were able to be under cover.  By game time, there were clear skies but it got pretty cold as the game went on.  I was shooting with a new photographer to me, BJ Miller.  She was fun to shoot with and I’m sure she had some fantastic shots.

I find shooting the games this year to be memorable as this may be the last year we see Marcus Mariota playing for the Ducks.  You may see a number of Mariota photos in my post because we are huge Mariota fans.

This was a fun game to shoot as there were many moments to record for viewing later on.  Oregon has a number of fantastic players on the team and many provided photographic moments.  I am working with a new camera body and there are a few new features to learn but I was pleased overall.

I am looking forward to shooting the Pac 12 Championship game next Friday in Levi Stadium in Santa Calra, California.  I have reasonable expectations of the photos I hope to take.

I am a photographer that loves to shoot action. I have been a wildlife photographer for many years and recently decided to become a sports photographer. I love sports and to be able to capture the height of the action and the expressions on the players faces. It's a work in progress. I hope to shoot many sporting events in the years to come.
