Friday was Veteran’s Day. It was also the morning of the NCAA Southeast Regional Cross Country Championships. I won’t bore you with the details, but through some brief communication earlier in the week, I was hired by Middle Tennessee State, and FGCU to shoot the meet for them. In addition, Auburn ended up wanting to pay me for a few photos of their lead lady too.

At the finish

Following the cross country, I headed in to town to shoot my first basketball game of the season…

Mass chaos!

Saturday, I was hired to shoot the first round of the NCAA Women’s Soccer Tournament for Samford—FSU’s opponent.

Kuikka was on FIRE with the assists, and had some rather emphatic gestures too…

Cassie gave me a bit of a hard time when I told her I was shooting for Stamford.

But I still got more/better shots of her than I had all season.

I was pleased with what I shot. Getting a different perspective helped me get some new/different shots of FSU as well.

Then today, just for kicks and giggles, I headed out to shoot a bit of the FSU/UGA softball game that was here in town…
