Seeing all galleries here, it's not hard to figure out that promoting soccer is a thing for me. With 3 daughters playing soccer, over the years I've captured a number of their games. As they started ball chasing I captured a number of DeForest High School games too along with their opponents. Recently I've had the opportunity to capture memories for the University of Wisconsin Badger's Men's and Women's soccer teams. If you would like your favorite local team or player's special sports moments preserved contact me.
While shooting a game typically I'm not focusing in on a specific player or players. I will tie in the atmosphere, the background and who was all in the play and how it developed. If you're near the ball chances are I'll capture you in a few shots preserving memories for as many as I can thus my capturing and posting most of the game and not limiting processing to "key" plays or awesome shots, however those are captured too. Shooting at 400mm one surely can focus in when desired.
Whether you're a mom or a dad, make sure to get to your daughter's games as often as possible. They grow older so fast and it will get away from you. If you live in an area that has a college soccer team, get out and support them too!
***Soccer has 3.5 Billion fans in the world while football only has 390 Million. Lack of promotion and awareness is the only thing holding back soccer in the U.S. from being a significant revenue generator.***
