Tennis: State championships in Springfield

Galleries from Day 1 and Day 2 can be found at STLhighschoolsports.com.


I photographed the state tennis championships in Springfield this weekend. It worked out well since I was in town for┬áMissouri State’s homecoming and alumni association meetings, so I got a chance to photograph a new sport.

It’s not really new to me, but the last time I photographed tennis was in high school. Nonetheless, I feel the results turned out pretty well.

Cross Country: Suburban Conference Championships

I spent my Saturday morning with Chris Gove covering the Suburban Conference Championships. It was my first time covering cross country, so it was a lot of fun to try something new.

Full boys and girls galleries can be found on the Post-Dispatch/STLhighschoolsports.com site.

After the race there were a few good reaction shots:

My Favorite of 2015-2016 High School Sports

Now that the 2015-2016 high school sports season has officially concluded, I dug through my photos from this year to find some of my favorites.

Almost all were for STLhighschoolsports.com. I typically link to the stories, but there are far too many to go back and find for this post.

Enjoy!

My first track and field meet

I photographed and attended my first track and field meet ever Saturday. It’s a fun experience, but can be difficult to shoot with multiple events happening at one time and occasionally overlapping each other.

Here are a few of my favorite photos:
