You set up a remote shooting for USPW? Fantastic dedication sir. Great images.

Why'd you settle on 4.5?

Thanks, 4.5 from that height gives plenty of sharpness from the players head to the ice, and allowed me to keep my shutter speed high enough and iso low enough...some guys goto 5.6, but I've found 4.5 to be perfectly fine...

Why wouldn't I do one for USPW? I do them when on assignment for HBO or ESPN...when I'm shooting for someone I treat that client like they are my best client, that's why I continue to get called back, that's why I've been with HBO and ESPN for 6 years now...Utimately regardless of the client, it's your name under the image, put your best work out there regardless...

Sidenote, I wouldn't believe everything you read on message boards...

If you are not one of the base raters then I could see that.

Sadly I do not have to believe message boards, I have experienced it firsthand. What an insult that offer was when broken down not just hourly, but cost of doing business wise as well.


Great tip on the aperture size. I do a lot of soccer remote work so I am trying to find the magic number for night games to get shutter speed yet have more leeway in terms of where I pre-focus.

4.5 at a night game might work, might be tough though...it works at the hockey game because I'm way up in the catwalk and there is really no guessing in the focus, it's focused in warmups and your going off players height so nothing changes during the game, whereas with soccer your judging a spot where you think it's going to happen, much different animal...

Yes indeed, toss in the net and whether or not to keep it in focus by shooting very wide or to roll the dice and blur it out by zooming in and it is a tough shot to make.

Wow, I truly envy you. I want to photograph events like that for a living so bad. Great job on the overhead shots. I assume your son will be getting a raise of allowance for making that great game time decision!

Great setup. Great shots as well. I've dabbled in NAHL Junior games, but never had the curage to set up remote from above, only to stand on the cat walks during game action. Needless to say, I had the camera strapped to me tighter than I would a parachute.

These are fantastic !

As I watched the games in NJ, I saw a bunch of shooters in the corners especially the far side, left on the tv screen. I was figuring one of them might be you....but no ! you're up getting a nose-bleed. Lol.

Well done.

Cheers !
