I was asked to photograph players at a fundraiser for the Owen Schlosser Tennis Scholarship at the University of Alberta. Pretty hard to say no as my daughters were both recipients of the scholarship this year. There were 161 players registered in a team tennis format that had 4 different competitive levels ranging from top players in Alberta to those that had just basically picked up a racquet. I managed to get an action shot of 147 of them. Here are a couple of shots and the rest can be found here:

Really like Number 1. Good capture of eyes and ball. Number 2 has a very busy background that I find distracting.

+1. Crop more of #1 off the right side and the bottom. Delete #2 because of the background.

Probably all told at least 16 hrs on court. It is fun though as I know most of the players.
