Cool as Ice

I got the chance to photograph some hockey this week up in Everett as the Silvertips hosted the Portland Winterhawks. I was a little rusty shooting sports after not shooting an event since the Seahawks in December, but it was definitely fun, the speed and the rush of shooting right on the ice between is such a cool experience. Thanks so much to Chris Mast, the team photographer for the Silvertips for the opportunity.

Old Time Hockey!

I got to hit the ice last night and shoot my first hockey game. I love the game and watch it all the time but photographing it was a whole new experience. When you are at ice level right between the benches it’s a whole new game! You are right in the middle of all the shift changes and you need to keep your head on a swivel to make sure you don’t get a puck or a stick upside the head. the action is fast and furious and it took me a little bit to get the pace of it. I had a blast shooting it and managed to get a few decent shots. The Silvertips lost to the Victoria Royals 4-3 in overtime, but managed to clinch the 8th spot for the playoffs. Enjoy!
