On Saturday the Coeur d’Alene Viking JV and Varsity football teams played the Mercer Island Islanders from the Seattle area. I was very excited for these games, partly because I knew there would be some great action but mostly because I would be able to enjoy the rare treat of shooting a Varsity Football game during daylight hours! The lights that they use at Viking Stadium for night games are probably the best and brightest in North Idaho, but they cannot compete with daylight! Below you will find some shots from each game as well as links to the full galleries where you can view all the photos from each game and order your own prints or digital files!

Halftime featured a performance by the Viking Dance Team as well as some Junior Tackle action on the field.
To finish up check out this sequence, it took a awesome effort for the Islanders Matt Orehek to pull down this catch in the middle of great coverage by Coeur d’Alene’s Jackson Carslon (7) and Hayden Sharp (23).

This year Steve Russo and the staff at the Sandpoint Newsline took on the tack of creating and publishing the 2012 Sandpoint Bulldog Football Program. Steve and I are both sticklers for quality so when he contacted me about shooting some portraits for the program as well as for the upcoming September issue of the Newsline I was thrilled. The inside of the program also features many of my action photos and for every home game they will be publishing a new program featuring one of my action photos on the cover. Here are some of the published and unpublished photos from my shoot with the team.
We took a number of different vertical shots to give the Newsline plenty of options for the cover. We did some individual shots. . .
We squeezed did a group shot with 6 athletes and Coach Puailoa
And a couple of shots with three of the linemen
This is the one they ended up using, minus the victory bell.
We also did a couple of old school shots and I processed them with a grainy black and white look.
We ended the session with a lineup of linemen.
