All in all it was a pretty good game, starting with Seahawks player Michael Bennett wearing a Darth Vader mask during player introductions. The Seahawks defense pressure Manziel all day more photos after the break. Russell Wilson and Doug Baldwin continued to hook up for touchdowns at a ridiculous rate. More photos after the break.
Pope Francis declared a Jubilee year of Mercy and the Archbishop of Seattle, Peter Sartain, opened Holy Doors for all to pass through. I’m told, typically, only the archbishop passes through the doors. More photos after the break.
It is the third time that I have covered the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe Celebration, which starts at St. Mary Church and processes to the the Cathedral for a Mass celebrated by the Archbishop of Seattle, Peter Sartain. This year it was a bit of challenge since it rained pretty hard during the entire procession. More photos after the break.
It was a game with a lot of offense … for both the Seattle Seahawks and the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Seahawks secondary gave up more than 400 yards passing to Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers. The game saw Doug Baldwin score three touchdowns and the emergence of Thomas Rawls at running back. But the win came with the price of losing tight end Jimmy Graham to a season-ending injury and Roethlisberger leaving late in fourth quarter for concussion protocols. Especially sad was that Graham finally seemed to clicking with Russell Wilson/ More photos after the break.
It has been several years since I photographed the Apple Cup, but had the opportunity the day after Thanksgiving. I was looking forward to the game, watching Washington State put up big numbers and come from behind to beat several opponents, but a Falk-less Washington State team couldn’t come close the University of Washington. More photos after the break.
The University of Washington played an early season preseason game against Mount St. Mary University. I came away with some decent images. The UW team is young, starting four freshman and a senior, but should be fun to watch throughout the season. More photos after the break.
I had the opportunity to shoot portraits of the University of Washington women’s basketball team back in September. We shot head shots, some full length action shots and then some casual shots. The photos will be used in game programs and other media throughout the year. While all the photos turned out nicely and we shot a lot of photos, these are a few of my favorites. And my absolute favorite is the photo above. I have no idea was is happening, but there is an unadulterated pureness to it, from the reactions of players to the wardrobe. It cracks me up every time see it. I’m also fond of the photo below. Capture action shots on a seamless background can be difficult with one ball let alone two. A few more photos after the break.
