Here is a recent assignment I had to shoot the ArenaCup title game at The Orleans Arena. The Spokane Shock defeated the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Pioneers 74-27 in what turned into a blowout. It was great shooting football again, even if it was arena football. It has been a few years since I photographed my last football game, and I really enjoyed photographing this one. When I worked for The Daily Item in Sunbury, PA I would photograph around four a week. It made me remember the times I had to drive all over coal country shooting various high school teams and colleges like Penn State and Bucknell. Maybe it made me feel a little sentimental to do that again, but not for long.
Les Grossman is a longtime concert promoter and entertainment executive who has worked with acts like The Who and Led Zepplin. He is such an interesting guy that he is portrayed by Tom Cruise in the movie Tropic Thunder. He lives on the edge of Vegas, so I decided to meet him at his home for the photo. I took a bunch of photos, but liked these the best because of a the great light you get at night in Las Vegas when the city's lights bounce off the clouds.
