I had the opportunity to be on the sidelines of the Seattle Seahawks versus New York Giants game in November. I have been going through all the photos from the game and picked a few photos that were some of my favorites and did the somewhat cliche edit of a black and white background with the subject in color. Due to the Seahawks dark uniforms this actually worked out pretty well on the first few edits, so I just kept going. Here’s a few of my edits from when the Seahawks destroyed the New York Giants at CenturyLink Field in Seattle. Enjoy and GO HAWKS!

A missed extra point and a field goal at the end of the game decided the outcome of the Meridian v. Mount Baker football game Oct. 24. Mount Baker’s Liam Short was an absolute beast with over 200 yards, but it wasn’t enough to stop Meridian. Here’s an except of the story from The Bellingham Herald reporter Joshua Hart “Mount Baker’s football team can wait another week to clinch the Northwest Conference 1A title because Friday, Oct. 18, is Meridian’s day. With four seconds left and the Mountaineers up 9-7, senior kicker Joel Escbach stood in front of the uprights with a 19-yard game-winning field goal try lying in wait. The Trojan, who only started kicking this year, waited through two timeouts and an offside. “Butterflies,” Escbach said of what he was feeling. “Everything, playoff hopes, this is all for my team right here.” Escbach hadn’t made a field goal in his football career before. But when Kevin Castro’s run came up a yard short of the end zone on third down, coach Bob Ames called on Escbach.” View the full photo gallery here Read the full story here
There was one heck of a football game Sept. 26, 2014 at Civic Stadium in Bellingham. It looked like Sehome was going to run away with the game, but that’s not how it all played out. Blaine made one heck of a comeback and took the win in the 4th Quarter. Here’s some words by The Bellingham Herald sports editor Dave Rasbach… There’s no disputing the raw speed of Sehome junior Taylor Rapp, but as quick as he is, he wasn’t the fastest thing on the Civic Stadium turf on Friday, Sept. 26. That honor belongs to the emotional roller coaster Blaine receiver Anthony Ball was on in the closing minutes of the Class 2A/3A Northwest Conference game between the Mariners and Borderites. With about two minutes remaining in regulation and his team trailing by six points, Ball broke behind the Sehome defensive backfield, hauled in a pass from quarterback Nathan Kramme and was running seemingly unchallenged toward the end zone and a 67-yard touchdown that would have tied the game and given his team a chance to take the lead with an extra point. Just a split second later, Ball’s dreams were dashed when Rapp refused to give up […]
Been kinda busy hunting for apartments in Seattle, buying a new car and preparing for the new job at DB Skimboards/DB Longboards, but I need to catch up on some blog posts. I also redid my website over the course of the weekend. I have really enjoyed my time capturing football photos this season thus far and before the season began I had the opportunity to meet some of the players. I spent a week capturing portraits of Whatcom County high school football players for the 2014 Bellingham Herald Football Preview section. I also ended up designing the cover of the special section also (you can see that above). Below you can see some of the portraits that ran inside the special section.
