The Boys are back

When I’m not working for my clients, my favourite thing to shoot is Ice Hockey. This sport is seriously awesome! The Fisherman has been playing for almost 20 years & I’ve barely missed a game in the 4 years we’ve been together. Late every Sunday night we head out to one of the few Sydney rinks & it’s often the highlight of my week.

The single most critical thing in sports photography is anticipating what will happen next. There’s nothing like nailing a shot of the puck hitting the net, or someone mid-air about to face plant into the ice.

The 2011 Ice Hockey season is only a couple of weeks away, so I thought I’d share a few of the highlights from 2010.

Note the size of the crowd…that’s considered a full house!

It really amazes me sometimes they don’t get injured more often.

    Great job catching the action, which can be really difficult to do for sports like hockey. I also love how the colors really pop against the white ice.

    We don’t get a lot of hockey here in Hawaii but it looks really cool. And cold.
