When photographing high school sports, I often try to look for a right instant of time to catch action or a look by an athlete or other patricipant that, I think, expresses the intensity of the sport.

Sometimes, what I shoot is an accident that still gives a photos that I like: A football player bringing down a runner by grasping just an ankle, the star of a volleyball participant or someone at a game caught up in the action.

Little things that I hope make a photo interesting to readers.
