Notre Dame comes from behind to beat BYU

I tried to mix things up a bit at today’s Notre Dame game. For the first ten minutes of the first quarter, I shot the action from the photo deck (the top of the press box). I always like a good overhead shot because it usually cleans up the backgrounds and offers a different perspective. It was a decent game for action, and the Irish came back for the win to stay perfect at 7-0 on the season. Next week I will be flying down to Oklahoma to photograph Notre Dame’s matchup with the Sooners.

Notre Dame blows out Hurricanes 41-3

Had the opportunity to drive over to Chicago’s Soldier Field this weekend to photograph Notre Dame’s blowout victory over Miami. Unfortunately I shot the game with a fever and felt like crap for the entire trip, but it was nonetheless a cool opportunity. I haven’t been to Soldier Field since I photographed a couple games there as an intern for the Peoria Journal Star back in the Fall of 2010.

Notre Dame defeats Purdue 20-17

I photographed my first-ever Notre Dame home football game on Saturday. I’ve heard that it’s quite an experience and it lived up to it. Not since I shot Indiana basketball in college have I seen such tradition and pageantry on display. I have to admit I was a bit rusty on the action this first game as I haven’t shot much sports lately. However, I think I’ll get back in the swing of things starting next Saturday at Michigan State. Stay tuned and thanks for looking.
