Sportsball Photographer started last year when I became a season ticket holder for the Astros for the first time, I would go early to every game that I could to watch batting practice and try to interact with the players & get autographs when it dawned on me that it would be a great time to also take photos. I started taking my aging Nikon D90 that had fallen into misuse to games and quickly got the sports photography bug so invested in a Nikon D500 and some quality glass.
I was getting increasingly happy with my shots so I wanted to share them, at first I was just posting on my personal Instagram but I realized people hadn’t followed that camping & nature focused account to get flooded with sports photos so that is when I started @sportsballphotog, now I am starting this site as a companion to Instagram to better showcase my sports photography and to be able to tell more of a story through my photos with features such as interviews with players and human interest stories including some sports related travel, my aim is to show you the games, players, fans and all the action in between through my lens.
All content I feature will be original with my own photos, I expressly don’t want this site just to be a rehash of other news obtained from other news outlets, that is what Twitter is for. At first updates other than photos may not be that frequent but throughout the season I hope to produce more & more original content.
I am currently doing a lot of photography for local cricket leagues here in Houston with plans to expand to other sports in the near future, please check out my Portfolio and if you would like to hire me for an event please contact me.
