COPA America Centenario - B&W

 The 90 minute actual match is only a small portion of what everyone sees. COPA America Centenario has taken center stage in the USA, and how energetic and exciting it has been. Photographing from the first fans to the last interview, I have tried to capture it all during this historic tournament. Looking at all the intimate-behind-the-scenes moments is what is what really brings joy to the game. 

The Infamous Stringdusters

Thanks to a great friend, I was introduced to The Infamous Stringdusters, a bluegrass jam band that have some amazing chops. I highly recommend seeing them in concert as they really bring some tremendous energy to the stage that really transcends  into the audience. Here are some of my photos from their Chicago concert (at Park West), on March 11th. 

Bethlehem Steel vs. Syracuse University

Starting in April, Bethlehem Steel FC will begin their inaugural season. Being one of the most prized soccer clubs in the United States with a prosperous history, professional soccer will once again take place in the Lehigh Valley. The team is the Philadelphia Union's USL affiliate team. On March 6th, the BSFC took to the field with a tremendous 5-0 win in their first preseason game against Syracuse University. Here are some of my shots from that first game. 

Philadelphia Union Open Practice

Philadelphia's professional soccer team, Philadelphia Union, opens up its 7th season away on March 6th, vs. FC Dallas. The team held their annual open practice for fans before they depart for Florida for the rest of their preseason training. Taking these shots for KickTV, here some of my favorites from that late January day. P.s. Is it March yet? Doop!

Mummer's Day Parade 2016

Happy 2016! In true Philadelphian Mummers tradition, New Years Day starts off on Broad Street and ends on Two Street. All sorts of shades of color, both in fabric and personality for each comic, fancy, wench, and string band.
