Work isn’t supposed to be this much fun, is it?
I’m very grateful to Brian Kratzer, the director of photography at the Columbia Missourian, for giving Amy Stroth and me the opportunity to travel to Arlington, Texas last week to shoot the Missouri Tigers in the 78th AT&T Cotton Bowl Classic. Amy and I were the photo sports editors for the 2013 season, and after watching every game from the press box or newsroom, we finally got the chance to shoot a game ourselves. And what a game it was! For 4 hours and 19 minutes we ran up and down the sidelines trying to make pictures of the team we’d been following all season. At the end of the night, the Tigers raised the silver trophy as the confetti rained down, and nothing could have wiped the grins off both of our faces. It had been nearly 18 months since I’d last shot a college game, and I was just happy it didn’t take too long for the rust to come off.
You can see Amy’s coverage of the game on her blog. Someone should hire her quickly!
