Last season I was given the opportunity to shoot Georgia Tech by Woody Marshall at The Macon Telegraph. Living about 10 minutes from the stadium, I jumped at the opportunity even though I was a Georgia alum. When I shoot football, it doesn’t matter who I’m shooting, I’m there to get the best photos I can. Luckily for me, Tech had their best season in years and won the ACC Championship. Although I didn’t get to shoot the post season games, it made the regular season all that much more interesting.
There is something about shooting a winning team that is just more exhilarating than shooting a mediocre or losing team. As long time followers know, I shot UGA during 2007 when I worked for the Red & Black when they finished #2 in the polls. I’ve been lucky to have the opportunities I’ve had, especially in Georgia where there are two tradition-rich teams.
