Shot the New Jersey Devils win over the Ottawa Senators last night at the Prudential Center, and much like my golf game, I hacked it around all night. Devils touted rookie Reid Boucher scored his 1st NHL goal and I was on the wrong end of the ice. In the second, I left my spot with a couple minutes left to move some images and get set to run upstairs for the third and 30 seconds after I left Damien Brunner scored a goal…it was that kind of night.

But just like my golf game…

Well I have an off day, and I’m not on the road this week as I’ll be shooting the Broner-Malignaggi fight in Brooklyn this weekend, so I figured I’d update with some of my favorites from the last two weeks of my continuing journey in the world of sports photography.

** This is an update to a blog I did back in ’09

I was caught in the middle of a railroad track…Thunder!
I looked ’round, and I knew there was no turning back…Thunder!
My mind raced and I thought what could I do? Thunder!
And I knew there was no help, no help from you…Thunder!
Sound of the drums, beatin’ in my heart, the thunder of guns!
Tore me apart…
You’ve been – THUNDERSTRUCK!

GAA Gaelic Football: A Sunday in the Sun

May 5, 2013; Bronx, NY; USA; Leitrim Paul Brennan (10) is defended by New York Jason Kelly (11) during the first half at Gaelic Park.

Last year I had the opportunity to shoot my first GAA Gaelic Football match, at the time I had never even heard of Gaelic Football, but I had a great time covering the game between Sligo and New York. When I received the call this year to cover the Connacht SFC Quarter-Final match between Leitrim and New York this year I was downright excited. It’s a pretty wild sport to cover, a mixture of soccer, Australian rules football and basketball, while the setting inside Gaelic Park is more the atmosphere of a tailgate than a sporting event with grills creating smoke and smells that linger over the field, a lot of Irish folk with beer and elevated train cars.

In October of 2012, I was assigned to shoot the Brandon Rios vs Mike Alvarado fight at the Home Depot Center by HBO Boxing. It was thought it would be a good action fight, and it surpassed those expectations, landing several nominations for the Fight of the Year, and should have been, in my opinion, a unanimous selection.

On the Cover of “The Ring” – It’s ALWAYS Special

February 12, 2013; The latest issue of The Ring arrived at my doorstep, with my cover shot of Bernard Hopkins.  Grew up with this magazine, so it's always a fun one for me!
February 12, 2013; The latest issue of The Ring arrived at my doorstep, with my cover shot of Bernard Hopkins. Grew up with this magazine, so it’s always a fun one for me!

Wandered out to my mailbox yesterday to find the latest issue of “The Ring” awaiting me, and was greeted with a photo of mine gracing the cover once again. This was from a shoot I did with the legendary Bernard Hopkins a couple years ago in Philadelphia, PA. I grew up reading this magazine, so this is always a fun one for me.

Well the NHL and the players finally came to their collective senses and got back on the ice this past weekend, and thankfully sent many of us back to work on a regular basis! I was getting a bit restless sitting around and trying to fill time with other work. While my family is happy with the newly painted kid’s room, Kitchen and dining room, I was missing the time behind my camera. So this season I’m back on the New Jersey Devils beat again, and it got off to a pretty good start Tuesday night with home game #1.

Photos: Jets McElroy Adds Life to a Bad Game

Dec 2, 2012; East Rutherford, NJ, USA; New York Jets quarterback Greg McElroy (14) took over for much maligned QB Mark Sanchez in the third quarter and led the team on a touchdown drive to defeat the Arizona Cardinals 7-6 at MetLife Stadium. Photo: Ed Mulholland

Dragged my tired body to MetLife Stadium today to shoot the NFL game between the Arizona Cardinals and the New York Jets, after a late night covering the Austin Trout-Miguel Cotto fight at the Garden (more on that in another post). As expected, it played out like a game between two struggling teams is expected to go, multiple turnovers, missed field goals, and poor offense, until…

Fight of the Year: Brandon Rios & Mike Alvarado Go to War!

BACK AND FORTH — October 13, 2012; Carson, CA; USA; Brandon “Bam Bam” Rios (white trunks) and Mike Alvarado (blue trunks) trade punches during their 10 round fight at the Home Depot Center in Carson, CA. Ed Mulholland/HBO

I shot the much anticipated HBO Boxing after Dark card this past Saturday night in Carson, CA, and to say it lived up to expectations would be an understatement. In the main event, Nonito Donaire was impressive stopping Toshiaki Nishioka in the 10th round, but the real story was the co-feature between Brandon “Bam Bam” Rios and Mike Alvarado, which in all likelihood gave us 2012’s Fight of the Year.
