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.
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. Continue reading NHL: Ahhh…Back to Work→
I received a lot of positive feedback and questions regarding the image above that I posted from Game 4 of the 2012 NHL Playoffs Eastern Conference Finals, so even though it’s something just about every photographer covering the game is doing, I figured I’d put up a post about it, and maybe a young photographer gets some insight out of it. First off, RULE #1 — a remote camera is not a substitution for any kind of shooting you would normally do during an event. It should really only be considered a bonus or an add-on, I’ve seen them fail too often for unknown reasons. Never rely on them, but have fun with them. Now that that’s out of the way… Continue reading 2012 NHL Playoffs: A “Remote” Look at Game 4→
Posting up my images from Stanley Cup Playoffs Game 3 of the opening round series between the New Jersey Devils and the Florida Panthers quickly, as I’m on a plane in a few hours to head off to Atlanta to begin coverage of UFC 145 for ESPN. Tonight started exactly according to plan for NJ, who jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the first 5 minutes of the game, however, that was it, and the wheels came off in a big way.

I could photograph these two teams playing every night, although I’m not sure they could hold up to playing each other that much. There’s just something different when they take to the ice against each other (especially when they are both good) and last night was no different. It also makes it easier to photograph regardless of the sport. Continue reading Rivalries→
Shot the Anaheim Ducks visit to the Rock last night, and the Devils continued to roll behind the renewed goaltending of sure-fire Hall of Famer Martin Brodeur, who is looking up to his old form. Brodeur made 36 stops and the Devils defeated the Ducks 3-2 in an OT shootout for their 7th win in their last 9 games. Continue reading PHOTOS: Brodeur, Devils Keep Rolling!→
Been on the NHL beat all month, and more specifically the NJ Devils beat. Last night, I shot the big local showdown, and potential playoff matchup between the Devils and their hated rivals across the river, the league leading NY Rangers. The game didn’t disappoint, big playoff atmosphere, lots of hitting, some good goaltending, and the nasty edge that always marks these games. Continue reading PHOTOS: Devils Top Rival Rangers→
