Sports in :60 | May 3, 2012

Sports in :60 – May 3, 2012.

Some updates on football and track and a plug for a baseball segment of the Locker Room. Just a note: I look like an oompa-loompa here because the white balance here is really off – we tried to fix it but the camera was just not cooperating that day.

Sports in :60 | April 26, 2012

Sports in :60 – April 26, 2012.

Some highlights from this segment included our softball team claiming the number one spot in the MIAC and the latest Locker Room segment featuring a few members of our rugby team, who talked about their newly-acquired club status and recent win against Carleton.

Softball sweeps St. Kate’s in doubleheader, captures 30th win.

A good game played by the Tommie women! I absolutely loved taking pictures during the golden hour for this story.

Story | Coach inducted to Hall of Fame

Hodgson inducted into hometown Hall of Fame.

I felt honored when I was assigned this story on swim coach Tom Hodgson’s induction into the Rochester Quarterbacks Club Hall of Fame. I had interviewed Hodgson for previous TommieMedia stories (my Paralympian Mallory Weggemann slideshow and a Locker Room segment) and had gotten to know what a kind and joyful individual, as well as fantastic coach, he is.

[Note:  the above picture is a shot from my Weggemann slideshow, but the picture used in the actual story is a submitted photo]

Video package | Varsity crew team

St. Thomas varsity crew team rows into spring season.

This video package was probably the most adventurous story I have undertaken for TommieMedia. Since I was still learning video (and was shooting it with a DSLR for the first time), our video editor Katherine Curtis came along with me. We braved wind, rain, and a very early morning to get these shots, but I was really happy with the way it turned out! I also designed the above rotator for my package.

Video package | Tommie Spotlight

Tommie Spotlight: Sarah Smith.

Even though my first video experience was shooting b-roll for the Locker Room, this one was my first video package! Tommie Spotlight is a feature TommieMedia does to highlight student athletes, and for this one, it was senior and basketball center player Sarah Smith. I actually knew her before this story was assigned – she’s a sweetheart.

The Locker Room | Swimming

The Locker Room with Tom Hodgson – March 1, 2012.

This was my first time ever hosting the Locker Room, a sports talk show where TommieMedia brings in coaches and players to talk about the season and upcoming games/meets. I got to interview swim coach Tom Hodgson and high achievers Emily Punyko and Sam Rauchwarter. It was also my first time using a real camera (and not just a flip cam) to shoot b-roll (the footage of the swimmers in this segment)! I was happy to finally try my hand at that.

Full coverage | Diving Invitational

Two divers clinch first-place finishes at St. Thomas Diving Invitational.

The St. Thomas diving team is small, but strong! Diving is one of the more fun sports to photograph, in my opinion.
