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.

Full coverage | Swimming Meet of Saints

Men’s swimming places first, women take third at Meet of Saints.

First rule for covering a swim meet: wear layers. I found that out the hard way. This was the first swim meet I’d ever been to, but coverage went smoothly. Swimming pictures are probably some of the hardest sports photos to take – you end up shooting 20 frames to get just one that you can use. Take a look at my story to see how I did for my first time around!
