Been going through my sports files and decided to post some of my favorites from the last school year. Hope you like 'em :) .

For me, this guy is a money shot every time. He's great under the hoop and has fantastic expressions:

My god, that last shot Ian IS awsome! That is such a great action shot! :D very nice works my man! Your work humbles me.. :) I spend half the time posing models to make it seem "natural", you just watch it happen.. Very cool indeed!

Yeah, Chris, the thing I love about sports is that noone is paying attention to the camera. The other thing I love is the expressions. It's good work if you can get it :) . Thanks for the kind words :D .

PS - I wish I had your talent with portraits and models. I stink!

Absolutely! I hate shooting in the rain but I have come to love soccer in the rain for the pics it produces:

Your action shots are truly amazing. You always seem to have perfect timing.

LOL! I ended up buying the 1DmkIIn because I wasn't happy with the 20D regarding timing of shots. I wish I had perfect timing. Of course, the mkIIn helps :D . Thanks, Jay, you are too kind.

Wow Ian. Simply amazing. I'll echo Jay's sentiments on the soccor shots. You can really feel the action just by viewing them.

Great job of freezing the action forever in time. :thumb

Actually, it was very cool. I was invited to the sports banquet at the end of the school year and they had my shots on a 20' high screen in a slide show throughout. It was made up of the SID's faves from the year- about 60 shots. I guess I'm lucky that I have a good working relationship with the college (but wait til they see this year's proposal :eek). Thanks for the good words, Craig.

:blush Thanks, Cosmo. I put these up for critique on FM and I got an encyclopedia's worth on how to improve. :) And they're right :) . I'm not a "pro" yet. :D

Incredible action, Ian you've captured the "feel" of the moment in your shots, that's truly something special. Great work, I must have poor timing :)

Ian, those are some great shots... I also love the rain shot. And the golf shot is unusually good for golf.... ;) Its hard to get "excitement" in that sport.

Thanks, Mike. I hope to improve this coming year. Better camera, lenses flashes and hopefully technique :) .
