If you go by the major freeways in Utah you'll see this beaut on the digital billboard/marquees around town. Caught this shot of goalie Igor Bobkov, before a morning skate at the Olympic Oval. It was tough to get this shot because aside from that gorgeous saturated multi-coloured lighting, it is incredibly dark in the tunnel, and I had to angle the camera in a way that I could neither use eye-view or live-view. Had to army crawl in front of him to get this perspective, much to his bemusement, and I really wish I could have gotten a little lower and a touch wider. But, hey, I got a great view of him that would amplify his height and build, and he had an equally great view of my...uh...low-cut shirt. It was a win-win.
I love my job, and I'm very fond of the athletes I work with. All images are ©copyright 1pen and my sports media company.You may NOT use, replicate, manipulate, or modify this image without my permission. All Rights Reserved.
