2015 Women’s Ice Hockey Beanpot

Hockey is always one of my favorite sports to shoot. While the men’s players in college are trying to show off for NHL scouts, the women’s players seem to play even harder as they vie for a spot on their country’s Olympic team. On this ice for this year’s women’s Beanpot finals between Boston College and Harvard were an number of Olympians. Harvard ended up winning, handing BC it’s first loss of the season.

Season Review: Major League Lacrosse

I spent the last season covering The Boston Cannons of Major League Lacrosse. Before the season, I had never covered a lacrosse game at any level, but it has become one of my favorite sports to shoot. The fast paced game mixed with the relaxed off-field atmosphere makes a lot of moments to capture. In addition, The Cannons play their home games at Harvard Stadium, a picturesque background for the intense games.

Here are some of my favorite photos from the season:

My Second Time Shooting Lacrosse: Harvard vs. Yale

You may have read my post last week, here, about my first time shooting (and watching) lacrosse.

A few days after the game, I was contacted by Harvard University to see if I’d like to cover their men’s lacrosse team play against Yale in the semifinal of The Ivy League Tournament at Harvard Stadium, setting me up to shoot my second lacrosse game.

Though I could be completely wrong, to my untrained eye the college game seems more fast paced and gritty, rather than the slower, tactic filled game of Major League Lacrosse.

This was also my first time shooting a night game at Harvard Stadium, which is a fantastic venue to shoot at. The light was great, and it offers amazing accessibility.

Here are some of my favorite photos from the game:
