High School Sailing Competition

One thing I have really come to enjoy about covering prep sports on the west coast is the difference of activities offered at these high schools than ones offered back when I was in high school in Illinois. A couple Saturday's ago, I got to cover a high school sailing race called the Keelhauler Regatta. The annual event is hosted by Cal State Maritime and draws numerous high school sailing teams from throughout the area. Definitely not your typical prep sport and not a bad way to spend a Saturday afternoon. -M

Women with Guns

Towards the end of December I went to photograph a woman that was starting a Womens Gun Club at a local shooting range. These photos are the second part of our coverage for that story. You can read the story here. Along with the initial portrait I shot of her, I also did a little photo story of her teaching the other women in the club. I grew up shooting rifles as a Boy Scout but had never actually shot a hand gun before. These ladies were kind enough to let me try one out. I can see why if holds so much interest for people. It was pretty fun to shoot.

The Sporting News of Fairfield

Holy smokes! I have been busy these last couple of weeks. So much so that I haven't had much free time to update on my blog. I continue to cover all of the local sporting events happening around Solano County. The winter seasons are beginning to wind down. Playoffs are upon us. Here are some of the more interesting shots I've made over the last couple of weeks. -M
