Sara Vaughn completes in the Womens 3000 Meter Steeplechase very first round on day three of the 2020 U.S. Olympic Track & & Field Team Trials at Hayward Field on June 20, 2021, in Eugene, Oregon.
The U.S. Olympic Track and Field Trials is a high-energy, high-emotion occasion that constantly produces compelling visuals as athletes try to make the United States Olympic Team. Among my favorite remote cameras is of the steeplechase over the water barrier. It constantly supplies an interesting angle to a position that professional photographers are not able to be in with a handheld camera. The camera is fired using a remote trigger and covered with a rain cover. The splashing and chaos make for a peak action image that helps tell the story of the race.

Anthony Beauvillier of the New York Islanders commemorates after scoring the game-winning objective during the very first overtime period against the Tampa Bay Lightning in Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Semifinals throughout the 2021 Stanley Cup Playoffs at Nassau Coliseum on June 23, 2021, in Uniondale, New York.
As soon as again I discovered myself at what could have been the last game to be played at the Nassau Coliseum as the New York Islanders move to a brand-new arena next year. I would have chosen a head-on shot, Ill definitely take it as the celebration images told the story of video game 6 with the goal, sending out the Islanders into a Game 7 versus the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Catherine Carey, Beatriz Hatz, Femita Ayanbeku and Sydney Barta of the United States contend in the Womens 100 Meter Dash T44/64 Ambulatory last during the 2021 U.S. Paralympic Trials at Breck High School on June 18, 2021, in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
This year, I was fortunate to be sent to Minneapolis to cover the 2021 U.S. Paralympic Trials. This is a special event because of the real passion for sport and competition these athletes reveal. To produce this image, I really needed to borrow a ladder and get myself up high to shoot over a fence. The sun was very severe that day and the runners were perfectly backlit. My option was either to have the track white and entirely blown-out to expose for the runners or to try something various like a silhouette. Many of the races I pick to expose for the runners, but in this instance, I believed with the type of amputees and the spread of the field, the silhouette would look beautiful. Extreme contrast makes the image practically appear black and white but actually makes it pop.
