Sports in 2015

The Games: I live in the South and the games are king.  That means it a big part of who we are. On any given weekend you can see trucks with team flags or babies wearing team colors.  Being a photojournalist means I am not only a photographer I am also and editor.  I edit when to press the shutter and I edit the images after the shoot.  This is not as easy as it seems. You see there is a lot of photographs and my job is to record images that tell the entire story which includes times not photographed.
