This last weekend I had the opportunity to return as a photographer for the “Big Blue Bash,” an annual event held by the Salt Lake Chapter of the Cougar Club. My good friend Kelly Branan invited me along last year to co-shoot, and we repeated shooting this event together. It’s always a pleasure hanging out with Kelly, and the BBB is a fun event at which to capture photos.
The event typically features a couple of current players, a recognizable past player and some coaching staff that each share their thoughts on the upcoming season. This year didn’t disappoint featuring Head Coach Bronco Mendenhall, Tom Holmoe, Chad Lewis, JJ Diluigi and Brian Logan. MC’d by Greg Rubel and Blaine Fowler. This is a great event for Cougar fans north of Utah Valley put together by Chapter President Brad Jensen.
Everyone was talking about the possible conference changes, quarterback possibilities, etc. The short answer is that no answers were given Lots of fun talk though.
I look forward to this event now and appreciate being called on to help document the fun evening. Here are a few highlights out of the over 400 images I shot that night, of which just over 300 were delivered. This night was yet another situation where I was very happy to have the ability to shoot at 3200 ISO to deal with the very low light conditions typical to this kind of event.
And of course I have to post one “shooting-the-shooter” of Kelly at work
