2014-2015 Green Bay Packers NFL Football Photos

To say I slacked at keeping my blog updated with photos from this NFL season would be an understatement. I blame it on a combination of busyness and laziness. I apologize to those of you who would visit regularly to see my photos from the games. I thought, with the Super Bowl being played this coming weekend, that now would be a good time to showcase some of my favorite shots from the season. I only missed two games this season because I had other assignments I had to shoot on game day. As always, it was a fun season and I am already looking forward to the next. Thanks for looking.

Just Andreas Salvesen : In studio soccer shoot.

A couple months back, I was contacted by a Division 1 soccer player from UW-Green Bay named Just Andreas Salvesen. Just had seen my work and wanted to know if I’d be willing to put together a photoshoot with him as the subject. I jumped right on board and got the ball rolling to put the shoot together. One of the biggest obstacles we faced was the changing weather. It started getting really cold in the last weeks of October forcing us to shoot in a studio environment. From a lighting standpoint, I liked this idea because I could easily control the way I wanted to light the shots easier in the studio. The environment was the biggest challenge. Aside from portrait style shots, Just also wanted some action shots. Well since soccer is played on grass and the studio we were shooting in didn’t have a grass floor, I needed to figure out a way to get grass. Luckily while I was shopping at my local home improvement store I happened to walk into the carpet section and found my solution. They happened to have a 9×12 foot remnant piece of fake turf. Bingo, I found the solution. The fake turf was the good stuff too, the kind that is hard to distinguish in a photo if it’s real or not. Once we had all the elements in place we did the shoot. I decided to shoot the action shots on a black background because I wanted Just to really pop out as the main element in the photos. After we got the action stuff out of the way we finished up the shoot with some nice portraits. All in all, Just and I were both happy with the results. Thanks for looking. Matt

UWGB Phoenix vs Wisconsin Badgers NCAA Mens College Basketball

Back in November I was assigned to cover the UWGB vs Wisconsin men’s college basketball game here at the Resch Center in Green Bay.  This game has become a regular pre-season match up for the past few years, and has historically always been a close game between the two schools. This years game was no exception.  The lead changed multiple times during the game which ultimately lead to the Badgers wining by only a margin of three points.  UWGB’s Keifer Sykes had an opportunity to tie the game up in the last second but unfortunately the shot he put up didn’t go in.  This matchup is always a great game to cover.  Not only is there a good deal of action, but the atmosphere is electric.  This year the game was a sell out, packing the Resch Center with the biggest crowd I have ever seen at a UWGB mens game.  Since this game the Phoenix have been on a roll and are currently in first place in the Horizon League conference. As for the Badgers, they have fallen from third in the AP top 25 pole to currently not even being ranked in the pole. Still, there is a lot of basketball left to play this season and things can change quickly in only a matter of a few games.  Here are my favorite shots from the game.  Thanks for looking.

P.S. I also shot a cool time lapse of the game for UWGB. You can find it at their web site by clicking the link below.

Green Bay Cellcom Marathon 2013

This past Sunday I had the opportunity to shoot the Green Bay Cellcom Marathon.  In the past couple years I shot and created a video from the race instead of shooting stills.  This year, as a change of pace, I went back to shooting stills.  The day couldn’t have been better for the race.  The light was good and the temps just about perfect.  One of my favorite things about shooting this race is the fact that you can pretty much point the camera in any direction and find a good picture.  That makes the waking up at 4:30 in the morning well worth it.  Here are my favorite shots.  Thanks for looking.
