Ashburn, VA (July 14, 2016) – It's been a true privilege to photograph high school sports in Loudoun County for the last four years. I've witnessed breathtaking moments, heartbreaking disappointments, thrilling victories, and stunning upsets. I've seen great team victories and brilliant individual championships. I've sat in a field bundled up waiting for cross country racers to run by, and I've hidden in the shade to avoid blistering June heat during the soccer playoffs.
I have loved every single minute of it.
To celebrate some special instances in time, I have published a gallery of 52 images that represents my favorite photos of the year that began in August 2015 and ended in June 2016. These photos aren't always technically perfect, but they capture something interesting or emotional or athletic that makes me want to look at them over and over. The photograph above is my favorite for the year because at the moment it was taken, every eye in the stadium was on the outcome of that catch. Take a look and enjoy!
