About Me

My photo
Long Beach, California, United States
Welcome to my blog. Looking through my posts you will find that I love and have a passion for photography and although my expertise so to speak is in Sports Action, I have been getting into wildlife and senior portraits. No matter what I'm shooting I want to bring my client the best possible shot I can and give them / you a photograph that you will cherish for a lifetime. If your looking for someone to capture your child in action, to show the intensity and emotion in which your child plays, look no further. Just drop me a line (e-mail) at homerkenpo@aol.com. I cover most areas in Southern Califoria.

Carson Colts "The little Guys"

One of my co-workers has a grandson who is playing pop-warner football and before this season started I offered to come out to a game and capture him in action. Well this last Saturday was the day. I received a call from my co-worker that this was their last game, so Saturday morning I went to a nearby high school to get her grandson in action. This young man played offense as Center and defense and the nose guard. These first few shots are of him in action.








Now this is what it's all about. I just love shooting youth sports. I've had said in the pass that the higher you get with youth sports and especially into high school the better the action, but there is nothing better than watching the little ones play sports. They may not provide a photographer with the best action, but they do play with intensity and most importantly, they are just so darn cute. You just look at these little guys with those big helmets. Here are a few sportraits of a few players.





Here are some hightlights from the game.
