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.

Lakewood Basketball

I've recently been asked to cover the Lakewood Varsity Boys basketball, which included a game played against Downey High in the Staples Center. Shooting at Staples was a great opportunity and experience. It was nice covering a high school game where I could get my shutter faster than 1/320 and didn't have to use a flash.

This first group of shots is from the lower class team (JV/Freshmen), who each played a 20 min scrimmage.

The rest of these shots are from the varsity game.

I would love to shoot action photography with you. What lenses do you use? I can never get anything like this when I shoot the kids in soccer.

Normally I just use my 300 f/2.8, but for this game I used both the 300 and my 70-200 f/2.8. Thanks for commenting Misty.

GREAT shots (as usual!)! LOVE that 3rd image - feels like it could be on a poster!
