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.

Seal Beach Surf Championships

This past Saturday was a very busy, but great day. It started by heading out to Seal Beach to meet up with a facebook and sports shooting friend to shoot the Seal Beach Surf Championships.

We met around 7am and spent the morning shooting and talking, it was the perfect day being out side with great weather. I stayed until about 11am when it I had to get home and prepare for my daughters 18th birthday party, which turned out great, but let's get back to the surf.

I've never attended or shot a surfing contest and didn't really know what to expect. I've shot some surfing in the past and knew what to look for, so once it started I did what came naturally and that's capturing the action.

There were various heats consisting of 2-4 surfers at a time. Each of the surfers wore colored shirts so the judges could identify them, so throughout the heats various surfers would wear red, blue, yellow, and white shirts.

With that said I hope you enjoy the shots as much as I enjoyed taking.

Bolsa Chica Wet Lands

I love and have a strong passion for shooting sports at any level. I take great pride in not just capturing the action, but capturing the intensity in which the athletes I cover compete at.

But this post has nothing to do with sports, or does it. When I'm able I will find myself heading to one of two spots to shoot wildlife. One of these spots being the Bolsa Chica Wet Lands, which offers a wide variety of subject matter.

Now although my first love is sports action, I love getting out to shoot wildlife as I find it very relaxful being outside with my thoughts and all those critters that wander about while we go through our daily lives.

What does this has to do with sports, well nothing really, although I will say that while I'm out and about on one of my evening excursions, I will attempt to capture wildlife in a way to show more than just a picture but the beauty of being out among them.

Lakewood Varsity Basketball

Thought I'd share some shots from the last two games I covered for the Lakewood boys varsity basketball team.

I either need to get a new Mark IV or these dang high school need to get some better lights. Boy shooting in these dungeons really bites.
