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.

Long Beach Middle School Cross Country

This past Friday Long Beach Unified School District held their middle school cross country event at Heartwell  Park and I was there to capture all of the excitement.  Its always a pleasure shooting these kids in action.  Look at these shots and tell me what you see, I see kids giving it their all and having fun.  For me, that's what shooting youth sports is all about.
The event started at just after 4pm with a 4th grade run followed with a 5th grade run.  At 5pm the main events started with the 6th grade girls followed by the 6th grade boys.  This continued with the 7th grade (girls / boys) and 8th grade (girls / boys), which started at 7pm.
Normally this cross country meet is held on Saturday mornings, but this year it was changed to Friday evenings, which gave me a whole different type of light to work and play with.  Well I simply went with the flow and worked with the light.
Hope you like the different look in these shots.
