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 Track vs Millikan

League track has officially started and my first meet finds me at Lakewood High covering the Lakewood and Millikan meet.  Although it was a bit windy it was the perfect day to be out shooting.
Below you find my favorites - enjoy the shots.

CSULB Woman's Rugby vs UC Riverside

I had the privilege of covering Cal State University Long Beach's Women's Rugby game against UC Riverside this past Saturday at Cal State University.  There's something about watching a rugby game let alone a women's rugby game.  These young ladies play with heart and give it all on the field, its always fun watching and capturing the action.
Here are my favorites from the game.  I hope to get out there this next Sunday to shoot their game against CSU Northridge.
Enjoy the action

Recent outing to the Bolsa Chica Wetlands

Its been some time since I've been out to the wetlands so last weekend I decided to take a drive and have a much needed walk about.  The activity was low, but I was still able to come away with a few good shots.  On a huge plus note I was able to get a very nice shot of a female Harrier doing a flyby while hunting.  Always a pleasure to get a shot of one of these.

A day off :)

While sharing some recent sunset shots on facebook a few days ago it was suggested I take some sunrises, so yesterday I go up way to early and headed out to Huntington Beach for a sunrise, but while driving out there I really didn't see any cloud cover that would offer me a nice sunrise, so instead I drove to the Bolsa Chica Wetlands.  Thought I'd get some early bird photography in since I was already out.
While walking out to the middle of the wetlands prior to the sun rising I thought I'd do my sunset shot after all.  Its not what I started out to get, but it will have to do. 

After the sun came up and warmed me up a bit I took a few shots of a snowy white before heading out to Seal Beach to check on the surf.

Got to Seal Beach and the waves looked good with a lot of surfers out, so I hung out for awhile and took some shots.  It was a great morning and I was glad I woke up as early as I did to get out.  Normally I don't do mornings well, but this was perfect.

Huntington Beach / Seal Beach Sunsets

Thought I'd share a few shots from my recent trips to both Huntington Beach and Seal Beach.  Due to a few storms coming through Southern California the skies have been rather nice and have provided me with a wonderful canvas to create these shots.
In addition I love to play with my shots and did some playing in Topaz for a few, because if I can't have fun then why the hell am I doing this :)
