First off, a huge thank you must go out to my good friend, Pete Madia (http://www.petemadia.com/) for asking me to help cover a long day of shooting at the brand new Petersen Sports Complex in Oakland.

This past weekend I had the opportunity to shoot many games covering three sports in a 6-hour period – baseball, softball, and men’s and women’s soccer. The Petersen Sports Complex was open and free to the public for any and all events going on that day in order to introduce the new facilities. And they’re quite nice! Crispy clean backgrounds, gorgeous light, and friendly coaches and staff – what more could you ask for?!

I’ve included some of my favorites in tonight’s post. Enjoy!
