Seahawks v Saints. Monday Night Football.

My earliest memory of Monday Night Football was the sounds of Al Michaels and Dan Dierdorf’s voices coming from the turn-dial color television in the family room of my family’s first house.  It was a small little TV with rabbit ears shooting out from behind the set.  I was too young to really understand football, but I remember watching it with my parents, and crashing into the couch with my nerf Seahawks football, which I still have.

A couple years later, I was in the basement of our new home, watching it with my dad on a little black and white turn-dial.  It happened to be the Monday Night game when Bo Jackson, one of the greatest Raider running backs of all time, busted his 80+ yard run in the Kingdome.  That sucked.

But I do remember beginning to dream of the day I would stand on the sidelines of the Kingdome as an NFL photographer.  Unfortunately the Kingdome was blown up.  But Century Link Field isn’t half bad.  Especially when it is [again] the loudest outdoor sports arena in the world.  Yup, we set the Guiness record again.  And on Monday Night?  You woulda thought it was a Superbowl game played at home with all the pregame anticipation.

I love the Saints.  Always have.  Even when they were the ‘Aints’.  But when they won the Superbowl a few years ago on my birthday, it was almost as awesome as if the Seahawks had won.  Obviously, I love the Seahawks a lot more.  But when the opportunity came up to shoot the Seahawks versus the Saints, the 2 best teams in the NFL, my dream was about to come true; 24 years in the making.  I have shot a few other games up to this point, but this one takes the cake.

I was hired to simply capture the game from the fan experience.  Meaning I use smaller lenses, climb up and down the aisles of the enture stadium, and just shoot what I see.

Oh, and there was another earthquake.  UW Seismologists confirmed that #BennettQuake is real.

Go Hawks.

    wow Jeff – the hawk capture was intense – how did you see that.
    The portraits of the fans, players and the cheerleaders add a fresh look at what
    goes on down there on the field – it is more intimate and less commercial.
    The hawk though, by far is intense – wow. Well done sir.
