Nike’s Clash of Champions

To promote the new Matthew Knight Arena at University of Oregon, Nike hosted a “Clash of the Champions” exhibition match between Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer, Maria Sharapova, and Victoria Aznarenka.  Serena Williams was supposed to attend, but had to pull out due to medical reasons.  Crazy thing, this was a basketball court that had been converted to a tennis court by laying the hardcourt surface on top.  I was worried that people were going to get hit by stray balls, since there was no walls around the court, but only a few stray balls made it to the spectators.

Here is a sample photo:

Another great photographer who features athletes from the University of Oregon is Zach Ancell.  His web site is – HERE and Here is one of his works:

Seth Casteel is making a splash with his underwater HD photography of dogs as they dive in after tennis balls. The results of his experiment have created an Internet sensation, with ball to ball coverage on blogs of all stripes, from ABC News to the Discovery Channel and throughout social media, primarily Facebook.

“I was photographing a little Cavalier King Charles Spaniel named Buster. We were meant to do an ‘on-land’ shoot in his backyard, but he decided he would play in the pool the entire time. Watching him jump in time after time after a sinking tennis ball, it occurred to me that I needed to see what that looked like,” explains Casteel. “I had no idea what to expect, but I just thought the results were so fascinating and fun.”

As the name of his business, Little Friends Photo, implies, Casteel specializes in pet photography. To say Casteel loves man’s best friend would be an understatement. Like photographers who specialize in human portraits, Casteel seeks to bring out the unique personality of each pet. Casteel’s experiment yields personality plus as determined dogs paddle their way to their play prey.

Here is a sample of his work:
