My Top Ten Sport Photographs of 2017

My past year of sport photography could be best described in one word: ‘exciting’.

I have been lucky to regularly capture game action for the Sheridan Bruins, join the OJHL Images team, photograph tournaments for Ontario Volleyball and Volleyball Canada, and more.

This is the time of year where I enjoy looking back, and reflecting on some of the work I’ve done. Below, you’ll find my ‘top ten’ favourite sport images of 2017!

Setting up a remote camera configuration requires some serious luck, and often results in hundreds of images of absolutely nothing.

When I checked my camera after this game, and realized I caught this top-corner free kick, my jaw dropped. It was one of the most rewarding moments I have had as a sport photographer, and my favourite image of 2017!
