Above are a looping video and still images I shot for a recent story on the new safety rules governing high school soccer amid the coronavirus pandemic. These visuals accompanied a written story in The New York Times.
This was an interesting story to work on as the sport looks nothing like what we’re used to. Physical contact, slide tackles, headers, and throw-ins are now all considered penalties, so shooting the game took a different approach to illustrate those restrictions. I achieved the video clip of a goal being scored by clamping a remote camera to the top of the goal and hoping for the best.
Here is a link to the full story online, written by reporter Andrew Keh. A big thanks to the picture desk at the Times for having me shoot the story. It felt good to be shoot an assignment for the first time since college.
