2008 was a big year for me as a photographer. I transitioned from doing mostly still life and nature photography to doing my first portrait shoot. I also bought my Nikon D300 and a 80-200 f2.8 lens. Both of which I still have and still use to this day. 2008 was also the first year I started working for The Aegis newspaper. 

I bought the D300 and 80-200 because 2008 was also my first year I started shooting sports. From the moment I stepped onto the field of the first game I was instantly hooked. I knew immediately I wanted to do sports photography. Here are some photos from the first assignment I did for The Aegis newspaper.
