indomitable Team

The Sacramento Republic FC business office is in the old beatnik space on 17th and Broadway. We launched beatnik studios there in 2008 and began the process of pouring our hearts and souls into the walls of that building. After 5 years we purchased our own place at 723 S street in downtown Sacramento and hauled our business across town. When I walked into the Republic office for the first time after the move I couldn’t breath and almost broke into tears. My life for the previous 5 years had completely revolved around the brick and mortar sitting at 2421 17th street. I’m really happy that such a neat organization could take our place there, and I wish them the absolute best of luck.

So anyway, I decided to dust off the old soccer gun (canon 1d mark II), borrowed some long glass, and head out to see the Sacramento Republic vs Orlando City SC at Bonney Field in Sac. It was pretty cool to see such a high caliber of soccer against the backdrop of the state fair. Back in the day I made a living shooting competitive soccer so I know the drill pretty well. One rig on a monopod with something long like a 400mm 2.8 and a 2x extender, second rig over the shoulder with a 70 – 200mm 2.8 plus the 2x extender. That’s a lot of gear to be graceful with.. I had forgotten how hard it is to shoot with the big lenses; you really have to put in time to get good with them. The match was really fun and exciting. I saw a bunch of my soccer fan buddies in the stands cheering for our boys. Next time I’m going with a beer in my hand!
