SPORTING EVENTS

We love sports! Our experience covering sporting events range from NFL, BMX, and Skateboarding, not to mention POP WARNER football. We continue to explore new adventures that brings our community one step closer to the action. Recognizing the importance of sports in our lives the RWM team strives to provide well prepared content that is relevant as well as interactive. We can bring value to your next team event. No matter the sport we are prepared to deliver an exceptional visual interpretation.

Sports photography is one of the few remaining pure forms of documentary photography. The moment happens and it is gone. You either capture it in an image or you don't. Unlike sports writers and television, still photographers don't have the luxury of instant replay. At its best, great sports photography captures not only the tremendous skills and abilities of the athletes in action, but also the passions and emotions of those involved in the game. The best sports photojournalism also tells the story of what happened in the game.

Sports and Action photography is all about timing. It's about reacting. It's about being in the right place at the right time and it's about execution. These are all qualities of the athlete and those of the photographer as well. Each sport has predictable and unpredictable moments. Under "Knowing your Sport", you will learn about these moments for individual sports. For instance, in basketball, you will have opportunities to photograph layups, jump shots, free throws, etc. Understanding the timing of these predictable actions allows you to capture the peak moment, when the action is most dramatic

OCEAN LAKES

EARLY CONTENDERS NATIONAL CAMPAIGN

Ocean Lakes High School was the site picked for this year’s MaxPreps Top 25 high school football rankings photo shoot with the returning Virginia state champion Dolphins. Once there we focused on two locations, one being the Varsity lock room and the second one was the football field. Our goal was to capture the true essence of football while making the images creative. The coaching staff was amazing in making sure we had everything we needed to make the locker room look like an actively used space by filling the lockers with practice equipment. We chose to wait later in the afternoon to shoot the players on the football field because we wanted the images to have a more dramatic look. The dark sky in combination with the field lights and strobe lights created a very interesting result. The players were really excited and were competing between themselves to give us the best pose of the day which shows why they have a great level of success…they compete in everything they do. Go Dolphins!

We would like to thank Coach Chris Scott and the Ocean Lakes football players Levonta Taylor, Khalan Laborn, Anthony Womack, Eric Crobsy, Tyler DeSue, Tajh Capehart, Justin Smith, and Noah Knapp for their amazing job and good luck on their upcoming football season.

COLLEGE BASKETBALL

PORTSMOUTH INVITATIONAL TOURNAMENT

Each year for 63 years the Portsmouth Invitational Tournament (P.I.T) has invited 64 of the best college basketball players (seniors) from across the nation to participate in a four-day, twelve game tournament in front of representatives from every NBA team. The tournament drew the attention of NBA Scouts and General Managers in the 1970’s when players like Rick Barry, Earl “The Pearl” Monroe, Dave Cowens, John Lucas and Bobby Cremins came to Portsmouth to play. Soon the word spread and approximately 200 Scouts, General Managers and Representatives of all 30 NBA teams began to come to see players like John Stockton, Dennis Rodman, Tim Hardaway, Scottie Pippen and others. Today scouts from numerous international leagues have joined in on the annual April pilgrimage to Portsmouth. Over the years the P.I.T. has been a showcase for five of the 50 greatest players in NBA History (Rick Barry, Earl ‘The Pearl” Monroe, Dave Cowens, John Stockton, Scottie Pippen) and for many others who have gone on to NBA stardom including 2015 NBA All-Star Jimmy Butler.

The P.I.T. has always claimed to be “more than a basketball tournament”. Each year the P.I.T. contributes back to the community by awarding five $4,000 scholarships to student athletes from Chesapeake, Norfolk, Portsmouth, Suffolk and Virginia Beach. In addition to the scholarships, approximately $11,500 from the tournament proceeds is presented to local non-profit organizations and charities to help them make a difference in the local community, creating a grand total of over $31,500 given back the community each year. The contributions and scholarships have risen significantly over the years thanks to the support of local sponsors, advertisers, ticket sales, the City of Portsmouth and the NBA. Of course, the more than 100 volunteers involved in producing the tournament have a special place in the success of this wonderful event each year. Together they all make this “more than a basketball tournament.”

Red Weasel Media RWM was there to capture all of the rim rocking action.

MEAC TOURNAMENT

NORFOLK, Va. --- Reginald Johnson and Brian Darden each scored 20 points and Deron Powers added 16 to lead Hampton University to an 82-61 win over Delaware State in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference championship at the Norfolk Scope. As a result, the Pirates (16-17), the Number 6 seed, receive an automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament. The pairings will be announced on Sunday.

The game was a battle in the first 20 minutes and featured seven ties and six lead changes. The Hornets (17-16), the Number 5 seed, jumped out to the early 15-6 lead on the scoring of Tyshwan Bell. But the Pirates settled down and went on an 11-2 run to tie the game at 17 from there, it turned into toe-to-toe battle as Johnson led the way with 14 first half points to help Hampton stay close. The score was deadlocked at 32 at the break.

COLLEGE BASKETBALL

WILLIAM AND MARY TRIBE

The William and Mary men’s basketball team led from start to finish and pushed its home-court winning streak to 14 games with a 77-58 victory over Elon on Wednesday night at Kaplan Arena. The Green and Gold shot 49 percent from the floor, knocked down 10 3-pointers and connected on 17-of-20 from the free throw line in outdistancing the Phoenix. W&M remained in first place in the CAA at 10-3 in league and 16-8 overall, while Elon dropped to 11-15 on the year and 3-10 in CAA play. Sophomore Omar Prewitt led the Tribe, scoring 18 of his game-high 19 points in the first half to go with seven rebounds, four assists and two blocked shots. Junior Sean Sheldon picked up his first career double-double with 11 points and 10 rebounds, while senior Marcus Thornton finished with 17 points and three assists.

The Tribe jumped out to an early advantage thanks in large part to the play of Prewitt and Sheldon. The duo combined for 24 of the Tribe’s opening 28 points as the Green and Gold opened up a double-digit advantage. W&M scored 11 of game’s first 13 points as four straight from Sheldon, including a pair of free throws, gave W&M the nine-point cushion. Freshman guard Connor Burchfield provided W&M with a huge lift off the bench, hitting back-to-back 3-pointers. A steal and fast break bucket from Thornton gave W&M a 17-point advantage and forced an Elon timeout. The Green and Gold run continued on a tough finish inside from Sheldon and a pair of Prewitt free throws, extending the lead to 42-21 with a minute left in the first half. W&M led by 19 at the intermission after shooting 51.7 percent (15-of-29), while limiting Elon to 36 percent (9-of-25) in the opening 20 minutes.

NORFOLK ADMIRALS

It didn’t take long for the scoring to get going, and the visitors capitalized first. Nick Drazenovic took the puck up ice into the Admirals’ zone and centered a pass to Conor Sheary, who shifted to his backhand and slid it past Norfolk goaltender John Gibson. Tom Kostopoulos earned the secondary assist at 4:19 to give the Penguins a 1-0 lead. The Admirals made it an even game early in the middle period. Chris Wagner controlled the puck in his own end and raced into the Penguins’ zone. Closing in on net minder Matt Murray, Wagner wristed a pass into the slot that deflected off a Penguin’s stick and into the back of the net. The centerman’s unassisted tally at 2:38 knotted up the contest at 1-1. Norfolk took the lead on the power play with just over two minutes to go. Kevin Gagne handled the puck at the point and shoveled it to Nic Kerdiles at the hash marks, who fired it on net. Murray stopped Kerdiles’ shot but gave up a big rebound that bounced right onto Andrew O’Brien’s stick in the left circle. O’Brien didn’t waste his chance, and slapped the puck home at 17:52 to give the Admirals a 2-1 lead.

Unfortunately for the Admirals, the Penguins got right back in it. With less than a minute remaining in the period, Andrew Ebbett, Drazenovic and Derrick Pouliot entered the offensive zone on an odd-man rush. Ebbett corralled the puck at the top of the left circle and released a rocket. The puck found twine top shelf at 19:22 and evened the game once more, 2-2. Wilkes-Barre/Scranton earned the go-ahead goal off a fluky play in the Admirals’ zone. Norfolk turned the puck over in the corner and Wilson emerged with it. Emerson Etem attempted to block Wilson’s shot, but the puck took an odd bounce off his stick and redirected into the net. The Penguins took a 3-2 advantage at 10:10 of the third period. The guests sealed the game with six seconds to go. Wagner won the draw cleanly just outside the zone, but the puck tracked all the way to the Admirals’ empty net. Ebbett was credited with the goal at 19:54 and Wilkes-Barre/Scranton captured the game, 4-2. Murray saved 27 of the 29 shots he encountered, while Gibson saved 29 of 33. Wilkes-Barre/Scranton went 0-for-6 on the power play, and Norfolk went 1-for-5 on the man-advantage. The Admirals close out their five-game home stand tomorrow night in a rematch against the Penguins; beginning at 7:30p.m. Red Weasel Media RWM was there to capture the action.

EAST COAST SURFING CHAMPIONSHIP

August 24th 1963, in Virginia Beach the first Virginia Beach Surfing Carnival was held by the Virginia Beach Junior Chamber of Commerce in cooperation with the Virginia Beach Surfing Club and local surf board dealers. At the 1963 Gilgo Beach party, the case was made by the Virginia Beach crowd to move the event to Virginia because it was a more central location and easier to get to for East Coast surfers from Maine to Florida. Virginia Beach was already well known and had a better chance to truly become an annual East Coast Championship contest. The year 1965 worked all this out and people were heading to Virginia Beach for nicer weather and more consistent waves. The name “Virginia Beach Surfing Carnival” was dropped in favor of “The East Coast Surfing Championships.” As the contest evolved, more events were added, and thus the name it is today, “The East Coast Surfing Championships and Beach Sports Festival.” For purposes of record keeping and clarity, the 47 years of ECSC are defined only from the First Jaycee sponsored surfing event in August 1963. The Virginia Beach event began one year after the Bell’s Beach Classic in Australia… recognized as the world’s oldest surfing competition. The Virginia Beach event later absorbed the unofficial Gilgo Beach contest and adopted its name. Thus today ECSC is the second-longest, continuously-run surfing contest in the world

The East Coast Surfing Championship is a weekend long annual event held at the Virginia Beach Oceanfront in august. This Event is filled with professional and amateur surfers from all over the globe. The ECSC as it is called also hosts a skateboard and bmx bike demonstration on a full vertical half-pipe ramp and a complete bmx course run full of mini jumps and trick stations. The skate and bmx demonstrations are set-up right on the sands of 1st Street and Rudee Inlet right alongside the surf competition. The ECSC draws a massive crowd of spectators and enthusiasts alike. The event also hosts a wide range of vendors from the local area as well as major brands such as Vitamin Water, Vans, Mountain Dew and many others. We have attended the ECSC the last few years and have always been amazed by the festivities and the competitions. The RWM team always manages to get right in the middle of the action waiting for the opportunity to capture those key moments that the ECSC has to offer.

REDSKINS TRAINING CAMP

The Washington Redskins, in partnership with Bon Secours Virginia Health System, the City of Richmond and the Virginia Governor’s Office, announced their training camp schedule, set to take place at the new world-class Bon Secours Washington Redskins Training Center from July 25 through August 16 in Richmond. With NFL training camp fully underway, the Washington Redskins have wasted no time formulating some intriguing story-lines early on to keep fans busy. Robert Griffin III has been most impressed with Aldrick Robinson, via sources of the Washington Post. After being drafted in the sixth round of the 2011 draft, Robinson spent his first season on the Redskins practice squad. Last year he was a part of the Redskins' 53-man roster, appearing in 15 games, starting two and hauling in 11 catches for 237 yards and three scores. Robinson isn't only important for this season, but for the future as well. Although he should be primarily used as a speedy field-stretcher in 2013, veteran Santana Moss is in the final year of his contract and Robinson has the opportunity to convince coaches this season that he's ready to step up.

There were several national media outlets and excited fans in attendance to see how the Redskins were shaping up for this year’s NFL season. Red Weasel Media was right in the middle of it all. We were able to capture RGIII taking snaps, drop backs, and even running their bread and butter read option play. His knee seemed to be holding up pretty well but sources working the event told us that RGIII will wear the knee brace all season as a precautionary measure. We also got some amazing pictures of the defense including Brian Orakpo's new face mask that had the Internet going crazy. The Redskins are working hard while having their eyes set on a Super Bowl run.

NORFOLK TIDES

The Norfolk Tides have long been an outstanding organization in the Hampton Roads community. Since the days of Met Park this organization has always been a family centered place for entertainment that all ages who love the game of baseball could come and enjoy. We decided to take a family day and enjoy America's favorite pastime, and in doing so we had cameras on hand to capture the game.

Sports photography has always been an area that we have always wanted to explore and the Norfolk Tides gave us that opportunity. Our approach was simply to get the best representation of an absolute fun filled day at the ballpark. In the middle of afternoon the glaring sun was beating down on us to the point we had no choice but to adjust our aperture on our cameras accordingly. The Nikon 70-300mm DX lense gave us the distance we needed to comfortably shoot the game. Faster shutter speeds are key when shooting this kind of motion in your subjects. White balance is also key when adjusting for the outdoors. No matter what camera you use knowing the basics of photography always helps to get a great shot.

We decided to take a family day and enjoy America's favorite pastime, and in doing so we had cameras on hand to capture the game.

Sports photography has always been an area that we have always wanted to explore and the Norfolk Tides gave us that opportunity. Our approach was simply to get the best representation of an absolute fun filled day at the ballpark. In the middle of afternoon the glaring sun was beating down on us to the point we had no choice but to adjust our aperture on our cameras accordingly. The Nikon 70-300mm DX lense gave us the distance we needed to comfortably shoot the game. Faster shutter speeds are key when shooting this kind of motion in your subjects. White balance is also key when adjusting for the outdoors. No matter what camera you use knowing the basics of photography always helps to get a great shot.
