Culver Indiana Sports Photography: Culver Middle School Track Meet

Yesterday afternoon, I got to shoot the Northern Indiana Middle School Conference Track Meet, which was held at Culver Community High School. This event was originally planned for Monday but rescheduled due to rain. Overall, I believe Culver did well. It is difficult to know for sure because there were so many events going on at the same time. I know that long-time family friend Amber Cowell easily won her hurdles qualifier and hurdles race. She was pretty spectacular to watch, and I did catch her in action. Way to go, Amber, you made the cover of this blog entry! And note how far ahead Amber is of her competition in this photo. 

I did the best that I could to shoot all of the events, but it was difficult because they happen at different ends of the field. And I have to tell you that I like shooting the action-oriented activities, such as jumping and hurdles. Some of these young people look like they can fly! I left before some of the relays and longer races happened because of my schedule and fading light. I look forward to another track meet. Following are some photos of the various participants and events. You can find others at



Culver Academy Track Photos: Culver Academy Track Meet

Yesterday afternoon, the rain cleared and for a little while, things were nice. I took advantage of the sunlight to go by the Culver Academy track meet against North Judson that involved both the boys and girls competing. (Some track meets are only one or the other.) Unfortunately, one event that I was hoping to shoot was canceled due to the winds. In yesterday’s meet, there was no pole vaulting.

This was my first track meet of the 2010 season. To be honest, they tend to intimidate me a little as there is so much going on and multiple events running at the same time. If you aren’t set up in the right place when an event starts, you’ve missed it. If you’re shooting a another event while a slower event or an event with fewer people is going on, we’ve probably missed that event as well. Ideally, to properly cover a track meet would require 2 or 3 photographers to cover all of the events. At yesterday’s meet, I covered what I could.

I’ve posted some of my favorites from the different events here. Others can be found at

Culver Academy Photographer: Track and Field Sectionals in Kokomo

Both Culver Academies and Culver Community High Schools had kids who made it to the Sectionals for Track and Field. I took a trip down to Kokomo to shoot the events. I was thankful for a sunny day. It’s a little overwhelming to shoot during a track event, as there are so many activities going on at one time. I enoyed it a great deal, however, as each event provides its own challenges. I’ll definitely be going back again next year and hoping to see as many kids compete at the sectionals and regionals.
