Some of my favorite from the 2015 Rose Bowl, shot on assignment for ESPN: The Magazine. You have to love it when the only instruction you get from your editor is,”Go where other people aren’t.” Be different. Shoot different. Think different. Many thanks to Jim Surber for the marching orders–it’s so great to be able to go out to a game and know that you’re not expected to come back with 500 frames of the quarterback scrambling in the pocket (one or two are always nice though) or a key touchdown (and Lord knows Oregon provided ample opportunity for those). Next week it’s off to the national championship game, hopefully with the same instructions, the same approach, and some similar results.
