HIGH SCHOOL BASEBALL PHOTOGRAPHY
I love taking my sports photographs and turning them into killer slideshows! There's something about adding music to some quick-cuts that really gets people hype, which, as a Baseball Photographer, is always an objective of mine. Here's the intro to the slideshow I created for the 2021 New Castle Red Hurricane Baseball team, who ended their journey by bringing home the first PIAA State Championship trophy in school history. Every Photograph used in this slideshow was taken by Jeff Palicki. Check out more hype videos here.

One of the perks of shooting photographs in a high school baseball team's dugout is the chance to capture up-close moments of intense emotional celebration. High school athletes have plenty of fun and a whole lot of passion.
I've said it before and I'll say it again: Making athletes look badass is what I do. I take high school athletes, that are simply taking pitches in a batting cage, and make them into the baddest looking dudes on earth.
Baseball Photography Pro Tip: Get down low when there's a runner on first and anticipate the pickoff play. The explosions of dirt make for some cool looking photographs.

In 2021, the New Castle High School Red Hurricane Baseball team brought home their first Pennsylvania State Championship trophy in school history. I will forever be grateful that I got to be a part of the journey as the team's photographer. I captured some glorious moments along the way, but I'm not sure that any of them top this one.

Oh, and I'm also a wizard of jersey swaps!
