Bellingham editorial photographer | Seattle Sounders photos

I had an assignment last week to cover a meeting of the Bellingham Border Boys, a Seattle Sounders fan club, while they watched the match against Dallas at McKay’s Taphouse/The Pizza Pipeline in Bellingham. It has been a while since I had an assignment where I had to just sit and focus on people and wait for their reactions. I knew my shots would happen when the game got close or the Sounders scored, and luckily, there was a lot of action in the game.

I like the contrast in the two images below. The first was made as the fans celebrated the Sounders’ first goal, while the second was made following Dallas’ second goal way late in the game.
