    Here are 10 from opening ceremonies/Canada v. Sweden game.

    Still catching up on photos that weren't put on wire and filed. Shot every game of sledge hockey so far, so had a few games to try out some different stuff. Still haven't processed them yet, so it should be fun to see how they look :)

    Captions add to the hockey pics, but too lazy to copy them over. Goalie runs were used as Canada blew them out 10-1.
    Some good jube from the game too. Won't dig it out.
    Hockey was 5.6, 1000th for all I think.


    Not one for keeping photo swag from things, but the arm band's pretty cool

    Photo position for most of the Opening Ceremonies. Ran to opposite side up top to get Canada walking in.

    Will post up more when I have some time.
    Posting this from class as I have a mandatory one. Heading off to wheelchair curling soon once I grab a 600 or 1.7x from NPS.

    Meeting some awesome guys from Getty, AP, around the world. Most are top-notch guys/gals to talk to and great to hang around with.

    Nice shots man, I really wish the paralympics got some more cover. I know a bunch of guys on the USA's Mens wheelchair team and they definitely deserve the support and recognition the olympics get or at least some.

    Colleague of mine was hired by the US Paralympic Team to cover them.
    Have to admit, wheelchair curling is probably the toughest to make good photos... gonna try tonight to get something different.

    Hopefully more coverage is picked up as the games go on. We'll see..

    You need a separate one. Different stuff on the badge/armband too if you were trying to trick them ;)

    awww damn,
    the armband looks almost exactly the same!

    lighting at ubc is freakin great eh? plenty of light and AWB works great

    How about some ice level shooting? the plexi glass isn't that bad is it?

    I see one net is empty, throw a netcam in there!

    Been shooting through the glass quite a bit, and also through the corners/end where the board is plexiglass. Will post that stuff up later if I get some time. Sat in the corner for the Japan/Korea game last night getting some different stuff with the D3 24-70. Going back there with the 16 fish tomorrow.

    Getty got dibs on the net. If I feel adventurous I'll set up remote up top.
