Green Bay Wisconsin Photographer • NFL Football During Covid • Green Bay Packs Game Without Fans

If you would have told me when I walked off of Lambeau Field after the last home game of the 2019 season that the next Packers game I would shoot would be in an empty stadium and I’d be wearing a mask to help to protect me from a world wide pandemic, I would have said you’re nuts. I’ve shot a ton of Packers games over the years and I have a bunch of memories from those games I won’t soon forget, but Sunday’s game is one that will always stand out. Sunday’s game was my first Packers game during Covid. It was totally bizarre in so many ways to document the game in a stadium without fans. I’m usually shooting from field level, but during these times only the team photographers are allowed on the field; the few non-team photographers that are allowed in the stadium are shooting from the stands. Luckily the first row of seats at Lambeau aren’t that high off the field, so we didn’t have as severe of a downward angle as photographers in some other stadiums.

This was also my first sporting event since March 5th, so my skills may have been a tad rusty. Being on the field during a regular NFL game, you hear many things the average fan doesn’t, but that got taken to a new level on Sunday since there was only some faint piped in background noise which did little to disguise the crazy trashing talking between the players.

Thanks for looking!
