The one major plus of being a sport photographer shooting NFL football games during Covid times, is that my knees sure feel better after a Packers games. Over my career, my knees sure have taken a beating kneeling for multiple hours shooting sports. I don’t move around much shooting at Lambeau since my preferred shooting position is the end zone where I have an unblocked view of the entire field. Back in my younger days, I could easily spring up and grab a random feature or a Lambeau Leap, but now I’m guessing the fans in the north end zone of Lambeau think I’m a bajillion year old man as I struggle to get up after rigor mortis sets in to my knees during those cold weather games. This year is totally different; I’m sitting in the front row shooting just a few feet back from my usually spot and just a few feet higher. I’ll be happy to go back to field level when the NFL and the Packers rule it safe, but my knees will be disappointed.
Here are some of my favorite photos from covering the Monday night game between the Green Bay Packers and the Atlanta Falcons. The Packers defeated the Falcons to stay undefeated in the early NFL season at 4-0.
Thanks for looking!
