Looking for a great gift for a ‘Cane? Give one of our prints this holiday season!
Football capped an exciting September by defeating USF 49-21 to move to 4-0 on the season. The month included the big win over the Gators and we documented the game with our latest time-lapse film, which can be seen in higher resolution on the front page of caneshooter.com for a limited time or on our YouTube channel with our other short films and time-lapse footage.
We also produced a commemorative print of the event from a still image pulled from the time-lapse. You can order a print here.
We collected so much material from the Florida and Savannah State games we split them into separate galleries. We also started to post the “best of” gallery from each game as the massive amount of material we needed to edit kept us from posting the games for a few days. All of the galleries from the 2013 football season can be accessed here.
Posting the time-lapse video on the caneshooter.com home page made us tweak the site a bit. We added controls for the embedded video and updated the fonts and gallery displays to show the available products.
I also shoot for the Office of Communications, and those events can be accessed here.
We recently passed 132,000 images online. If you made an 8×12 print and placed them end to end it would stretch to 25 miles!
Football has reported to #CanesCamp and we’ve covered portions of three practices, attempting to collect imagery on the newcomers as well as anything else interesting. We also uploaded a few images to our Instagram account that are not in our website galleries. You can see those galleries and the Instagram page below:

While shooting the soccer portraits, I wanted to show the girls examples from the 2005 Women’s Soccer cover shoot images, and I discovered they were never uploaded to caneshooter. After finding them in the archive I realized why. The sensor on the camera was filthy, and since the images were to be cut-out away from the background for the media guide cover, I had never cleaned them up. I spent over a dozen hours cleaning them up and uploaded them to caneshooter. While I was at it, I re-arranged the entire 2005 soccer season by event. You can view those images here:

Thursday I shot some images from the new Schwartz Center. I posted some preview pics on our Instagram account. I’m scheduled to re-shoot the facility and will post all images after that time.

* This season we’ve started placing all head shots in one gallery. Often times we shoot multiple sports and/or staff images along with a particular team in one session. This helps save us some valuable time.
We have finally completed editing all of our images from the ‘Canes 90-63 victory over the Duke Blue Devils last week, arguably the greatest game in Miami Basketball history. Here’s where you can find all of our edited material:
You can own a piece of Hurricanes Basketball history! This 15″ x 36″ panoramic print depicts a defining moment in ‘Canes history as the fans rushed the court after the dismantling of #1 ranked Duke by a stunning 27 points. If you were one of the 7972 fans in attendance or just watching on TV you’ll be able to re-live this moment for years to come. Printed on photo paper and shipped to you in a crush-proof tube, this print is priced at $49.99 + $7.00 shipping. Click here to order.
At yesterday’s Hurricanes Baseball Photo Day, I shot a series of portraits of seven student-athletes. In the never ending quest to create something different, I used the desktop version of an iPhone app used for the Hall of Fame portraits I shot earlier this year.

Our refurbished and expanded 11×14 gallery has arrived at Caneshooter.com.
Formerly part of the Canesport merchandise site, the expanded 11×14 gallery is a collection of over 200 our best and/or most popular images of the greatest ‘Canes of the past 20 years, spanning my time as a student and as the team photographer.
Many of the great ones are here, such as Andre Johnson holding up the Sears Trophy, Darren Krein saluting after a sack, Gino Toretta carried off the field on his teammates shoulders after the Heisman clinching San Diego State game, James Jackson flying over the opposition in the Micron Bowl, Jeremy Shockey celebrating after scoring the game-winning touchdown over FSU, Carlos Huerta and Leon Searcy during the 1991 National Championship Parade (before the car caught on fire!), Orien Harris standing over FSU’s Chris Rix in the 2003 mud bath, the “Flying ‘Canes” shot of Santana Moss and Andre King from the 2000 Gator Bowl, Sean Taylor returning an interception past a diving Gator, Taylor again nailing a Pitt receiver in mid-air, Vince Wilfork nailing FSU’s Leon Washington in the 2004 Orange Bowl and Sebastian the Ibis through the smoke with the American Flag.
There are also stock shots of Steve Walsh, Craig Erickson, Lamar Thomas, Warren Sapp, Al Blades, Antrel Rolle, Clinton Portis, Dan Morgan, Damione Lewis, Bubba Franks, Darryl Sharpton, Devin Hester, Donnell Bennett, Dwayne Johnson, Ed Reed, Edgerrin James, Frank Gore, Greg Olsen, Jarrett Payton, Jerome McDougle, Jimmy Graham, Jonathan Vilma, Joaquin Gonzalez, Kellen Winslow, Kelly Jennings, Ken Dorsey, Kennard Lang, Kenny Holmes, Michael Barrow, Najeh Davenport, Nate Brooks, Nate Webster, Ray Lewis, Reggie Wayne, Rocky McIntosh, Rohan Marley, Roscoe Parrish, Russell Maryland, Rusty Madearis, Yatil Green, Willis McGahee and others.
Follow us on Twitter (@caneshooter) and on Facebook (caneshooter.com) for more frequent posts and updates! Don’t forget our archive on the web, www.caneshooter.com, with nearly 65,000 images of Hurricanes Athletics!
Over the next 12 days I’ll talk about the 16 photos used in the flash movie on the home page of Caneshooter.com.
The first photo you see when visiting the site is of Sebastian the Ibis running through the smoke at the Orange Bowl Stadium in 2002. Most photographers stand somewhere around midfield and shoot the players and coaches running towards them with a long telephoto lens. For a change of pace I stood in front of the cheerleaders and used a wide angle lens from ground level. You only have a couple of seconds from this location to get a shot before the “smoke” overtakes you.
Tomorrow, Caneshooter.com will have it’s own Black Friday sale. ‘Canes fans can take 25% off their entire order all day Friday, November 27th from 12:00am to 11:59pm EST. A classic Hurricanes photo would make the perfect gift for the Miami fan that has everything! Enter promo code “blackfriday” at checkout.
