Shot my first MLS game last night – the Seattle Sounders vs the New York Red Bulls.  What an experience.  The chants, the energy and the stadium packed with fans in green and blue was a completely new experience to me.  Shooting a pro game for the first time is thrilling but it is also stressful.  Finding the right entrance, walking into a press room full of strangers, following the protocol and figuring out the mores of the other journalists is enough to throw you completely off.  Luckily,  I  had the privilege of being taken under the wing of great photographer and all around decent human being Anthony Bolante.
All I can say is that the night went so wrong that whatever I shot last night would not have been possible without him.
