Project Pink

Ashlyn Harris looks on helplessly as a rebound drops in front of the goal

I got an email from my friends at Puma about photographing a Project Pink event with the Boston Breakers of the WPS. This was my second time working with Puma as I had earlier been embedded with them for the Volvo Ocean Race stopover in Boston. I was anxious to work with the good folks at Puma again and with a quick email exchange, fellow photographer Jeff Tamagini and I were packing our gear and headed for Harvard Stadium.

The Boston Breakers play in the Women's Professional Soccer League, which consists of 8 teams from across the US. The Breakers franchise is in their second year of the WPS, after having been affiliated with WUSA previously before it ceased operations.

In cooperation with Puma, the breakers hosted a Project Pink game to raise money for breast cancer awareness and research. The hometown Breakers sported Pink Puma jerseys for the game which were auctioned off as part of the fund raising activities; overall the event raised over $7,000 for the cause.

New updates coming soon

Due to a number of personal factors I just haven't had the opportunity to update the blog on a regular enough basis. With work and school, some personal matters, bad weather, and worse luck, I haven't been able to get out and go shooting in the last few months. In addition, I haven't even had a chance to shoot any sporting events having missed opportunities to shoot both the BU/BC game at Fenway due to being out of town, and the Boston Blazers game last weekend due to a prior commitment.

The good news is things have settled down, and the I'm working on a best of 2009 post as well as a tribute to my mother who recently passed away with some of the pictures of her last trip to New England. Winter sports are also in full motion and there will be basketball, track, and ice hockey photos forthcoming so hang in there.
