Trey Hill Photographs

game time

Posted in celebrity, commercial, photography, sports, story by Trey on February 26, 2009

several weeks ago, i mentioned a job the Dallas Stars hired me for & now that the finished product* is online & hitting mailboxes, i figured it was time to revisit the experience.

fan shop paraphernalia | the great Razor Reaugh goes over his game notes as the players arrive.

over two different evenings, i was given an amazing level of access to the team & the building – which is something i can’t take any credit for. Colin & John, the two people who should be atop your “people i wish i knew at the Dallas Stars” list, did a tremendous job of making everything i asked for a reality. i was apparently the first photographer allowed up into the rafters (during play) in 5 years – for any sport. they got me into the locker room as the guys got ready. i practically stood on the bench for most of one period.

all of this allowed me to see and show the game in a really unique way and i walked away having learned a few things about a sport i love a ton.

follow the jump for more images.

    Trey, you have a way with this kind of thing that is sorely missing in sports photography these days. Very reminiscent of the golden days of Sports Illustrated in the 60’s and 70’s…

    Brilliant stuff!

    Thanks man. Those are some overly kind words… but I’ll take ’em. I think some of that yesteryear feel comes from the 1.4 – it’s that dreamy in a good way kind of effect… but who shoots sports with a 1cm. dof?

    Apparently I’m the only one crazy enough to try.

    stunning stuff, trey. the evolution of the 3 that has been going on for the last several years is impressive to watch. i can only imagine where your skill, drive and personality will take you in the years to come. good work, friend.
