I'll be shooting the Kraft Fight Hunger bowl next weekend at AT&T Park. This was formerly known as the Emerald Bowl but the sponsorship has changed from Emerald Nuts to Kraft foods. I've shot the Emerald bowl a couple times before but I missed it last year in order to go freeze my butt of in Montana for the holidays. :-)
The game is the afternoon of Sunday January 9th, and will feature Boston College and the Nevada, perhaps best know as the team that beat Boise State at the end of the regular season. Normally there's a PAC-10 team in this bowl but there weren't enough bowl eligible teams in the PAC-10 this year.
The venue is AT&T Park again, the home of the World Series Champion SF Giants. (The photo work area is the Giants' dugout, which is kind of cool.) It's sort of a weird venue for football, but it works. In fact, this will be Cal's home field for the next season as Memorial Stadium is closed for remodeling for the next year. Getting there is really easy and there's plenty else to do around there, since it's downtown San Francisco.
I'll be stepping up the gear this year, bringing two full-frame cameras and both longer (500mm) and wider (15mm fisheye) glass than before. I'm looking forward to a great game and making some great images this year. Let me know if you're going to be attending.
