  • Family Circle Cup Photo in Charleston Magazine

  •   Most of you know I'm one of the Official Photographers of the Family Circle Cup.  Last year I had the honor of meeting a fabulous sports writer by the name of Bobby Chintapalli!  She was terrific to work with and a pleasure to be around.  She just emailed me a link to this article she wrote for Ch[...]
  • Featured on the Sony Ericsson WTA Tour Website

  • Game, Set, Rock!

  • “Game, Set, Rock!” was a HUGE success this year at the Family Circle Cup.  The match between John McEnroe and Jim Courier couldn’t have been any better.  With John showing his deft touch and Jim showcasing that raw power, both champions obviously still “have it”!  The match was tightly contested,[...]
  • McEnroe Clinic at the Family Circle Cup

  • On Semi-final Saturday at the Family Circle Cup, I got to be the exclusive photographer covering John McEnroe’s VIP clinic sponsored by Dunlop.  As a tennis enthusiast, it was pretty exciting being able to just “hang out” with the legend!  More at www.chrisandcami.com, www.familycirclecup.com, an[...]
  • Caroline Wozniacki Twists Ankle in Family Circle Cup

  • As soon as I got back to the Media Tent after shooting Caroline Wozniacki’s match against Vera Zvonareva in the Quarters at the Family Circle Cup, I was bombarded with “DID YOU GET IT?!?”  Here are the three key frames out of about 10 in the sequence.  I truly feel horrible for Caroline.  She’s s[...]
  • Fun Friday at the Family Circle Cup

  • WOW!  I wasn’t sure we could top Thursday’s action.  But Friday really was AMAZING!  In spite of a vip sponsor assignment downtown and a few off-court shoots, I got to see a lot of great tennis today.  By the excitement of the fans, I think they’d probably agree!  Here are a few picks from the to[...]
