Introducing myself..

Hello, my handle is loyalt. I am a sports photographer for local high schools and D3 colleges/universities. Most of my photography time is donated, as I want all students, no matter their economic situation to have photos of themselves as they participate in athletics. I also do periodic senior portraits, as well as candid photos at family/friends' weddings. I have been into photography since I got my Pentax K-1000 for college graduation in 1984. I have always only used Pentax equipment, getting my first digital camera, the K-20D, as a birthday gift/upgrade from my husband and children in 2009. Since then, I have used it to bless the high school where my husband (and now daughter) teach and coach. I have given my K-20D to my daughter for her college graduation, and now shoot with both a K-5 and a K-3. When my children went to play soccer in college, I started shooting the men's and women's teams in the 12-15 D3 colleges here in Minnesota. I love Pentax and always stand up for the brand when on the sidelines with other sports photographers. At the recent D3 NCAA National Track Meet, I was the only Pentax used in the sports media room. I would love for Ricoh/Pentax to make a good 400mm f2.8 lens. I look forward to meeting others in this forum. I have attached a recent photo from the National meet. My blog site is buildyourlife.space
I also have a hope to be a Pentax Ambassador to all the high school and college students/photographers I connect with to show them the great quality of Pentax/Ricoh. Thank you for reading/listening!

Nice photo and welcome to the forums! I'm sure there are many of us who would love to hear from a sports photographer on settings and methods if you have the time.

Thanks,
Mike

consider introducing folks to the Pentax forums

lots of good info here for photographers of any level in the articles as well as in the reviews found under " cameras " and " lenses "

that holds true whether they are currently into Pentax or just into photography
