The Stick

Candlestick Park in San Francisco was home to the San Francisco 49ers for over 40 years, where this past Monday night, the last game was played there.

Personally for me, this is where I learned to shoot football. When I was 16 years old, I was lucky enough to hook up with UPI, where I started covering the Niners in their glory. Joe Montana, Jerry Rice and Ronnie Lott were my subjects back then, so it didn’t really get any better than that!

The DOP at Sports Illustrated Brad Smith came to me at the beginning of the season with an idea of capturing a behind the scenes look at the last year of the ballpark. Furthermore, shooting with an infrared camera would give it an extra look of nostalgia. I’ll definitely miss shooting at the old ballpark. We’ll see what the new stadium has to offer next year. Thanks for looking. stick0 stick1 stick2 stick3 stick4 stick5 stick6 stick7 stick8 stick9 stick10 stick11 stick12 stick13 stick14 stick15 stick16 stick17 stick18 stick19 stick20 stick21 stick22 stick23
