These and the rest of the shots I took are filed in my image browser in the same area on my redundant hard drives as the rest of the high school sports pictures.

I say that because I get asked all the time if I shoot Special Olympics differently than "other" sports.

The answer is YES, I do. I actually try a little harder on Special Olympics to get shots that make the athletes look their best.

What cameras do you use

You do a fantastic job, too, Jamie. Do you think you may ever get the opportunity to photograph the "real" Special Olympics. That is not meant as any belittling of the efforts of any other events. I'd love to see the Special Olympics incorporated into the "normal" Olympic games. I feel that there is far more sportsmanship and guts shown by the special olympians than the able bodied ones.

I actually watched the "Choir of Hard Knocks" sing at Sydney Opera House this evening and it was far more special than many other more "professional" entertainment than I've seen.

These were taken with a Canon 40D with a Sigma 135-400mm Lens.
