  1. I just sold my FX3 and looking to buy an FX6. I can't wait to get one and go shoot some sports. The FX3 was nice but I was going to end up spending more than an FX6 by the time I finished building the rig.
  2. The one lens that never leaves my bag is the 70-200 GM II. Doesn't matter what I'm shooting that day it goes with me along with the necessary lenses for that shoot.
  3. There were two specific photos I saw growing up that made me want to be a sports photographer. I was looking at sports history book at the library. I saw the historic image of John Madden being carried on players shoulders while holding up the game ball. I immediately looked to see who took the photo, Michael Zagaris. I then found his iconic photo of Bill Walsh and Joe Montana, I was hooked. I have followed his work ever since. Because of Michael Zargaris, I found Peter Reid Miller, which led me to Patrick Murphy-Racey, who, through Sony, introduced me to Jean Fruth. @pm-r @Jeanfruth
  4. Lens maintenance day, everything off the shelves to be cleaned.
  5. Playing around with the 14mm today at the BMX track. Can get really creative with it.
  6. @Wojtsobi Amazing shots! Thanks for sharing! I enjoy chasing the light for the perfect shot as well.
  7. My name is Larry, I am a sports photographer from California. I started my Sony journey with the A6000, thanks to PM-R. I found Patrick's Youtube channel and was instantly impressed with the Sony lineup. I upgraded bodies roughly every other release, to where I am now with multiple A1's and a complete lineup of GM lenses. Sony Artisans, Patrick Murphy-Racey and Jean Fruth have influenced my photography, and helped me create my own sports photography style. The Alpha Universe has incredible tools and resources for photographers and I am very excited to be a part of it. I look forward to sharing my work with all of you and enhancing our photography skills together. Larry
  8. Welcome to the forums, and the Sony family!
  9. Decision making and anticipation of potential upcoming shots. When I started sports photography I had a bad habit of always following the action, no matter what. For example, I would take a low percentage action shot, because it was action, and end up with a back, no ball in frame, or an umpire/player moving into my frame. I learned to stop forcing the shot and take what the game is giving me in my current position. Took a while to break that habit, what a difference it made.
  10. As a sports photographer, Eye-AF at 30 fps, in compressed-raw is a game changer.
  11. Congrats on the purchase! Let us know how it works out for you.
  12. @AndrewNeary Can I ask your budget for the new camera? If money is not an issue, and you want the best of both worlds, (photo/video) then I would have to suggest the A1. If you are working with a smaller budget, then the A7IV would be my suggestion. I am firm believer that there is no such thing as overkill, only over budget spending.
  13. I was on Photoshelter for years, recently their customer service is non-existent, no features have been added since 2020. I moved over to Pixieset. Works quite well for me. Handles my fairly large sales volume with no issues, and most importantly, Pixieset does not take a commission on my sales! I am not affiliated with or partnered with Pixieset in any way other than being a customer.
