Best of 2014 NCAA Track and Field Championships | Day 1

June 11, 2014

Today was intense. Eric and I worked a 13-hour day that saw us shooting for nine different schools. By the end of the day we had moved more than 250+ cropped and tone photos to our clients. We have another action-packed three days ahead of us but for now, here's my best 40 photos from today's events. 

Disclaimer: While these photos do provide a decent representation of Day 1 of the NCAATF Championships, most of my work today was done in an effort to capture our clients' student athletes as they perform. In other words, this photo essay doesn't provide the whole picture (no pun intended) but it will give you a pretty good look into how today played out.
