Photography Internship: Youth Hockey

Saturday September 28, I began a photography Internship with the P-Bruins. For those of you who do not know what I am talking about. This is the minor league team for the Boston Bruins, in the American Hockey League (AHL). This was the teams FanFest and pre – season game, played against the Worcester Sharks, affiliate of the San Jose Sharks.

I was tasked with taking photos of the Youth Hockey activities during the day including: 3 Youth Hockey game before the Providence game, the 5 minute pre-  skate, intermission skates, and post Youth Hockey game.  Each segment was broken down as follow:

————————————————————————————–

Three youth hockey before the P-Bruins games

  • full action photos taken from the benches of both teams
  • Individual
  • team photos (taken on the ice)

5 minute warm up group

  • Individual
  • team photos

Mini games during each of the intermissions

  • team photos

Youth Hockey Game following P-Bruins Game

  • full action photos taken from the benches of both teams
  • Individual
  • team photos (taken on the ice)

————————————————————————————–

In addition, to all of the Youth photos that I was assigned to take, I also got the opportunity to take photos of some meet and greets with two former Boston Bruin Players, and the Youth Hockey players groups before the P-Bruins game started.

The most enjoyable part besides getting to walk on the ice, that is a story in it’s self , was taking some awesome photos of the Providence Bruins game, including a few fights, and being in an area of the arena other than the stands where fan normally can not go.
