Ten Photos of the 2013 Itoman Mayor's Cup Sabani Race + Video

It all starts with the wave of the red flag.

There is also a lot of noise made by a gong and a conch shell.

Pretty much immune to noise (hearing impaired) I ignore all the sounds and just shoot.

The goal, for me, is to get good photos, of as many sabani boats as I can.

As a cameraman, covering an event, you have to be impartial.

Shoot all the boats, coming and going.

It doesn't matter if there's a favorite boat on the water.

At an event like the Mayor's Cup, getting photos of every boat is what counts.

Why do I make sure I get a photo of every boat ?

Well, just think about it for a minute.

Remember your high school yearbook.  Look at it if you can still find it.

How would you feel if everybody else was in there and, they just left you out ?
