Roller derby. Now that is one hell of a fun sport to photograph.
Recently, I put together a story on Kim "Barbarian Librarian" Smith and her skating with one of the Santa Cruz Derby Girls teams, the Harbor Hellcats.
It was a super great time shooting all these women who just love the sport and love to knock each other down, but at the same time are supportive and encouraging to each other with a great team spirit. The girls love it, the fans love it and everyone is decked out in bright colors and crazy costumes.
