In 2004 I was approached by a local high school coach who asked if I would take action photos of his team. I had just purchased my first DSLR and was not even sure how to use it. I decided to try it (with no guarantees) and HawkSports (later to become MatSuSports) was born. Since that time I have gone through 6 cameras, a couple of lenses, and many hours of time doing what I have come to love. I have just over 1.5 million photos on MatSuSports.net, which are viewed around 7 million times per year.
I would like to give as many the opportunity to donate as possible, regardless of how much. While I don't want to discourage any from donating higher amounts, I don’t want to be beholding to any one school or sport.
Please share this to as many as possible. I would hate to have anyone not get the opportunity to help.
There is a sense of urgency on this request. Until I can replace my professional lens, I will be forced to use a kit lens that will not work for indoor events, and would be limited for outdoor events.
