My good friend Mad Max the road warrior was in town…or I should say in the region to shoot a variety of sporting events over the holidays. As is our custom anytime he is in the area, we get together to shoot a pep rally or two and catch up on old times. You may remember, we’ve photographed the Wisconsin Pep Rallies in Southern California for the past two NCAA basketball tournaments. And since the Badgers were in San Diego to play (and beat!) the USC Trojans in the 2015 Holiday Bowl, we decided to meet up at Wisconsin’s Pep Rally on December 29th.
The Badgers brought their entire spirit squad, but from my vantage point at the venue, I was only able to shoot the first line because the dance team was performing on a small platform that the girls had to stand in four or five lines deep. They didn’t swap out the lines, so basically I only got shots of a few girls…but here’s what I got.
I enjoy covering these pep rallies…they remind me of the time that I was in college going to these events. And I get a chance to touch base with a friend and catch up on current events…it’s all good. As long as there are these pep rallies in Southern California and I’ve got some free time…count me in!
