Shekinna Stricklen tightropes the line to maintain possession of a steal against the San Antonio Silver Stars on June 22, 2012. Shekinna’s hustle as a rookie was so much fun to photograph this year, and this image is a perfect example of her hard work paying off.

Alysha Clark is fouled by the Phoenix Mercury on a drive to the hoop on Aug. 16, 2012. This year I experimented with a remote camera on the backboard. Most of the photos never worked out, but every once and a while I’d get lucky and come up with a great shot like this.

In a game against the Los Angeles Sparks on Aug. 18, 2012, Head Coach Brian Agler instructs the Storm during a timeout. I made an effort this year to get the camera in close during huddles and the payoff is images that give fans a peek at a different part of the game.

Camille Little was called for a charge after driving into Briann January of the Indiana Fever on Aug. 23, 2012. I didn’t notice the look on #50 Jessica Davenport until Kevin Pelton tweeted the photo. Pretty funny!

Shekinna Stricklen scores her first official WNBA basket in a game against the Los Angeles Sparks on May 18, 2012. Player milestones are incredibly stressful photos to try and capture. Not only do you have to remember they’re coming up, but you have to hope you are well-positioned when it happens. I got lucky with Shekinna’s first official WNBA basket!
