As you probably know, the FutureAngels.com Digital Photo Gallery is filled with thousands of photos taken throughout the Angels minor leagues. These photos are available for purchase. Follow the instructions on the photo order page.
Some of you may be looking for 2007 photos. As always this time of year, it takes a lot longer to process the photos and place them on-line than it does to go shoot them. I’m working on them as time permits, but I have a lot less time than I used to since changing jobs last year.
Just to give you an idea of what’s ahead, here are the games I’ve shot this year:
- Minor League Spring Training Camp — March 18, 19 and 20. I’m almost done with March 18; you’ll find photos in the gallery of Hank Conger, Young-Il Jung and many others who played for the Cedar Rapids and Rancho Cucamonga squads that day. But I still have plenty more to do, so don’t be disappointed if you don’t see your favorite player.
- Rancho Cucamonga — April 8 and April 22. None of those are on-line yet, other than the Brad Coon photo I shot today which is to the right as a token of good will.
- Salt Lake at Las Vegas — April 13, 14 and 15. I’ve posted on-line a couple photos of Brandon Wood, Matt Brown and Terry Evans for a rush special order, but these too will take a while.
Looking ahead, I’m going to shoot Cedar Rapids on May 12-15 — two games in Clinton, then two games at Cedar Rapids.
I’d originally intended to cash in some frequent flyer mileage to go to Little Rock in late May, but the airline blacked out that weekend, so now I’m looking at some June dates.
Combine that with the podcasts and I just don’t have much time to process photos. I may drop the podcasts for a while if that’s what it takes to catch up.
In any case, your patience is appreciated. I know there are some players’ parents out there I’ve met along the line who are awaiting their sons’ photos. Sooner or later, they’ll all show up on-line.
