Last weekend, I photographed Mud Bowl — a fundraiser for Mott Children’s Hospital. That atmosphere was unlike any other sport I’ve shot before; spectators ranged from tailgaters to alumni to Greek Life, all cheering on their favorite team. Being on the sidelines was nothing short of chaotic: getting mud splashed all over as I tried to capture the action, atmosphere and fights breaking out. It reminded me that spectators and atmosphere are just as important as the athletes and telling the story of the game. That’s why Mudbowl easily claims the spot as my favorite event I’ve shot on campus.
