GMG photographers serve up passion and inspiration daily, so no surprise Joey recognizes local sports and talent on his blog.
Decisive shots by sports photographers freeze and interpret the best of sports moments: elements of beauty, determination, athleticism, emotion. GMG contributor, David Cox, is one hard-working pro photographer, known for just that. FOBs and residents know his shots of local school sports, crowds, events, nature and people.
Both are great photos and deserve high resolution inspection. See the stands in David’s– all the ohs and awes. The second photo is by Damian Strohmeyer on assignment from Sports Illustrated, published in the October 14, 2013 issue, pp 30-31 double page spread. We could do this comparison for the Koji Uehara leap-lift seen round the world, seconds after the Red Sox advanced to the 2013 World Series Game (various angles made it on many “pictures of the year” lists for 2013.) Sports Illustrated, national print media, game on! When Cox has a chance to be in the right seat at the right time, he doesn’t miss.

Somehow David Cox can shoot a clean background and direct our focus to the main event. Not easy to do. We look exactly where it’s needed, and have the bonus luxury to take our time for any all-over mosaic or atmosphere.
David Cox, Gloucester’s BBB sports + more photographer. When he’s not crouching and climbing around for careful framing and action shots, he’s a fixture downtown as the proprietor of Main Street Arts and Antiques. You can visit there to see his art while browsing an eclectic mix of consignments. If you know David, his pictures and his store suit him.
