The life of a photographer for SD Mag! We sent photographer Sam Hodgson to spend the evening at Viejas Arena with the San Diego Sockers, our city’s most under appreciated (and winningest) professional sports team. The photoshoot itself was a challenge with the arena’s low light. Sam pushed his cameras to its limits and got us  great images that we showed off in a photo essay in our April issue. It worked out perfectly that the star of our article, Kraig Chiles, was also the star of the game. See his photos of him scoring the  game-winning goal in overtime. Sam even got a real nice celebration image in there from that moment. Take a look at the extra photos we couldn’t fit in the magazine!
