About the AuthorTom Valentine
tomkaren2 Colorado Springs, Colorado, United States
I am the owner and photographer for Colorado Action Sports. I specialize in photographing athletes and team sports. I like to photograph the athletes during games so I can capture them at their best.
I have been taking pictures as long as I can remember. When I was younger I would go out and spend hours driving around my hometown, Huntsville, Alabama, taking pictures of everything and anything that I thought looked cool. When I went to college I became the photographer for my fraternity, Pi Kappa Alpha, and took thousands of pictures over the years.
When I moved to Colorado my interest turned to landscape and wildlife. I am lucky enough to live in a place with plenty of wildlife and beautiful landscapes. My interest in wildlife really took off when we moved to a new house and discovered that I only had to step out in the backyard to photograph some of the best wildlife in Colorado.
Sports photography took over my life when my two kids became old enough to play sports.
