Ron Sellers
Photographer
I live in Alameda and work throughout the San Francisco Bay Area. My passion is photographing sports and action of any type. My favorite sports to cover are football, rugby and basketball. I've covered the 2013 America's Cup here in San Francisco, and I spend several days each year hanging out of an airplane shooting other planes performing amazing aerobatics.
I have been photographing professional sports since 2004. I have spent the last several years focusing on college athletics, as there are more local colleges and a greater variety of sports and challenges to hone my skills with. I come from graphic design, so I approach photography with a designer's eye, creating bold and striking work. RsellersPhotography.com.

Photographer
Austin W. Brewin is a Berkeley artist who grew up in the Boston area, drawing everything he saw. When he discovered the camera was a better tool than the pencil at capturing special moments, the path forward became clear. By his mid-teens he had access to gifted photographers, professional equipment (Speed Graphlex), a press pass and the hard-nosed assessments of press and year-book editors to refine the skills, toughen the hide and curb the ego.
Austin is a contributing photographer and reporter to Scrum Down, Youth Rugby News and Rugby Magazine. More recently his images have been published in the San Francisco Examiner, Rugby Today, The Goff Report and the Ultimate Sports Guide.
An image called Yosemite From Tunnel View: Tourists and Blue Umbrella, was awarded Best In Show at the 53rd Lodi Arts Festival, the largest juried multi-media art show in Northern California.
