I had the opportunity to shoot the Seattle Sounders vs Los Angeles Galaxy MLS knockout match for Prost Amerika, and after shooting college level soccer for the previous month, standing on the sidelines of Century Link Field made it feel like I had stumbled across an entirely different sport. I spent the first half of the game shooting Galaxy players attempting to blast in big kicks past Stefan Frei (succeeding twice). The second half of the game, I got to internally cheer for the Sounders offense as they wore down Galaxy players to claim their victory. Here are a handful of my favorite images.
