  • Capturing moments as a sports photographer

    As I began my day reading about Ryan Mallett’s release from the Houston Texans, I flashed back to a moment from a game in 2010. As sports photographers, we have a split second to capture images that tell a story. There are so many factors that affect this, and many times moments are missed or…

  • 2014 Sports – Arkansas Photographer

      I always refer to the shooting sports as the icing on the cake. Over the years, sports has become a smaller part of my photography, but I really have fun and it’s always a challenge. This year I really had to work on my timing, mostly because I switched from shooting Nikon (for 15 years)…

  • 2014 portraits – Arkansas photographer

    As I gathered images together to create this post, I realize just how incredible 2014 was for Beth Hall Photography. Not only did I meet and exceed personal goals for my photography, I met and photographed some really amazing people along the way. Just to name a few: former Arkansas Razorback basketball coach Nolan Richardson,…

  • Northern Illinois University vs. Arkansas – Football – Sports Photographer

    The Arkansas Razorbacks took on, and defeated, Northern Illinois University in September at home in Fayetteville, Ark. Here is a link to more sports photography from the game.

  • Nolan Richardson – 40 Minutes of Hell – Arkansas Basketball

      I recently photographed former Arkansas Razorback coach Nolan Richardson. It was such an honor to meet him, and I must say that I was a little star struck. When I look back at the last 20 years in Fayetteville, Nolan has always been a presence. I began attending the U of A in 1995 when…

  • 2013 Sports Photography Recap

      At the end of each year, I like to go through all of my images from that year and evaluate my work. My hope is that I can look at the year and see where I’ve grown, and where I need to improve. This year I started by going through my collection of sports…

  • Sports Illustrated BCS Bowl Guide 2012 – Sports Photographer

    It seems like I photograph so many things that I can’t talk about for months, so I’ve decided to jump on the Throwback Thursday trend. Hopefully this will be a fun way to display my work from the past, whether it’s recent or from many years ago. Check back because I plan to dig through…

  • Arkansas Razorbacks vs. Louisiana – Lafayette – Football – Sports Photography

    I recently photographed the season opener for the Arkansas Razorbacks football against. Louisiana-Lafayette. I’ve been covering the Hogs for over a decade now, and it seems like the time I start to get into the groove of their system, they change coaches. I almost dreaded going to shoot the game that morning in anticipation of…

  • Arkansas Razorback Football Stadium – Exterior photo

    I’ve been holding onto this image for a little while now, and I’m finally digging it out and putting it to good use. I’m donating an 8″x 15″ metal print of this photo of Razorback Stadium to a Facebook auction. Beginning Sept. 1st, my sister is having an auction to help raise money to offset…

  • Jeff Long – Arkansas Razorbacks – Sports Photographer

    “Integrity goes a Long way.” If you’re an Arkansas fan, you’ve heard or read this phase numerous times since the Petrino incident in April. Well, I recently photographed Jeff Long for Ay Magazine and was really hoping to take images of Jeff away from the Razorbacks. He has been photographed for numerous publications since April,…

  • Spurs vs. Thunder – NBA Playoffs – Sports Photography

    At the beginning of June, I got a last minute call to cover the San Antonio Spurs and Oklahoma City Thunder in game 4 of the playoffs. I’m not stretching when I say last minute… I had just finished a run at the lake when my editor called and said that the scheduled second shooter…

  • Arkansas Razorback Coach Bobby Petrino – Motorcycle Accident

      Last week I photographed the press conference following Petrino’s motorcycle accident… two days later s%*t hit the fan. That’s about as far as I’m going to go with comments on the situation, but it’s become pretty interesting here over the past week. I’m ready for a decision to be made so I can take…

  • Oklahoma State vs. Iowa State – Sports Photographer

    A couple of weeks ago, I made a short trip up North to cover the Cowboys vs. Cyclones game in Ames, Iowa. Going in, I had no idea that it would turn into such an exciting game, and end up being such an upset.  After 2 overtimes, Iowa State defeated No. 2 Oklahoma State, and…

  • Track and Field – Sports Photogrpher

    Arkansas hosted several indoor track meets this season including the Tyson Invitational, Razorback Invitational, and the SEC Indoor Championships. I covered the events for several schools, which is always fun because it gives me a chance to photograph a variety of athletes, and work with schools outside of Arkansas. I’ve recently come to the conclusion…

  • Arkansas Basketball – Sports photography

    Basketball season has just started and Pelphrey is in full swing already. He has to be one of the most entertaining people to photograph, always with a great expression! The last two photos are from an assignment I picked up from the Memphis Commercial Appeal. I was asked to cover the Victory basketball team as…

  • Sports Photography Details

    While covering the Razorbacks for the University, the thing I’ve struggled with the most is not shooting action. Everything is important, not just the action on the field. I’ve really had to push myself this year to come up with more of the “detail” photos from the events we cover. I’ve had to really retrain…

  • Arkansas Football – Sports Photographer

    The photo of Mallett was a text request from my dad during the game. Most people want actions shots, but not my dad…. he wanted him in his “stocking cap.” Jake Bequette (91) has become one of my favorite players to watch during games. His level of intensity is unbelievable throughout the entire game… you…

  • Arkansas, Alabama and Texas A&M Football – Sports Photographer

    Arkansas vs. Alabama   Arkansas vs. Texas A&M I must say that being on the sidelines and wandering through Cowboy’s Stadium was pretty fun!

  • Arkansas Athletics – Sports Photographer

    In the past couple of months I have been busy shooting photos for the 19 different sports at the University of Arkansas. While there have been numerous, not so glamorous “mug” shots, I thought I would upload some of the more entertaining shots from my outings. It has been fun to work with the athletes…

  • Arkansas Tech University Football – Sports Photographer

    “I just looked at the photos from Saturday and before I got busy doing something else I wanted to write and say thank you for a great job…..these photos are just what we needed and they will help us with a wide assortment of upcoming projects.

  • LPGA – Sports Photographer

    The P & G NW Arkansas Championship came to town Sept. 10-12. I feel like I walked around a little lost the first couple of days, but by Sunday I was able to focus in, and work on making pretty pictures. I was entertained by the sidewalk art this year and thought I’d share my favorite…

    Photography of track athletes at the Razorback Invitational. So i thought i would throw in this last photo of London Crawford just to show off his tattoos. To think that I’ve covered him during football season, and I had no clue he had this much ink! Here’s a shot of a few guys from C.R.…

  • Recent Photo shoots – Commercial and Sports photographer

    Dec. 3, 2009 Sarah Palin stopped by Fayetteville to sign autographs at Sam’s Club on a REALLY COLD day in Fayetteville. This was my hail-mary with my 80-200 to get a shot of the crowd. I cracked up at this woman who had a baby blanket wrapped around her head as she waited to meet…

  • Basketball update – Sports photography

    Wow, has it really been a month since I last updated my blog? I’ve covered several basketball games over the last month and I thought I would just post a few frames from each game. Here you go! Dec. 22, 2009 — Arkansas 66 – Missouri State 62 Rotnei Clarke celebrates after shooting a three-point…

  • Arkansas vs. South Alabama – Sports Photographer

    The game wasn’t too exciting, but the 1/2 time show was AWESOME! Too bad the stands were so empty and more people didn’t get to see the dogs! I just like this photo… the look, the tie. Other than the dogs, this was the best part of the night. SaveSave

  • Arkansas vs. Kansas-Volleyball – Sports Photographer

  • LPGA- Nikon D3 – Arkansas Sports Photographer

    So I broke down and bought a D3, and I’m so happy about it! I’ve been saving my pennies for the last few months trying to make the decision between a d300 and a d3. I’m so glad a d300 to shoot the Arkansas game b/c it helped me make up my mind. Woo hoo…

  • Arkansas vs. Missouri State – Sports Photographer

    Fun first game of the season in Little Rock at War Memorial Stadium. I borrowed a Nikon d300 and WOW, I was amazed by the color and ambient light in the photos. While I like my d2x, it’s time for an upgrade. I can’t get over the fact that photos from a night game at…

  • NCAA Outdoor Track and Field Championships – Sports Photographer

    I’m finally putting up some photos from the NCAA Outdoor Track and Field Championships that were held June 10th-13th. It was the first time I’ve covered the outdoor event, and though it was fun, it was a bit overwhelming at times. It’s kind of interesting to shoot for the AP b/c I really don’t have…

  • Hogs vs Ole Miss, Baseball – Sports Photographer

    Am I really this far behind on my blog? Hogs vs. Ole Miss—May 16—this was a very long game. The final score was 16 to 3, Ole Miss. This was pretty much my first, and only, baseball game to shoot… and I still suck at shooting baseball! SaveSave

  • AA Softball Championships – Sports Photographer

    Foreman vs. Junction City I covered the AA softball championships for the El Dorado News last weekend and unfortunately the team I covered lost.

Shortly after it appeared in the paper, an email circulated with a photoshopped hand giving the downed hooke-em-horns sign. I was walking through the mall a few weeks ago and found someone selling my photo… which is actually copy written…

  • Wooooooooooo, Pig Sooie! – 1994 National Champions

    The game on Sunday was a fun one for me b/c I grew up watching the ’94 team and hearing all about them from my brother. I started college at the U of A in ’95 and remember how much fun we had at the games and how loud the fans were. When Nolan was…

    Let me start off by giving a BIG THANK YOU to Marc for loaning me his coat… I don’t think I would’ve made it through the evening without it. You would think by now I would know how to dress for a sporting event, but when I left the house this morning, I thought I…
