Sports Photographer Kevin Gilligan, photographs the Los Angeles Galaxy at the Stub Hub Center. As a soccer player for many years, I really enjoy photographing the LA Galaxy. Here Gio Dos Santos takes a corner kick. You can learn more about the LA Galaxy here: http://www.lagalaxy.com/news
Ok, I admit it. I am a really big fan of Robbie Keane of the Los Angeles Galaxy. He's a great player, he's Irish, and he's a gentleman. What more could you want? He's also tough, coming back from multiple injuries and still playing well.
There are many things I love about this shot. First, it's great action. I was a goalie so I love the drama of a penalty kick. I love that I took this image from over 100 yards away on the opposite end line with my Canon 7D Mk II and the awesome Tamron 150-600. That lens has incredible reach and was great for long shots in soccer. The details in the crowd are terrific and fun to look at. I did not know until I got home and looked at this picture on the big screen that the Los Angeles Galaxy fans on the right were so "animated." #withmytamron 150-600. @TamronUSA
I've noticed that Robbie frequently takes time to sign autographs and interact with fans. He is generous with his time and that's probably one of the reasons he is so well liked, in addition to being an amazing goal scorer.
