Marauders Volleyball – Bonding & Emotion

I recently had the opportunity to cover a number of Holiday Tournament games for the McMaster Women’s Volleyball team. The sport of volleyball is one of the most difficult to photograph but offers great emotional displays. My goal was to capture moments of emotion and interaction between teammates.

Here are some of my favourites:
