CBVA-AVP Qualification Tournament July 24-25 in Zuma Beach

The Greek American beach volleyball players, Christina Hinds (facebook link) and JoAnna Papageorgiou (facebook link), competed in the CBVA-AVP qualification tournament July 24-25 in Zuma Beach.  The two are preparing to play on the international beach volleyball circuit where Olympic qualification takes place.  The beautiful US beaches with the solid American competition and fabulous friend and family support are the ideal location for them to prepare for their Olympic goals of qualifying for the 2012 Olympics in Beach Volleyball, representing Greece.

Christina and I have been friends for over 10 years now and this weekend I meet JoAnna.  Both these girls together make such a powerful team.  They are trying to raise money so they can practice, travel and make it to the 2012 Olympics. 

I never shot beach volleyball before, wow very changeling.  I don't really know to much about the sport myself but that these girls are super fast.  Trying to following them with my camera to capture the right movements was some work for sure.  As a photographer is so great to push yourself and shoot something outside  your confront level.  Hope you guys like these shots.

This is JoAnna
Ok really hows that so sick
Another Greek coming down to help the girls last minute couching.  Thanks for your support
