Hockey In Asia – New Photographer

Hockey In Asia has teamed up with Colin R. Dabbs Photography to get some of our own action shots from Asia League games.

Based in South Korea, the St. Louis, MO. native has years of photography experience under his belt as a photojournalist covering everything from nature shots to magazine shoots. In 2014 his photo essay, Haunts of the Ward,  was nominated by Groove magazine for photo essay of the year.

Now he is taking on the sport of Ice Hockey.

Welcome to the team Colin
