Behind the Camera: Keeping it Interesting by Burt Granofsky

A short piece sharing what it's like to shoot ultimate professionally - both the joys and the challenges. A player from Bytown Flatball Club pulls the disc at Mixed Easterns 2013. I wasted many frames before getting this shot, which was one of my favorites from the entire weekend. I love playing ultimate. I love shooting ultimate, too, which is why I am willing to spend weekends kneeling down in the hea...

I first came to love ultimate one Saturday evening in 1995, sitting in a cafeteria in Amherst, MA. My high school team had just competed in its first big tournament, and now we were sharing a meal ...

A piece from the New York Time's "Games People Play" series. :) Ultimate Frisbee was founded in the heyday of hippiedom; leave it to a bunch of weirdos to invent the perfect game.

Shared from Without Limits:

"We are beginning to assess the feasibility of a Without Limits ultimate camp for college women's players for Summer 2014.
