What I enjoy the most about being hired to shoot a job for a magazine is when the editor trusts me enough to give me creative freedom. As it was on this photo shoot for the Orlando Family Magazine, Nate, the editor’s hiring instructions were: I trust you, do your thing.
So I did. 11 portraits of up and coming high school athletes. All are top in their field. All are dedicated to their demanding training routine. All are passionate about their sport.
And that’s what I wanted to show in the portrait. This was not about “a kid holding a ball” – I wanted to show what their sport meant to them, and where their personality met their passion.
It was interesting to see how shy these successful young adults were. Getting them out of their shell, creating trust, and seeing them allowing their personality to shine – all in an hour – mission accomplished! Here are some of my personal favorites from this photo session:
