Clip: IMPACT Magazine

July 15th, 2015

A couple of months ago we were contacted by IMPACT Magazine, a Canadian sports publication, to shoot a feature on Aston Eaton and Brianne Theissen-Eaton for the summer issue. Track and Field royalty here in Oregon, I was happy to get the assignment. Ashton won the gold medal in the decathlon at the 2012 London Olympics, setting a new world record. Brianne is an amazing heptathlete as well, a 2 time world silver medalist and 2012 olympian. The focus of the story was Brianne competing in the Toronto PanAm games in her home country of Canada.

As you can imagine, their training and travel schedule is all over the place so nailing down a time for the shoot was a tough one, but once we nailed it down we needed a location. They train in Eugene and that is where the shoot would take place. Originally I was going to setup an outdoor studio at the track where they were training, but the wether had other ideas and left me scrambling for a location at the last minute. Luckily, my friend and photo editor Rob Romig at the Register Guard newspaper in Eugene came to the rescue and let me use their photo studio.

Here is how it looked in print. They ran Brianne on the cover and a shot of her training on the contents page. And a large photo of them both on the story opener. They also ran a mug and short bio of me in the contributors section which was cool.

I also shot some stuff of Ashton by himself that did not get published but I still like it. It was fun to get to shoot them. I have been covering Ashton since he was in high school. I remember one year he single handily won the state title for his team with all the events he did. Now, he is the greatest athlete in the entire world.
