Racquetball portraits for the Winged M. Photo by Craig Mitchelldyer www.craigmitchelldyer.com (Craig Mitchelldyer)

A couple of weeks ago the Winged M asked us to come back to the Multnomah Athletic club and shoot some portraits of some racquetball players for the April issue, which came out today. It was a really fun shoot and for what might be the first time in the history of shooting for magazines, they used the exact 4 images i wanted them to in the exact way I wanted as well! Needless to say, I love how it all came together. Here are some clips of the cover and inside pages.

For the main opener image, I wanted lots of white space for txt and headlines and a racquetball court is the perfect place for that! To light this image I used the walls of the court to bounce 3 lights off to give it a natural look. Then I laid on the ground and had them fire balls just over my head. These guys are really good at this so I was pretty confident they wouldn’t kill me. I did hear the buzzing of a ball breeze past my face a time or two though!

For these individual photos, I wanted something a little different than the cover shot, so I used grid spots to light them up against the wall. I love working with the guys over at the MAC!

Clip: Winged M Magazine

March 12th, 2015

A few weeks ago, we shot the Board of Trustees at the pool of the Multnomah Athletic Club for the March cover of their magazine, The Winged M. What’s better than a magazine cover? A double truck magazine cover! The left is the cover and then it folds out to reveal the entire photo. Second year we’ve done this shot this way for them and I like it.
