We recently shot the Portland Thorns players who will be playing in the 2015 Women’s World Cup in Canada. We had a lot of fun on this shoot, photographing each girl with the flag from her home country. Can’t wait to see them play in June!

Clip: April Winged M Magazine

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!

My 1st grade son loves sports. He’s quite the little athlete. Right now he is playing soccer and basketball. I’m helping coach his basketball team and when it was time for team photos, I decided I’d shoot them instead of having the league photographer do it so we could have something cool. Here is what I shot. They look like such little bad asses. Love it. You do not want to mess with them!

Here is my little man. Love this kid! So much fun watching him play.
