The Multnomah Athletic Club brought us back for another photo shoot to be featured in their publication, The Winged M. The cover photo was shot to advertise the club’s annual artisanal picnic event, and they even provided a stylist and sweet little Teardrop camping trailer from Teardrops NW. The inside spreads showcased a few accomplished names in the sports world of Squash.
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.
What a crazy couple of days. I was brought up to Vancouver to shoot photos at the US Soccer Fan HQ parties on Saturday and Sunday for US Soccer and ISI Photos. We put them out over various social media channels and had them going to a live gallery for people to download on site within a few seconds of shooting them. Here are a few of my favorites! You can see more in the new USA World Cup Fans gallery on our website.
After the match, we shot photos of the new world champs with the FIFA World Cup Trophy. Here, Morgan Brian, Meghan Klingenberg, and Julie Johnston have some fun with trophy at the team party after the win.
A new app called Head Trainer hired us to shoot pictures of athletes in three cities across the west. First, we shot Alex Morgan in Portland, followed by Richard Sherman in Seattle, and then Rickie Fowler in Phoenix. Here are a few screen shots captured on the app’s web site, and a few other shots that will be used for various purposes.
Here are a few of our photos in clips from Athlon Sports Magazine. On top we have Alex Morgan featured the World Cup issue.
Below, Connor Cook of Michigan State is on the cover of the Big Ten issue, and Royce Freeman is featured on the cover of the Pac 12 issue. And, both of these photos were actually shot during the same game!
