FLASHBACK: 9 Years Ago

This was actually 9 years ago yesterday, but I got so busy with the day job I didn’t have time to create this post. But I think it’s so good, I decided not to wait for a 10 years ago post in 364 days. Obviously it was made during March Insanity (you know what it’s really called, but the NCAA won’t let anyone say it unless you’re giving them money) and the University of Louisville was doing well.

Test Shots Can Be Keepers, Too

Most professional photographers will shoot a test or two to make sure the camera and the strobes are speaking to each other the way we want them to. And even though you tell your portrait subject to relax and the test won’t count, sometimes you get magic anyway.

SKETCHBOOK: Chatting With Dad

SKETCHBOOK: Social Media Likes

SKETCHBOOK: The Three Amigos

That’s London, Patrick and Brayden. They’re the football players we call The Three Amigos. They don’t. I don’t think they ever have because I’m not sure they have ever paid attention to how obvious their friendship is. On the football field, it was obvious.

SKETCHBOOK: The Squad Goals Photo

They’re 17 and 18 years old, so what’s a prom photo shoot without one of those “Squad Goals” photos. Or some people call them “prison poses.” That’s not applicable here because, and this is a dad bragging, London’s friends have a higher purpose in mind for their adulthood.
