Hello all!

As you can tell from the images I feature on my website, I photograph a lot of portraits. I also shoot a variety of sporting events. These are two of my greatest passions!

Recently, I was hired for a job which allowed me to combine those two passions. I was brought on to capture images of Olympian Donald Scott. Scott, a graduate of Eastern Michigan University, competed for Team USA this past summer in Tokyo, Japan. His specialty is the Triple Jump, and he finished 7th in the world!

Donald is currently training at the Health and Fitness Center at Washtenaw Community College, and I shot portraits of him going through some of his training routine. Dawn Lyons, at the Fitness Center, was gracious enough to allow me to bring some of my lighting in, which helped me create more of a dramatic and dynamic look to the portraits.

It was a pleasure to work with Donald, and I loved being able to combine these two genres. Here are some of my favorites from that day.
