I recently had the opportunity to photograph projected 2018 1st round NBA draft pick, Anfernee Simons for SLAM Magazine. I met up with with Anfernee down in Bradenton, FL at the IMG Academy. Anfernee recently declared he is foregoing his NCAA eligibility to go straight into the pros. Simons was a humble and easy to work with. In about 90 minutes, we were able to shoot quite a few different scenes. Check out some of the images!
I was recently given an editorial assignment from Outdoor Life Magazine photo editor, Justin Appenzeller, to photograph Paul Baker of 5 Star Bait. Paul runs a bait business from his boat in the pass connecting Pensacola Bay to the Gulf of Mexico. Because Paul was working on his boat and it was out of commission at the time we needed to shoot, my friend Stuart West took us out into the Gulf on his boat so we could capture our images. From the short time I spent with Paul, I gathered that he is hard working, honest and genuine. Here are the published images along with a few of my favorites below.
Here is my friend, Captain Stuart West. Stuart, thanks for helping make this shoot happen.
A few weeks ago I received a call from ESPN The Magazine Senior Photo Editor, Kristine LaManna about an assignment in Auburn, AL. The feature was about Ricardo Louis and Chris Davis. Ricardo was the receiver who caught the tip ball against Georgia and Chris Davis had the 109 yard run back against Alabama. Both guys were fun to photograph and were very cooperative. It was my first time at Auburn and I was very impressed with how nice the campus and facilities were. I plan on catching a game next season at Jordan–Hare Stadium. Below are a few of the images that I captured of the guys. Tearsheet from ESPN The Magazine
Big THANK YOU to Kristine LaManna at ESPN The Magazine, Kirk Sampson at Auburn, my assistants Patrick Coughlin and Ryan Williams, Katherine Quarles and Spiros Zachos for spotting my 2 Einsteins at the last minute.
