London Bound

July 23, 2012

I spent most of last week in our Nation’s Capital working with the team at Nike and the US Men’s and Women’s National Basketball Teams. While most of the world was worrying about the kiss-cam and why Barack didnt kiss Michelle, we were hard at work creating a team photo before the men and women of USAB left for London. I worked with an awesome crew from both NY and DC and got super lucky with the weather. About 30 minutes before the women’s team arrived for their pictures, it started to sprinkle. Plastic bags came out to cover the strobes and then the rain subsided. We shot for about an hour and just as we finished up, the skies opened. Thanks to the weather gods for cooperating. And yes – that was the real sky at the photo shoot!

The Summit

March 1, 2012

Last week Nike held their Olympic Summit to announce new technologies for London 2012. I am not a gadget girl and Im not too product obsessed but Wow! Nike could make you both. Cant wait to get my hands on the new sneakers, a FUEL band and start taking advantage of the Nike+ innovations. Once I got over the excitement of all of the cool products that Nike would be releasing, it was time to photograph the athletes and launch. I had never worked with Manny Pacquiao, Victor Cruz or Allyson Felix but I would have about 2 minutes to create a portrait of the three of them. Thankfully all of the athletes were excited to be meeting one another and looking forward to having their photograph taken together.
