High school senior sport photography

High school senior sport photography of a Clarkston soccer player.  I met this student and his Dad at the football and soccer stadium for some posed and action shots.  Dad tossed balls up for headers and scissor kicks and the student had a workout with all the shots we did.  We chose to shoot late in the evening, starting right at sunset and letting the sky get darker, adding some off camera flash for dramatic sport action shots.  The student used one of the scissor kick shots as a large banner for his open house.  I suspect the banner will end up in his California college dorm room.

This student also want to study marine biology, so we came up with the idea to put him a business suit and have him walk in a local lake.  We also had him ride a jet ski in a shirt and tie a make a series of big splashes and waves.  We later did some simple outdoor portraits in a friend’s backyard at their Waterford lake house.

After we did the yearbook shot, we had him put his varsity jacket on and did some simple studio portraits.
