Fit Nation Magazine approached me with a cover idea March 2014 issue featuring high school athletes. I initially expected athletes from the usual high school sports, football, basketball, softball, etc.
Instead I was introduced to Jordan Griffith, a fencer currently competing in matches around the country, (dig his skull and crossbones socks!). We also had Adrian Dougherty, a spitfire 15-year-old competitive weightlifter, who kept us cracking up during the shoot with her quick witted sense of humor.
We started the shoot with Jordan and had him move through a few different fencing stances and motions. Adrian showed up shortly after with a few hundred lbs of weights that looked like giant lifesaver candies.
We shot a ton of images of the both of them and together on white seamless lighting them with a large Octa and then individual shots of them with the colored seamless using a Mola Demi beauty dish. Everything went great and we had a blast shooting these two incredible athletes.
