2015 Senior Style Guide Hot 100

Hot 100 WinnerEvery year the the folks at Senior Style Guide put on the Hot 100 photo contest.  This contest consists of 10 categories with 10 winning images selected from each category and the goal is to feature the very best of senior portraiture.  This year 6,315 images were submitted from some of the best portrait artists around the globe and I am so pleased to announce that one of my submissions made the cut!  It is truly an honor to have been selected for a second straight year.  Last year my photo of Preston Cole was selected in the “Urban” category, you can find the blog post about that contest and how that image was made here.

Now, without further adieu I am glad to reveal that my sunset image of Class of 2016 Lake City High School Senior Grant Wade was selected in the “Off Camera Flash” category.  Here is the final image:

Here is what the photo looks like straight out of the camera:

This image was made using four different strobes.  The main light was camera right with a 47″ gridded octabox set to a position to give a Rembrandt style lighting pattern.  The remaining three lights were used to light Grant’s Jeep which he restored himself by the way!  I used two strobes with strip boxes camera right and camera left to light the front and sides of the jeep.  Then as I always like to do when I photograph seniors with their automobiles I added a strobe to the inside of the jeep with a colored gel.  Blue seemed appropriate as it would be a complimentary color, matches Grant’s shirt and also is one of his school colors.  This image was captured with a Canon 1DX and 17-40 f4.0 lense set to 1/200 at f5.6 and ISO 100.  Here is a behind the scenes look:

Zach’s Senior Photos

Zach is a senior in the class of 2014 from Lake City High School, we took his senior photos at two different locations in the Coeur d’Alene area.  The first location was a spot that he has enjoyed visiting for many years.  While we were there someone set off what sounded like an M80 which prompted the property owner to send an entourage to find out who was setting off fireworks on their property.  We benefited from this as they parked their classic Toyota Land Cruiser right by where were were taking photos so naturally we had to make use of it as a prop!

2013 Christina Finney Track Meet (Post Falls Photographer)

he 2013 Christina Finney Co-Ed Relays at Post Falls High School included hosted teams from Timberlake, Lakeland, Moscow, Sandpoint, Coeur d’Alene, Lake City and Lewiston.  One of the hard things about covering a track meet is that the events are often spread far apart so it is impossible for one person to be at every event.  For this meet I spent some time at the shot put and discus rings and went back and forth between the track events and the high jump pit. I also grabbed a few pole vault shots on my travels between the throws area and the track.

Final results from each event can be found on Athletic.net and full galleries of photos can be found on my website at this linkhttp://bit.ly/ZvXQ7j
