University of Wyoming
About a month ago I did a series of portraits at the University of Wyoming’s football media day. The photos are for our Wyoming football tab that hit newsstands today. Shooting portraits at media day can be extremely hit or miss because the players are being pulled a hundred different ways to do interviews. Luckily, I had three friends who helped corral the players for me. I ended up setting up a little studio at one end of the stadium away from the action so I wouldn’t have random people walking into my backgrounds. I shot all the players using a three-light setup with no modifiers to give the football players a very harsh, tough look. This is something I’ve done this fall for all of the football portraits I’ve shot.
I drove over to Laramie today to shoot some portraits of a few Wyoming football players. While the players were getting ready for the team portrait, I shot a few in-between moments.
