Soccer player, David Horst, was one of those dream subjects -- up for anything and more than willing to play in front of the camera.Read More
Your subject stands there. Ready. The question, "what do you want me to do?" soon follows. That's how it usually begins. But with this project I was able to turn that question around and ask "What do you do? As an athlete, what types of motions do you go through?" And then I would have them show me.
Body of Work 2012 is the result of a personal project I worked on throughout 2012. A series of photographs that highlight the college athlete and their body, the project features twenty athletes from a variety of sports - doing what they do.

Real Salt Lake midfielder, Kyle Beckerman, and his fiancé, Kate, first met during a video shoot at Rio Tinto Stadium. Besides Kyle's obvious connection with the stadium, it was a location that meant something to both of them and their story together so I was happy they wanted to include it in their pictures.
