Tennis Photo Shoot...

A couple weeks ago my rock star producer and I pulled together the idea to shoot some amazing tennis pros at a set of local indoor tennis courts with some pretty dramatic lighting setups.  We cast tennis stars Ryan Meyer and Kara Hussey, pulled our creative and tech teams together to shoot last week.  We scheduled this personal shoot in the dead of winter here in the Midwest to give us something to not only sharpen our creative swords, but to also try some new lighting setups. Thanks much to all of our team and Five Seasons Sports Fitness Club's team for all their efforts to make this shoot a success!

More of the final images can be viewed  in the portfolio section of my website at

For now here's a few of my favorite takes from the day and a couple behind the scenes shots. And yes, I took several tennis balls to the body during the shoot!  This isn't the powder puff leagues after all!!!
