It's hard to believe that we are gearing up for football season already but that is exactly what we are now working on at the Journal Gazette. I shot 225 football portraits to be used in our upcoming Football Tab and for use through out the season during High School Football Media Day at North Side High School.
Editing and shooting all these head shots at once is a bit tedious, but I can remember when we had to drive to each of the high schools, instead. I really prefer one really long day than adding all the driving time that used to be involved in this process.

Editor's Note: The photo above was taken by Laura J. Gardner. Our plan was for Laura and Cathie to work on the headshots together. Laura ended up helping for about 2 hours, then had to go out on another news story. In the meantime, she managed to get some shots of the chaos involved. Our business requires that we all stay flexible!
