I wanted to do a shoot with a runner I have for a while and I could ask for a more is a fantastic runner then Grace . Grace is a highly regraded New Hartford High School cross country runner with an impressive endurance for the elements. I should explain, when we did this shoot we scheduled the idea and asked Grace to shoot within the space of a few days not realizing how bitter cold and windy it would be. She didn’t seem fazed by the weather even though my hands were numb to the point I had trouble adjusting my camera.
I worked with another photographer Tom Sblendorio and we initially were shooting just for practice/fun but after seeing the image online I was approached to use one of the images on the cover of a catalog for a local institution. More on that when it come out.
