What a blessing it was to meet and photograph this outstanding young man! Drew is not only a photographer’s dream (obviously a good looking guy), but was an absolute pleasure to work with. He and his mom came to me with some defined ideas on what his senior portrait session should include. An incredible athlete, it was important to Drew to include his love of basketball in his senior portraits. We had some fun coming up with different ideas to implement, and his session stretched from a concrete garage and alleyway, to lush greenery at at home-town location, to the fields, courts and locker room of Pandora-Gilboa High School.
Downtown Findlay Senior Portraits
Our first set took place in downtown Findlay, where we took advantage of the clean lines and urban feel of a local parking garage and adjacent alleyway. Drew had chosen an on-trend narrow-cut suit for this location and threw in a basketball for good measure.
Senior Pictures in Local Green Spaces
Back in Drew’s home town of Pandora, he and his mom Leah led me to a location boasting shallow waters and lush greenery. I always get a little nervous shooting in locations I haven’t visited before, but this one was truly beautiful and suited our needs perfectly.
Senior Pictures with Pets
Heading back to his school’s campus grounds, Drew made a little detour to pick up his dog for a few shots. She was not entirely happy with this turn of events, but we managed to get a few nice images before moving on to the ball field.
Baseball Senior Pictures
While basketball is Drew’s primary sport, baseball is also one of his passions, and we chose to commemorate this at the PG ball field and dugout. The sinking sun provided some beautiful light for this series.
Basketball Senior Pictures
Our final set of images was captured back in the PG locker room and the neighboring gymnasium. Using some off-camera flash yielded vibrant color and drama to this series.
This was a fun session with a wonderful family. In getting to know Drew over the course of our work together, I found him to be an outstanding young man; confident, courteous, kind and a leader whom I am certain will do great things as he continues his basketball career at Huntington University this fall.
Congratulations on your achievements, Drew! And, thank you for choosing BLP!
