ESPN's National Signing Day

Wednesday's assignment took me to Charlotte to serve as the official set photographer for ESPN's National Signing Day broadcast. Below are a few favorite images. Some of the highlights were former Florida head coach Urban Meyer serving as an analyst for the first time and #1 recruit Jadeveon Clowney of Rock Hill stopping by for an interview.

Closet or Shrine

Today's assignment took me to ESPN's studio in Charlotte to photograph a taping of The Experts. One of my favorite parts of the studio is the helmet closet. It's where they keep all of the helmets for each BCS team. It's interesting to watch visitors to the studio who are getting a tour. It's one of their favorite areas as well. They often get quiet and gaze into the room with interest, turning this closet into somewhat of a shrine.

Excited about going back Wednesday to photograph National Signing Day. It's always fascinating to watch how the ESPN crew pulls everything together to make the show go so smoothly. Former Florida coach Urban Meyer will be a part of the talent and my first assignment will be making a portrait of him in studio.
