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.
