October turned out to be a VERY busy month for me, felt like I was home for just a day or two 🙂 Toward the end of the month I travelled back to the Mouth of Wilson, VA to photograph the Oak Hill Academy’s basketball team for the MaxPrep’s Preseason Top 10 Rankings. I absolutely love the drive to Oak Hill (and the campus), and also have a tremendous amount of respect for Head Coach Steve Smith and his amazing basketball program. The Academy was founded in 1878. Here’s a slideshow from MaxPreps…
As I said, I love the drive to Oak Hill Academy. Some of the most gorgeous country around! (plus it’s like the Christmas Tree capital of the world, there were hundreds of tractor trailers loaded with trees heading out).
As usual, Coach Smith and his athletes were nothing short of amazing to work with! They allowed me plenty of time and full access to the facilities. As I was shooting, I transferred the images straight to an iPad which quickly wound up in the hands of the athletes and was a huge hit with them. 🙂
Huge Thanks to Coach Smith and his wife Lisa for all the help, and I hope to be back next year!
