Last month I had the chance to return to the absolutely beautiful Smith Stearns Tennis Academy in Hilton Head, SC, to do their annual photo shoot. Once again I was lucky enough to get the most awesome Mikhail Thomas to assist me, and boy did we work our you know what’s off. 2 days of shooting with over 12,000 images. Everything from headshots to action to posed action to interiors of housing and fitness facilities.
As usual, the staff was great to work with and of course the athletes (and us) had a blast. I simply can’t say enough about what a joy it is to work with these folks! The interaction between all the coaches and the athletes is nothing short of amazing. I have shot a ton of D1 (and below) tennis, which is great, but seeing what a great time these guys and gals are having is truly a joy to photograph.
Anyway, here’s some of my favorites. I was too lazy to figure out who shot what, but they are all either mine or Mikhail’s 🙂
