Originally I wasn’t going to blog about the ad campaign I shot of Felix Hernandez of the Seattle Mariners. The shots were good, but the shoot was overall pretty straight forward…. Photographer, crew and client show up, wait for an hour, then wait for another hour, wait a couple more, athlete shows up and asks how long the shoot should take.
However, after turning on ESPN this weekend I have had a change of heart. The reason for this is that King Felix pitched his first perfect game last week, making him one of 23 pitchers to have ever accomplished such a feat. Funny enough, such a performance will most likely secure that I will photograph him again for next year’s campaign, however this time I will bring a book.
Congrats King Felix.
