Swanson’s Got Game

20 Aug 13

We are so excited to finally reveal the Basketball Training test shoot that Marcus photographed earlier this summer in Alberta Park in Northeast Portland. Our producer Kimberly scored big in scouting out such a visually compelling and unique court to shoot on. We love how Marcus played with the juxtaposition of the dynamic motion of the athletes against the geometry of the basketball shelter. And did I mention that we shot an amazing video too, completely in tandem with the stills? Pretty awesome. Go Team!

Our new Photo Illustrator Robb Farrington did some expert work on the stills, really making them pop and energizing them even more. We love how it all came out and we hope you like them too!

Special shout out to all the talent that worked with us that day and Erin Cowan, technical director of the team. Last but not least, thank you Katie Simon and her assistant Kara Arnold for adding their amazing styling skills too!

Check out the photos and be sure to stay tuned for an upcoming post on the motion piece.
