Newark – Today I was assign to photograph Athlete of the Year for The News Journal in Wilmington Delaware. So you guys know already, I will try to envision my set-up prior to arriving at the location. Well, For me it’s quite normal to do this being that I will only have a short period of time to work with the athlete.

I arrived on the campus of Padua Academy in Wilmington Delaware. I met with Lauren DiSabatino, Associate Athletic Director who introduced me to my models, Volleyball standout Emily Jarome and Cross Country Champion Lydia Olivere.

I immediately made up in my mind that I was going to use multiple speed-lights (4) to light both subject in the gym.
