This is a promotional photo I did for the Jim Rose Circus. Jim Rose and his circus are best known for appearances on television shows The Simpsons, X Files, and David Letterman. They also toured in Lollapalooza, with Nine Inch Nails and other bands. The group is going on tour with professional wrestler Jake the Snake Roberts and needed a photo to distribute to media. Many people believe the character from the movie The Wrestler was based on Roberts' life. It was great to meet Jim and his wife and hear about their stories from the road.
Here are some recent photos of Olympic high jumper Vashti Cunningham for Sports Illustrated. At just 18, the recent high school graduate is poised to become one of the world's best high jumpers. Her mother, Felicity de Jager, is a former professional ballerina and her father is former NFL quarterback Randall Cunningham. Growing up in Pennsylvania I can remember playing football as a kid and how everyone always wanted to be the Philadelphia Eagle's Randall Cunningham.
