Phil Lacasse was released from prison three months ago after serving more than ten years for armed robbery. He was desperately looking for work but hopeful for his situation. I met him at his halfway house and he was able to sign out for 45 minutes to do the photos. We hopped into my car and drove around for a few minutes until we came to some railroad tracks. Railroad tracks are an irresistible location for photos when your time is limited. We hopped out off the car, I set up some lights, and we took the photos. It is hard to imagine how difficult it is for parolees to find work and get their life back together.
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.
