Here are some recent photos I took of singing great Gladys Knight for her new album, which was released late last year. The record company and I decided to shoot the photos inside a giant house located in Las Vegas. We ended up getting a ton of time for the photos and everyone involved was great to work with. I used a giant Westcott umbrella for most of the photos and mixed it with natural light and artificial back lighting. A special thanks to Jenna Dosch and Rudy Ortega for their help.
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.
