About 13 years ago I was sitting in the restaurant of L’Enfant Plaza Hotel in Washington, DC when I received a call from Lansdowne Resort to find out if it would be possible to come to their location (50 miles away) to take a group photo of 150 MajorLeague Baseball players. I needed to be there for the photo in 2 hours and the client wanted the images back in 48 hours. Well that day I happened to have in my car everything that I needed. (There is something to be said about being prepared.) I was experienced with photographing groups before but 150 was a bit larger then in the past so I called an assistant and we arrived on location in time enough to set up lights and get prepared prior to our 2 hour deadline. I learned something that day which has been a blessing to me and that is how to control a large group. I cut my teeth on Major League Baseball.
Well somehow we got it done, photos in 24 hours not 48 and have created a 13 year relationship with MLB.
Even though the photos appear the same every year, each poses it unique challenges. This year one the participants thought is was more important to text during the shoot than it was to pay attention to instructions.
Well this is the class of 2010.
