Keith Thompson | Portrait Photography
The definition of an athlete, according to Merriam-Webster is: A person who is trained or skilled in exercises, sports or games requiring physical strength, agility, or stamina. Sounds like there’s a lot going on. So how do you photograph a person who is constantly on the move. Two steps ahead. And on top of it all, fearless. Simple, you have to be fast, quick, and unafraid as well. At our studio, we are always up for a challenge. That is precisely why we worked so well with star basketball player Keith Thompson. Keith is getting ready to take his game to a whole other level by leaving sweet Salt Lake and playing ball in Europe. Although thrilled by this new move, there is a little lady here who will be missed. After taking some sharp shots of him in his suit (and with no shirt at all! ), we moved the shoot outside and saw the softer side of Mr. Thompson and his lovely lady. The two did not seem sad but absolutely happy with where they were. As with any game, the player must live moment by moment and we were happy to help them remember this particular one.
