A Diving Football Catch Through a Face Mask

View Point II

This image was taken for stock photography. I wanted to create an image that shows the view point from a players perspective. I chose to shoot through a face mask to really give the feeling of looking through a helmet. The player is diving making a catch that was just in reach.

Branden is one hell of a sports model. Nothing is impossible and a real pleasure to work with. I rarely say anything, but he had to have been one of the greatest people I have ever worked with.
