Had a nice portrait shoot for ESPN the Magazine recently, spending four hours with the American-Record Holder javelin thrower Kara Patterson. She was a pleasure to shoot and we spent most of the time documenting her training she does on the gymnastic rings to strengthen her shoulders to hurl javelins over 200ft! Here are a couple shots from our session, hope you enjoy!
