Growing up a boxing fan, getting an assignment to photograph Sugar Ray Leonard was a dream come true. I was honored to be selected to shoot this cover for Athlon Sports. Ray was a true pro to work with and as expected, a complete gentleman.
I am happy to share some behind the scenes footage and images of my sixth EA Sports, Madden cover shoot. This year, the fan vote came down to Cam Newton and Richard Sherman. We had both uniforms on hand, only finding out on ESPN who the winner was just 30 minutes prior to the shoot.
The total shoot time was about thirty minutes. Richard Sherman was easy to work with and even shook every hand in the building at the end with a "thank you".
It takes a large crew to pull off these shoots, so thanks to everyone that contributed to making it happen!
More to come in a couple of weeks about our shoot with Leo Messi in Barcelona. EA is starting to share some of our work!
