In the spirit of the Olympics and the celebration of athletic achievement, I’m very pleased to start this week by sharing a new series of athlete profiles by Toronto photographer and director Finn O’Hara. The images feature a diverse group of amateur athletes that O’Hara photographed for a campaign promoting the athletic city of Toronto.
This is one of those jobs that gets all the pieces involved: pre-production meetings, location scouting, talent scouting, wardrobe approvals, prop approvals, etc. It’s also one of those productions that I think shows how truly talented our internal and local production peeps are in finding everything that you and your client are looking for: need a young, caucasian high jumper with long hair, who’s capable of multiple takes over the course of the day? Check. Need a venue that will host you for the day at a moderate rate? Check. Need to get this shot within a tight timeline and on budget? Check, check.
For a behind the scenes look at the production of the high jumping photo above, please check out this post from April.
