back in december of 2013 i had the pleasure to photograph Meb Keflezighi (for sony), this years boston marathon winner! meb couldn’t of been a better sport as i captured the various angles and expressions needed for the ad.
off set he was unassuming & gracious but when he stepped infront of the camera, things changed. i asked him to get into the head space of competing in a race. after about 15 frames, meb’s friendly, relaxed deameanor transformed into this quiet intensity, unwavered by the off set chatter, lighting changes and my specific directions.
i can only imagine the thoughts and emotions that went through meb’s mind as he led the pack. i like to think that i got a glimpse of the man that pulled off this impressive win!!!
