Photographing the Athlete // John Huet

by Erika Brooks Adickman on March 12, 2015

John Huet was recently featured on Photo District News Online where he shared some tips for getting a winning portrait when working with high profile athletes like Tiger Woods, The Big 3, Shaq and P.K. Subban, to name a few.


John recommends “try[ing] to find out a little bit about the person…try to use something he or she’s familiar with or something they’ll react to. He also reminds those prone to being star struck, “…it’s just another person you’re directing. It’s no different than the portrait of the computer engineer you’ve done the day before…”.  He makes it sound so easy, doesn’t he?
