Special Olympics World Games Take Los Angeles // John Huet

Tess Trojan

John Huet is no stranger to the Olympics, having photographed at every Summer and Winter Olympic Games for the past 13 years. Last year John brought his passion and exceptional eye to the 2014 Special Olympics USA Games where he found endless inspiration in the athleticism, pride, camaraderie, determination and joy of these Olympic athletes.

The 2015 Special Olympics World Summer Games (in partnership with Bank of America) will be held in Los Angeles July 25 – August 2, bringing with it 7,000 athletes from around the world. For Bank of America’s #PassTheFlame campaign, John had the privilege of photographing several of these Olympic athletes, each owning their field (or court, pool, gym, course, etc.). We’re so excited to share these inspiring portraits of some of 2015’s competitors. Good luck to all! Let the Games begin!

John Huet Communication Arts Winners-1
We couldn’t be prouder to share that images by both John Huet and Edo Kars have been selected for this year’s Communication Arts Photo Annual. If you’ve been following closely, you’ll recall John’s 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics image and Edo’s bug close-ups from previous posts. We’re sure you’re as unsurprised as we are that John and Edo’s unforgettable images have received the recognition they deserve, but it’s worth noting that their work is among the 157 winning images chosen from a staggering 4,421 entries. That’s a lot to be proud of.  A huge congrats to John and Edo!

If you’re so inclined, copies of the annual are available for purchase here.

Catch This Drift // John Huet

by Marilyn Cadenbach on July 8, 2015

John Huet - Redbull Drift Shifters

Gentleman, start your engines! Last December, the Red Bull Drift Shifters, an annual international drift competition, returned to Auckland, New Zealand. Lucky for us, John Huet was on hand to capture the madness of these cars making hairpin turns as they navigate the competition’s giant pinball-inspired track. With 10,000 fans cheering them on, the drivers rack up points by coming as close to the course obstacles as they can in what’s been deemed ‘the survival of the ballsiest.’ Gives a whole different meaning to the phrase “burn rubber”, doesn’t it?

Martijn Oort does it again! This time lending his talents to Mercedes-Benz, he captures the celebratory spirit of the 20th anniversary of its Sprinter van and the 2015 very limited “Edition Sprinter.” Blending landscape photography and CGI, Martijn delivers to the Mercedes-Benz ‘best or nothing’ tagline in this first in a series of stunning ads for the brand.

Prom Central // John Huet

John-Huet-Prom-Moments-1

We’ve come to expect the unexpected from John Huet, but nothing’s surprised us more than these offbeat moments that he captured at the annual pre-prom gathering in Manchester-by-the-Sea, Massachusetts.  The images sent us on a trip down memory lane where we dug out photos from our own first prom and enjoyed more than a little comic relief.  Ah, those know-it-all, awkward but confident teenage years!
