Precision Shooting…by Picture Place

As a professional photographer, I pride myself on making every shot count.  I recently was commissioned to do a photoshoot for a local Air Rifle Shooting supply company ( with Olympic Rifle Shooter Amanda Furrer.  She won a Bronze medal at the 2007 Pan America Games, and placed 15th in the 50m three positions event in the 2012 Summer Olympics. 

In a sport that demands precision and perfection at every turn, it was a pleasure to work on this project. It was a challenge to work together on poses and setups that made the subject look good and effectively communicate the products, apparel and accessories for the vendor.

I was up for the challenge, and benefited from many years of incorporating props, sports gear and musical instruments with high school senior portraits.

It was really fun getting to know Amanda, and I have great admiration for the discipline and training required for world class athletes like Amanda.

It was fun to work with someone who lives in a world surrounded by like minded, highly motivated, insanely talented athletes, where there is no room for pretenders. Join me in following and supporting Amanda in her journey to Brazil to compete in the 2016 summer games.  For more information, or to follow her on Facebook or Twitter,
