Bellingham editorial photographer | Western’s Xavier Dailly
One of my first assignments for Western Washington University’s newspaper The Western Front was to make portraits of golfer Xavier Dailly. It was a blustery and sporadically-rainy day out, but Xavier was a great subject to work with and a good sport about the less-than-ideal weather outside.

We shot on the 1st and 4th holes of the Bellingham Golf and Country Club, with Xavier driving the golf cart as I tried to hold onto my camera, light stands w/ flashes, and gear backpack — a surprisingly-difficult feat with the bumpy cart paths. That is just part of the fun of location portraits: you never quite know what the location will do for a shoot.
Strobist info: lighting was accomplished with 3 Nikon SB-800 Speedlights, bare-bulb, triggered with Pocket Wizard Transceivers. Shot with a Nikon D300 and 18-35 or 80-200.
Thanks for looking!
