Bellingham editorial photographer | Western’s Xavier Dailly

Posted in assignment work, Bellingham, editorial work, portraits, sports, Washington by bermanphotos on April 3, 2010

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!

Daniel

    Daniel,
    Really excellent shots. I occasionally do short posts about WWU golf for golfwashington.com, and my own web site bellinghamgolfer.com. I’d love to use a couple of your images of Xavier. Trouble is, I have no budget, (at the moment it actually costs me money to publish my site) so I was wondering if there was any possibility I might be able to use them in exchange for a photo credit, a link to your site, and perhaps a little blurb about you at the end of the text.
    Regards,
    Tony
