Andrew knows how to call audibles – he was the quarterback at Bloomfield Hills High School and a teammate of our Tony, and we watched him grow and develop into a fine player through hard work. He’s a great kid, and an audible if you didn’t know is basically the decision to adapt and change your plan depending on the circumstances – such as what the defense is presenting before the play during a game, or the weather and timing on a photo session perhaps. In our case we improvised for some textures instead of going into a city setting and we were able to get into the locker room at BHHS for a couple cool photos and to warm up since it was freezing outside. BUT we still got the nighttime bleacher photo that we wanted so it all worked out to be a winning session!
Audibles With Andrew
Let’s start in the studio with a dapper formal picture:
We also have some behind the scenes – first with Instagram Live from the studio in uniform:
We switched up from formal to uniform and back again for both in studio and on location – audibles remember? Let’s head over to the school at this point but first with another stylish up close pic before we get into game gear!
At this point we headed into the locker room and we’ve got more behind the scenes from Facebook Live this time:
…and the result:
Andrew totally looks ready to go out and do battle….and we’ll stay with the football look for one of our faves to do – we’ve only done this a few times ever and each time it’s killer…
And there you have it! We enjoyed watching Andrew on the field this past season with the rest of the Blackhawks – they all made us proud, and we had a great time creating these images and calling audibles with Andrew! We hoped you enjoyed the highlights!

When we say we were up and at ’em for some Laker Pride with Jared we aren’t kidding! The first photo you’ll see in these sneak peeks is one you would assume was a night time shot, but it was actually a morning shot before sunrise! The schedule just worked out that way so we said let’s go for it, and you know what? There’s something to be said for that “early to bed early to rise” thing… ha! Meanwhile Jared is a cool dude and his dad Phil joined us who was very helpful having dabbled in some photography himself. Needless to say, it was a memorable morning and the proof is in the portraits.
Laker Pride with Jared…
So for the first shot we headed back to the West Bloomfield High School SWAMP (that’s the nickname for their football stadium) where we’ve photographed a couple of Jared’s teammates this year to get what has become somewhat of a signature football shot of ours – another winner – Jared looks the part for sure!
Looking good – Laker Pride indeed…
Once we got the photos we needed at the Swamp we headed over to Birmingham to take a few city photos and we have a little behind the scenes fun for you starting with the replay of our Facebook Live broadcast:
Here are two of the resulting photos from this segment of the morning:
Big fans of that one… and one more:
At this point we brought it back home to the studio to finish up and here is the behind the scenes as Jared donned his letter jacket and showed off a little versatility with a multi-sport approach, and maybe our first shot put photo (?)….
And here is the result!
Awesome stuff. We had one heck of a morning with this guy and we hope you enjoyed the highlights of our time with him!
