Dragon Hare Studios – Earlier this fall, we headed out to the race track in Lloydminster for some grad portraits with Colton who is graduating in 2015. Motorcross is a huge part of life for Colton and he choose to incorporate it into his portrait session. We ended up with a beautiful evening and I spent some time dangling on the sides of huge jumps in order to catch Colton in action. This image just won “Best in Class – Portrait” in the Professional Photographer’s of Canada in Alberta’s annual print competition! I titled it “The Reason for Mom’s Gray Hair” because my heart was in my throat the entire time this guy was in the air! It was a great thrill to bring home a trophy for Colton’s grad portrait! This image now holds the record for being my first image to score a grade of “Excellence”.
After catching him in action, we did some posed portraits of Colton at the track and then brought him back to the studio for cap/gown and a few more casuals.
Colton, you are fearless, I hope you continue to soar! If you are graduating in 2015, give us a call at 780.853.4277 or send us a facebook message to begin your portrait experience with Dragon Hare!
