Bonney Lake Cross Country Print With Jacob Schlosser

A crazy year for our model athlete program.
We knew we would have to dig in and get creative to make everything for these student athletes happen.

With the 2021 sports seasons being drastically shortened it put our production of artwork on a serious time crunch.
Luckily Jacob was able to get a uniform for XC.
And this helped us get jump on the production of this artwork.

I already had the background photo that I was going to use for this piece that I had taken in south east Idaho that I had taken in my wife and my travels around the northwest collecting ideas for future projects.

We did the photoshoot for Jacob in a parking lot on a sunny fall late afternoon. We set up three lights for this shoot and relied on the sun for a 4th. This gave us the ability to recreate the lighting that we had in the background image we used for the background.

Bonney Lake Panther Jacob Schlosser Swim Print.

Its been a tough year to get print projects done.
We had to get creative in order to make some prints happen.
This was one of those projects.

Fortunately we found a bit of warm weather and a fairly warm lake to help make this print possible.
No one was staying dry for this photo session. My wife knee deep in water is holding the portable studio light above me. I am waste deep but leaning over chest in the water to get low to the water for the shot as Jacob swims towards the camera. Luckily we managed to get a perfect shot at about attempt number 5 out of 7 tries.

Earlier in the fall I had been thinking about what I wanted to do for this print for Jacob. I new I wanted to do something with a gorgeous river or lake setting. And so we decided to stop at the Naches river on trip coming back from eastern Washington. I had short hike to this spot on the river and waded through river until I found a picturesque spot.

The look on Jacobs face after presenting this to him says it all!

The image is printed on 16×20′ Kodak metallic paper which really makes the colors pop and creates lots of depth. You have to see metallic paper prints in person to appreciate them.
A photo on the web doesn’t do them justice. Thanks Jacob for literally being willing to dive in and make this print possible!
