Athlete Stock Photo Shoot – Charlotte, NC

I’m not a morning person, so sometimes I wonder why I fell in love with photography.  Often when shooting on location, you have to get up early, as was the case recently.  The shoot time was 8am at a park.  This shoot was for stock photography, which I really enjoy for it’s technical challenge.  Stock photography is so different from other photography because everything in the photograph has to be perfect.  Example, in a headshot, a stoplight may add character, but in stock photography, it’s considered a distraction.  Also, for stock photography, there can be no signs of any sort.  Signs of where you are or signs such as logos. Ok, enough with the lesson stock photography.
