The Great Underwear Dash

The Great Underwear dash, or Undie Dash for short has become a yearly ritual for many students at the University of Florida. Near the end of each spring semester, student organizers organize a massive charity drive where students gather in Turlington Plaza at the University of Florida, strip down to their underwear and run a small course that takes them on the edge of campus and back to Turlington Plaza. Afterwards all of the clothes are collected and donated to a local charity.

 

Gator Fly-In

This assignment was absolutely amazing to shoot. I’ve always loved aviation, especially military aviation and I was lucky enough to be able to shoot the first annual Gator Fly-In which featured a T45C “Grosshawk” 2 seat Navy trainer jet, a T-4 “Texan” trainer, and best of all a F/A-18 Super Hornet Fighter Jet. Also at the airport, but not in the show were Harrier Jump Jets. I got to watch the F/A-18 taxi down to the ramp and actually felt some of the jetblast and it’s incredible. Later on, the pilot, Lt. Nicole Johnson, was kind enough to show the cockpit of her jet.

Gainesville Fashion Week – Saturday

Final night of Gainesville Fashion Week was on Saturday, April 9, 2011 at Villa East, Gainesville. It was a pretty tough shoot, as it was just 4 hours of jockeying for the best position. For the final day, I decided to use a 800 watt/second Alienbee strobe hooked up to Paul Buff Vegabond battery pack. I used 3 Pocketwizards to trigger everything and upped my camera setup from 2 bodies previously, 5D Mark II and 1D Mark II to 3 bodies with the addition of a 7D. I used primarily 24-70mm f2.8l and 70-200mm f2.8l IS. I also had a Sigma 12-24mm that I used for super wide angle shots.
