shawn johnson

shawn was crazy easy to shoot.  i mean, most times i end up looking through the photos at the end of a shoot to see which ones are usable, then i make my selects from those.  but with shawn, every time the shutter opened it was a winner.  and that pretty much how it’s been for shawn lately – she just can’t stop winning.  she nailed down the gold on balance beam in the 2008 olympics in beijing (check out the standing backflip full twist at 2:07 – holy moly!) and just won dancing with the stars.  that’s pretty much a big deal.  especially when you have all that under your belt before 18.  when i was 18, i was living out of a VW bus eating little debbie snack cakes and drinking half-and-half out of the carton.

kevin tan – 2008 olympics gymnastics men’s team captain

my shoot with kevin was fast and furious, but i snagged some rad shots.  this guy is pretty much like wow.  underneath that calm looking facade is a gymnastics machine that is ripped like some jeans in williamsburg.

olympian jessica lopez

jessica lopez has been a gymnast since she was 3 years old.  that’s insane.  i mean, when she was learning how to tumble, i was learning to color inside the lines.  but all that training has paid off and has given her a laundry list of achievements, including going to beijing for the 2008 olympics.  and my coloring still sucks.
