Seattle Sports Photography at Discovery Park + UW Campus | Anthony Targan

Anthony is a friend and former colleague of mine. He’s also a fabulous athlete and has qualified for and placed in races like the Boston marathon. When he’s in town from Michigan, we often run together, though my skill is by far no match for his. I was so happy and proud that when he needed some sports portraits and head shots for his book jacket, he came to me.

We staged our photo session in two parts. The plan was to photograph him at Discovery Park in one morning, but the weather didn’t cooperate and we nearly froze and blew over the bluff into the ocean. I had to pry my hands open after that session. We did get some great shots at Discovery Park, but still had more to do, so we met the next morning at the University of Washington main campus and had a second session photographing on the grounds. I can’t complain, because I always enjoy Anthony’s company, and I got two free breakfasts at the fabulous Portage Bay Cafe. Mmm~!

I’m still new to sports photography, and it’s something I never imagined I would have an affinity for. But, as an athlete myself, I seem to be drawn to it and now that I’ve sampled a little, I’d like to do more! Particularly, I’m thinking it would be fun to do before-and-after portrait sessions with men and women who have partnered with a personal trainer. It would be promotion for their business as well as mine… and fabulous photos for our clients!

What do you think of that idea?

Christen - You could always come to Jackson and shoot some radtastic snowboarders … you know, for practice. 🙂

MCH - Love photo 6. Such a neat shot.

Allison - These could be great as the “Rave Run” photo in Runners World mag!

Kat - Anthony suggested that and I agreed, but they’ve already done Discovery Park! 🙁
