This week we are visiting with Jim Cowsert from Grapevine Texas. Jim is a freelance media photographer who also does senior photos, family portraits, corporate portraits, and sports photography. The gallery page on Jim’s web site ( www.GrapevinePhoto.com ) reveals a particularly passion for sports photography. He has worked for many major league clubs, been featured in numerous sports publications and his images have been honored among Sports Illustrated’s Pictures of the Year.
One of Jim’s recent assignments brought together his skill for corporate portraiture and his love for sports. The Major League Baseball trainers were in Dallas for their winter meeting and Jim’s assignment was to take head shots of all the trainers… Alright, so this was not game three of the World Series, but the assignment was not without it’s challenges.
One hundred different head shots had to be taken in under 2 hours and for the convenience of the trainers, Jim had to set-up in the dimly lit hallway outside the meeting room.
Jim got the shots using his Qflash T5D-R set in Quantum’s 26″ Octobox for the main light and a Qflash Trio with the 12″ Quantum softbox for a kicker light. These were set in manual mode and fired with the Pilot on top of his Canon 1D MkIV.
