Behind the Scenes at a Paralympic Photo Shoot

Capturing photos of our Olympic and Paralympic athletes is an important job that no photographer takes lightly — after all, we’ve all seen the kind of firestorm that can result from not doing it well. So when Benjamin Von Wong had the opportunity to photograph Olympic Para Dressage Rider Natasha Baker, he made sure to do it right.

This behind the scenes video shows how he went about planning, lighting and executing the three shots that he was after. Fortunately, all the work seems to have paid off: the final three images capture three unique (and uniquely great) sides to Natasha Baker and the sport she competes in at the world class level.

    Big difference hire a photographer who understands lighting and posing models, instead of a paparazzi photographer.
