What better way to get a new year of photography off on the right path than to snap photos of one my childhood baseball heroes? I was contacted by an old friend from high school about shooting an event for her company, Neustar, which just happened to include the Ironman, Cal Ripken, Jr. as their guest speaker. Of course I said yes, who wouldn’t want the chance to shoot the original great No. 8!?!
Cal came out for a meet and greet with a select group of Neustar employees and he couldn’t have been nicer. There were a couple of times when his manager had to break up a conversation so the line could get moving again. I’m sure if it was up to Cal we would still be there and he would still be taking the time to talk to each and every person in that line. It was such a blast to not only meet Cal but get a chance to listen to his talk and shoot as well.
And the girl who made this possible, Tricia!
