I like photographing high school seniors. People who stand on the edge of the rest of their lives. Of course we all do, but putting aside the high school years and preparing to forge ahead with career plans is a special time in a person's life and I love it when someone asks me to capture a person at that moment in his or her life.
I had the opportunity to capture John in a place that he loves. He spent a lot of time running on the paths and roadways at this particular forest preserve in the Chicago northwest suburbs. No doubt thinking about things like the next thing on his schedule or his next musical composition or any one of a number of things going on in his life at the time. This time I caught him thinking about where he's going to go next. And if these pictures are any indication, he's going to go there with confidence, a good attitude and tons of character.
His future looks bright.
