I am still in shock that my summer in Miami is over. But looking back, the reason why I lost track of time was because of how busy I have been. The past two months, more so than the previous two, have helped develop me into a double-dipping machine while on assignment. Nearly half of my assignments throughout the past two months have required me to take stills as well as gather good audio, unique B-Roll and conduct interviews in both English and sometimes Spanish. The following three video pieces are not entirely the greatest on their own but what makes me proud is realizing I was able to balance both video and photo in order to create an all around visual story package about a specific event or individual. I may have put in a few too many photos but what can I say, Miami is a visual city. Thanks for looking!

Unfortunately I never found a story during my time in the deep South, however, I did push myself to create more of a photo essay on more than one occasion. The one I am sharing with you today documents the reigning Florida high school football state champions, Flanagan High School, taking the field for the first practice of the season. My goal during the 4 hours I photographed them was to show the emotions going through every young man. From locker room speeches talking about building a band of brothers to helping teammates during the first conditioning drills of the summer; the first day back is a roller coaster.
