Charlie Strong for ESPN Magazine
Despite having been a photo editor at The Daily Texan, The University of Texas student newspaper, I had never been inside the Darrell K. Royal Texas Memorial Stadium, which made this assignment extra special!
I got 15 minutes with the new UT football coach Charlie Strong in July. On that hot Austin morning, I ran around making as many portraits as I could in that time for ESPN Magazine. With great assistants and more extension cords than I have ever used before, we hopped from station to station I had set up with little down time in between. Strong was a great sport, not letting the heat bother him or questioning the directions I gave him for the shots. Thanks again to the folks at ESPN Magazine who are a pleasure to work with and finally got me on the UT field.
