In June I had the pleasure of photographing the guys behind Merriment Hardware for Alternative Apparel. They really got into the game on a trip to Brazil and decided to make their own paddles. I have only played paddle ball a few times but I really have never seen more beautiful paddles to play the game with.
I was excited about this project because I never dove into what is categorized as “lifestyle” photography. I always thought that it would be harder to get genuine expressions from people but I guess that goes to show you how anything is possible give the right motivation. I also have thank the Gods for having this shoot be with such fun people. At the end of the shoot I got to play some paddle ball and we were all happy with the images.
