Andrew Chong, editor of Hockey Now booked us to do their cover when Griffin Reinhart and Morgan Reilly were just youngins (a few years ago). They still are.
I got to meet them and their dads and not knowing what the future would hold but knowing their successes counted that day.
Meeting their dads really gave me a glimpse into the men these boys were becoming. When I shot the images, I watched these guys hang and be “friends” with their dads. You could see the deep respect and love even in the harassing and joking. The images of them, their individual headshots, with and without sports gear, and and images with their dads are in archives somewhere. But when I found this great article online in the Edmonton Journal , it reminded me of the shoot. Great story and you have to love this quote from Morgan,
I understand your career isn’t made on draft day, your career is made down the road, that you have to prove yourself no matter what.
It’s about the journey! Congrats.
