When Mak Rabbitt Photography received the email from Mrs. Parks with her vision of having a photo of her son jumping the fountain at Columbus, Ohio’s Bicentennial Park, I was a little skeptical…..well they both made me eat my skepticism with a side of humble fries!
Being a photographer for nearly 3 decades I have witnessed my fair share of talent from surfers, skateboarders, and models, but this young man was something special. Marshaan is completely self-taught and exudes a level of confidence I have not experienced in professional athletes! Not to mention he has a vertical that triumphs LeBron's! During our session, I asked him if he could do a back flip, he gave me a half smile and this was the result……
HE CAN FLY!! HE CAN LITERALLY FLY!
This is not a video but the raw power of the Nikon D3s shooting at 11 Frames Per Second!
Not only is Marshaan full of raw talent, he is one handsome young man and very comfortable in front of the lens. Even working with experienced models they require a little direction from time to time, however Marshaan did his thing and let it flow completely natural delivering outstanding results for this downtown Columbus, Ohio photo shoot.
As the sun began to set on what we refer to as the “Magic Hour” Marshaan and Mother Nature had a bit of a competition and it was just about all the beauty I could capture in a single exposure. We could not have asked for a better day or a better back drop for these photos. I only wish my talents were as great as those of my clients that I have the opportunity to work with. I am forever grateful for the opportunity to have created these images for Marshaan for I know one day I will see his name in lights on the marquee. I hope you enjoy these photos as much as I enjoyed creating them. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule your photo session or event with Mak Rabbitt Photography.
