PDN MAGAZINE – JJ MILLER: "GETTING A WINNING PORTRAIT OF A SPORTS STAR"Location: Worldwide
Excerpts from a recent PDN article:
"We asked JJ Miller — for tips on how you can get the nuanced and interesting shots you want from a professional athlete.
1. BE PREPARED
Miller estimates that he usually gets between five and ten minutes to capture 25 shots, as well as to create video footage. Increasingly, he also needs shots for social media and viral content. As a result, he makes sure he has drawn up not only lighting set-ups, but also sketches of poses he’d like the athletes to try. “If you plan well in advance, ten minutes actually seems like a lot of time,” he notes.
2. GET FAMILIAR WITH THE LANGUAGE
Before he became a professional photographer, Miller played baseball in college. As a result, he’s familiar with the language that professional athletes, and especially baseball players, use when being coached. He is able to utilize this lingo when he’s asking them to assume poses in front of the camera. “I explain it to them in terms they understand,” he says. He doesn’t believe it’s necessary for a sports photographer to have been an athlete, however. “You just have to understand how the body moves,” he says.
3. DO YOUR RESEARCH
Researching an athlete in advance helps Miller determine whom he should have on his crew, to make sure there is someone on the set the subject can relate to. Sometimes when Miller is shooting a female athlete, for example, he’ll have a female camera assistant on set."
