I photographed five college mascots in late June for a story about student mascots for Oklahoma Living Magazine. It was HOT that day – nearly 100 degrees by the time we got everyone onto the UCO football field in Edmond. I got everything set up and tested before the mascots arrived so that I could minimize their time I the heat in their costumes, since I knew they would be sweltering inside. Temperatures on the field were approaching 120 degrees! I ended up photographing them for about 30 minutes, both as a group and individually. They were happy that I brought ice cold bottled water to the shoot! My editor Anna Politano did a great job on the layout. I was very pleased with how the story turned out.
