The Vancouver Courier pays close attention to high school athletes, and in 2013 I initiated a series about the city’s most elite graduates as they were on the cusp of beginning their varsity careers. Called Our Prospects, these profiles ran like magazine features, with the story overlaid on top of stunning full-page photographs.
I conceived the project and worked as creative director to see each profile through from picking the athlete to directing the photo shoot and finalizing the printed page.
