The first time I met my Glencoe Senior Rep, Collin Lashway, he looked much different than the man I had the privilege of photographing. On a cloudy Saturday morning, he and his mom were watching his little sister’s baseball game (my daughter is on the same team). Dressed in his Saturday morning, cold weather gear and sporting long locks under his ski hat, he was definitely not photo ready (nor was I for that matter).
However, the man that stepped out onto the streets of Portland, clean shaved and sporting a freshly pressed shirt and tie could have come right of the page of GQ.
As a member of Glencoe Lacrosse team, you could see he was a team player by his willingness to help during the shoot. On a few occasions we had to remind him that he was the talent and not the assistant. He was funny, charming, polite and patient. We worked together to find some poses that worked while staying in his comfort zone. Whenever I asked him to just be himself, his trademark smirk came out!
Collin will be representing Danyel Rogers Photography and Glencoe Lacrosse as a senior next year. If you can’t find him on the field or in class, you might want to try Gimre’s Shoes in Downtown Hillsboro where he will be working this summer. Cheer him on, ask to see the trademark smirk or stop on in for pair of shoes and don’t forget to ask him for a postcard for $35 print credit at www.danyelrogersphotography.com.
