Shorthorn Shots of the Week 4/2

It was an exciting week to shoot. My Package on the soon to be official UTA Parkour Club ran this week with an extended cutline (mini-story), stills and a video. I also had a pretty good shoot as the Mavericks baseball team took on TCU. My timing was on and I didn't have a lot of shots with people in the way so I was happy. To end the week, the 29th Annual Bed Races finally took place after being postponed last semester due to inclement weather. Less people showed up than usual but it was still a fun even. I got another chance to do a stills and video combo that I'm pretty happy with. Enjoy.

Santana has only been doing parkour for a couple of weeks and said that he initially became interested after seeing action movies featuring parkour moves. (The Shorthorn: Andrew Buckley)
