Smithsonian Magazine

I’ve been pretty busy lately with work that I unfortunately can’t share at the moment. However, about a month ago I was approached by Smithsonian Magazine to use one of my photos in their upcoming Olympic issue. I was really excited with the opportunity because even though I’ve seen my work on billboards and 40ft tall banners I have never had my work published in a magazine. I will admit that I hoped that I would eventually happen but never thought that it would be in Smithsonian Magazine. I expected something more like ESPN or Sports Illustrated but I’m thrilled that they decided to use my image. There was talk for a little while about the possibility of being on the cover but I’m more than happy to be on the Table of Contents.

While we are on the topic of Ashton, I want to congratulate him on breaking the World Record and winning the Decathlon at the US Olympic trials. Ashton is a good friend of mine and a former teammate at the University of Oregon. I couldn’t be more happy with all that he has accomplished and I can’t wait to see what he does in a few weeks in the Olympics. Definitely keep your eye on the Decathlon competition because he’s going to do some amazing things.

You can pick up this issue of Smithsonian Magazine on newsstands now.
