Flash From The Past: May 12, 2001

John Gress

I remember this day like it was yesterday. I was 4 months into freelancing again after quitting my newspaper job in Topeka, Kansas, when the Portland Tribune hired me to shoot portraits of the city’s new women’s football team. I was truly finding my voice as a portrait photographer back then. Just looking at these pictures today has me wondering how long it took me to learn not to loom over people or shoot portraits with super wide angle lenses.
