I’ve been photographing the Family Circle Cup woman’s professional tennis tournament for the last five years in a row for various publications. In 2005 I was asked to be on that esteemed crew of “Official Photographers” for the tournament. That was an honor in itself! So imagine how elated I was when Robin Reynolds, the Tournament Director, called to tell me that one of my images had been selected for this year’s BANNER!!! The Banner is a 4-story tall display of the previous year’s champion that hangs from the top of the stands outside Center Court Stadium. It’s literally 40-feet tall x 47-feet wide! As we gear up for this year’s tournament, April 8th-15th, I am humbled by this great honor. And I feel privileged to be a part of this incredible sporting event and the amazingly talented photographers who literally work around the clock during that week to capture all the excitement and bring it to the fans!
