When asked about my strategy while shooting an enormous event like the Olympics, I said,”In competitive sports you’re always trying to look for what’s different, what hasn’t been done – there are so many photographs of the same person crossing the finish line – how do you find that iconic shot? You have no idea when it’s going to happen. My strategy is to figure out what’s going to make someone feel like they were actually at the event.”

AtEdge, a marketing program that connects art buyers and photo producers with creative professionals, recently featured me on their blog. Click the link to read the rest of the article “JOHN HUET: CAPTURING THE POWER AND VULNERABILITY OF THE COMPETITIVE ATHLETE” on their site!

PHOTO STORY – “A ROSE”

I bought these roses for my wife on Valentines Day. Every day, I walked past them and with each day they were a little closer to dead. I don’t normally take still lifes, but I figured I’d snap a picture of the roses before they were completely gone. I’m not sure why. I guess because I thought they looked nice, and I take pictures of things I like to look at. Or maybe, I  did it as a personal challenge–to push myself out of my comfort zone in the sports arena. Whatever the reason, I ended up snapping a few dozen shots. I played around with angles, settings, and editing to see how many ways I could transform the image. Below are three photos of the same bouquet, visualized in three very different ways. Perhaps I’ll print them and hang them on my wall.
