With Superbowl LVI fast approaching, it seems like a good time to showcase a recent American Football themed shoot featuring Tegan.
The idea for this theme had been bubbling away behind the scenes for quite a while, so it was great to finally get together and bring it to life.

Here’s a look at one of the finished images.

I know what you’re going to say.
She’s wearing a Texas A&M jersey and holding a Cleveland Browns helmet!

There have been heated discussions about this in Facebook groups.

She should never have an orange helmet because A&M’s fierce rival Texas Longhorns play in that colour.
Well, what can I say?
Art is subjective!
It’s just a bit of fun!
American Football gear is not that readily available here in the UK!
It’s not a Longhorns helmet!


I borrowed the helmet from my friend who works for Aston Villa FC. He was given it by a former club owner, who also used to own the Cleveland Browns. By a strange twist of fate, I also used to look after said owner’s private jet when he flew into Birmingham to watch the Villa.

Three point lighting was used. Strip-boxes either side and behind, with a large octa-box boomed directly overhead.

Here’s a behind the scenes shot.

Hopefully this illustrates how little space you need to create high quality imagery.

This set featured in the December edition of Femme Rebelle Magazine.

That’s the end of regulation for today.

Hope this gets you in the mood for the Superbowl. Will you be watching?
