I got a call from German newsweekly Der Spiegel a few weeks ago to head out and photograph Stefan Ustorf, a German, former US hockey player. He currently plays on a team in Berlin, but due to the head trauma that comes with years of playing hockey, might not be able to play any longer without suffering permanent damage. He's currently trying to get regulations changed.
They wanted a sensitive portrait- obviously I didn't make the peak action image up top, but was able to come away with something that fit the bill in the short period of time I spent with Stefan.
