For several years I’ve had the opportunity to photograph some of the top high school athletes in the nation in various sports. It’s always cool when an athlete I’ve photographed makes that next step and is able to pursue their dream of making a living doing the sport that they love. Congratulations to Dansby Swanson on being selected as the #1 overall pick by the Arizona Diamondbacks in the 2015 MLB draft! I photographed Dansby on assignment a fews years ago when he was a senior at Marietta High School. He was great to work with and couldn’t have been nicer or more appreciative. Definitely deserving!
