LA Times Photographer Mark Boster photographes USA Olympic Hopeful Kyla Ross

June 1st, 2012

Part of my job at the Los Angeles Times gives me the opportunity to work with some of the photographers on their daily assignments. Today I went with photographer Mark Boster while he photographed 15 year-old olympic gymnast Kyla Ross. (At qualifications she made the USA all-around gymnastics  team for London 2012). The gym she trains in, while functional was a little cluttered and less than glamorous. I had a great time working with Mark to turn the space into a portrait studio of sorts and he was able to create some very nice images.
