ADMIRAL FARRAGUT INTERNATIONAL BOARDING SCHOOL
Admiral Farragut Academy, a prestigious military boarding school with a Navy ROTC program, is just a few miles away on the waters of Boca Ciega Bay in St. Petersburg, Florida. Collaborating with Alison Lescarbeau, advancement director at AF, and graphic designer Jess Van Curen was a true pleasure as they welcomed my insight while working on location. They had identified specific themes and programs to feature in the 2013 viewbook and they recognized their need for vibrant imagery that showed student life amidst the school's historic centerpiece Farragut Hall.
A key component of the shoot was a photograph to advertise Admiral Farragut's varsity atheletics programs. The one hour window for this shot occurred in the midst of a jam-packed day filled with documenting classes and student life. The arrangement and layout of the students coupled with their stern looks proved critical to the execution of the photograph.
Below are a few standout images from the visual branding update for Admiral Farragut. Their new viewbook for the upper division appears in an interactive online magazine.
