The Sitka Sound Slayers are a rad group of gals (and a few guys) who have formed Sitka’s first roller derby league. I’ve had a ton of fun shooting their derby bouts and promotional materials. Check out my previous shoot for their inaugural bout. The Slayers’ tagline is “Derby by the Sea,” so I did my best to reflect that in our shoot. For this session, we chose two location. I had a vision of shooting the crew in front of the fishing boats at sunset. To make sure we would have something to use in case the sunset didn’t work out, we took a back-up round of shots in the gym. The purpose for this shoot was to get a background image for the poster advertising their upcoming bout and some photos of the refs (Zebra Squad) for recruitment materials. All in all, these are some of the most fun and my favorite portraits to date.
And here are some shots from their first bout.
