San Francisco-based photographer Alexis Cuarezma was asked to shoot the US Men’s National Soccer Team for Sports Illustrated. The catch? He had only one minute with each player, and in that time he wanted to get not one but four different shots of each player. Impossible, you say? Nope. This is how he pulled it off.
To complicate things further, the shoot was a three-part assignment.
The first part was the one already mentioned – the one where Alexis wanted to get four different shots of each of all 23 players in the US Men’s National Soccer Team.
The second part required Alexis to shoot a portrait of Clint Dimpsey AKA Captain American for the magazine cover.
The third part was a group portrait of all the German players that plays for team USA.
To complicate things even further, the shoot took place in the middle of nowhere on asphalt where there was no shade and no mains outlets.
So how did Alexis do it?
