JERKIN'

My full-time job is the achievement coordinator at a public charter high school in St. Paul. A month ago, I decided to create a magazine with the students. This would create opportunities to know the students, mentor a few and create an excellent representation of the school.

Today, I took a few students out on a shoot. They are in the magazine because of their crew (Illusionari Ent). The four boys in the pictures are part of the Jerkin movement--a style of dance out of California. 
The shoot only lasted 15 minutes, but we got some cool shots in. 
It was kind of a nice break from fashion photography. Jumping, dancing and all that is fun to shoot. 
Maybe I should go after bands for more photography opportunities. This would also be a great way to get Brown Folk in the music scene door.
