Elma Track Champion

As a small-town photojournalist, a large amount of my time is spent covering local sports. Usually I'm shooting games and meets, but every so often we get to produce a feature on an excelling athlete. Take Ray Stark for example. Stark just became the third of his brothers to win a state title in the hurdles. I didn't have the ability to travel to the meet to get art of him actually winning the championship, but he was accommodating and worked with me to make a pictures of him in action as well as a handful of portraits.
