I play tackle football because…

This year’s portrait project with the Calgary Rage Women’s Tackle Football team is a lot different then I have done in the past. This year, I wanted to capture this women a little more natural and realistic to how they look after they play. These photos were all shot right after their rainy home opener win over the Edmonton Storm on the May long weekend. When I say right after, I mean, still in their gear, sweaty and not made up. Many still had helmet hair, impressions of the helmet on their foreheads and swollen hands from making big plays. Each one of the these women exude an impressive level of confidence and it really shows through their photos. Each player was also asked to include the reason why they play tackle football.
