Photographer Ryan Taylor recently worked with Red Bull to shoot a highlight story on Hilary Knight, one of Red Bull’s professional athletes and member of US Olympic Hockey team. With Knight going to the winter Olympics this February it was the perfect opportunity to showcase her journey to Gold.
Back in June 2017, I received an email from Taylor who I had met at a workshop the previous year. He was going to be in Boston for an assignment and was looking for assistants, a makeup artist, and a gear rental house. I quickly sent him back some recommendations but I knew Taylor's work and he had done some pretty impressive sports projects so I offered my services. He emailed back “we are shooting Olympic athlete Hilary Knight at the Bruins training ice rink for Red Bull.” Awesome. I had already started writing this article in my head.
