Double take

November 11, 2016

Had a really fun shoot the other day for The Wall Street Journal’s “What’s In Your Bag?” feature. Basically they pick out interesting people/professions and do a story and photos about what they do and what’s in their bag. Anyway, I got to photograph Oklahoma State University’s mascot Pistol Pete. The first thing I found out is that there are two Pistol Petes. Apparently they do a ton of functions during the year and because students are the mascots, they just don’t have time for one person to do the job. They do loads of weddings (who knew?), parties and other functions. “Who’s that cowboy with the giant head in the groom’s section? Rawr.”

Austin and Taylor were both very gracious and amenable and we had a lot of fun. The Journal ran a bunch of photos online which was pretty cool, and here is a selection of a few. Enjoy and thanks!Oklahoma State University mascot Pistol Pete
