Tyler Campbell for Ebony Magazine

leave a comment »

I photographed Tyler Campbell, son of Heisman Trophy winner and NFL running back Earl Campbell, for the February issue of Ebony Magazine. Tyler was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in college, thus preventing him from entering the NFL draft and effectively ending his football career. Now he’s a spokesman for the MS Society and an overall a positive force. We had a great shoot in Zilker Park and a good time getting to know each other. Go pick up the issue with Samuel L Jackson on the cover.
