Had a shoot with the OMBAC Rugby team today. Now, as skinny as I am, I usually feel pretty fit around most folk on the street. I used to work out a lot, and I played a lot of sports back in the day. So on a normal day, I'm pretty confident.
To say the least, these are not just your normal folk on the street. The guys on OMBAC as some big S.O.B's. As I scouted the location during their practice, the play came in our direction and I could have sworn I wet my pants a little.
Anyway, the shoot itself was hugely successful. We shot a few team photos along with some of the girls from the Tilted Kilt (sponsors of the team), some headshots, and a few action shots. While the guys are rather intimidating in stature, they are a great group and are hilarious hang with. At one point, I was on one of their players shoulders in an attempt to get a good angle on an action shot.
OMBAC is headed to Pittsburgh this weekend for Nationals, so be sure to give them support.
