Chesley Roberts|Summer Intern

I have had more than one intern bail on a tough assignment. So when I offered our current intern the opportunity to help me out with a Preview cover shoot, I wondered if the desire the learn or the snooze button would win the fight.

But sure enough Chesley Roberts, a student at Western Kentucky and a Shreveport native, showed up right on time at 6:45 a.m. in the Willis-Knighton parking lot. It's always good to have an extra set of [dry] hands when you are shooting the cover of the weekly entertainment magazine... underwater.

After making sure I had what I needed, I got out of the pool, handed the camera and underwater housing to Chesley and told her to get in and shoot. After laughing at me for trying to stay on the bottom with no weight belt earlier, she got her own opportunity to give it a try and found out it wasn't so easy. But after a bit she got it down and made a couple nice images.

Although we haven't finished shooting... here are some of my photos of local Triathlete Joe Hinton.

And a couple by Chesley as well.

looks like the intern gave you some serious competition...I like that last shot the best.
