I was hired as the photographer for the first ever “Run For Your Lives Zombie 5K” race, which was held in Darlington, Maryland last Saturday. This was just the first of a series of several to occur throughout the country this year and next, so I was absolutely surprised to see that this drew attention from national media outlets, as well as over 10,000 runners and volunteers dressed like zombies. Here is the link to the website I shot for, which gives a better explanation of what the race is all about. 

As a Goucher graduate, I’ve taken pictures of zombies plenty of times, but even after shooting this event, I still don’t understand the obsession people have with the concept of zombies chasing humans. It just doesn’t get me going whatsoever, but it does make for very entertaining, compelling pictures.

I shot a ton of pictures. I guess that will happen when you’re running around in the woods and trodding through mud up to your ankles while taking pictures of the same thing over and over again for 14 hours straight…

Regardless, I’m really happy with my pictures from the day, which will make good additions to the portfolio. This is a sample of some of my favorites.
