Joe Delegrave, Paralympic Rugby Player for New Mobility

I’ve gotten to know Joe Delagrave in the course of photographing wheelchair rugby.  He is currently co-captain of Team USA and plays on the Phoenix Heat.   Joe is also employed and has a family.  The combination makes him a rare figure in the PwD world and as such, a good story.

One thing I really enjoy is when an editor says they’re looking for 1 or 2 photos and they end up using (anf paying me for)twice as many.

If you get a chance, read the story. Its good. Its written by Chris Carr, who was an intern for me at ABIL/SpoFit a few years ago. I really think he nails this story on many levels.
