MYLES LOFTIN ON PHOTOGRAPHING MEGAN RAPINOE AND HER COLLECTION FOR NIKE
“Megan was awesome to work with,” says Myles of the soccer star. “She was really open to trying fun poses. We got along really well, and she definitely trusted my direction. Before I photographed her, I showed her some shots that we tried out on my iPhone just to give her a sense of what we were looking for. She's really into style and fashion, so it was cool to see her and the stylist chat about her favorite pieces, and how she pairs them with Nike.”
On a separate day, Myles photographed models wearing the collection at a house in Malibu.
“It was such a great shoot day,” he recalls. “The talent were really easy to get along with—we were listening to music and cracking jokes all day. For the creative, Nike pulled a lot of references from my previous personal work, which was great because I just got to shoot how I naturally would. It definitely played a part in the set design and the overall vibe of the shoot. I'm really happy with the images we made that day.”
