One of the freshest faces on the 2016 Charger Girls was a beauty named Madison, who was a great addition to the squad. She had everything that I liked about the Charger Girls, photographically speaking…a pretty smile, looked great in the uniform and photogenic while dancing. Girls like her made my job easier with respect to getting a great, compelling photograph for my articles and it was a joy photographing Madison and the rest of the 2016 squad.

FOR MORE INFORMATION:
2015 was a great year. There were so many hot squads and hot cheerleaders at the 2015 PRO Convention in Atlanta, the premiere professional cheerleading and dance convention in the business, that I was in awe. The PRO Convention is an amazing event to cover because it allows me the opportunity to get some truly amazing photographs and every year, I try to up my game and exceed my limitations…photographically speaking.
Anyways, back to Sam and the Charlotte Honey Bees. I have said many times in the past that the Charlotte Honey Bees are the hottest dance team in all of professional sports…bar none. And in 2015, every Honey Bee in attendance was drop dead gorgeous and I truly regretted being unable to photograph all of them in a one on one setting…there simply wasn’t enough time to do so.
It’s March and it is officially audition season, so I thought it might be a good thing to post a photo from last year’s Charger Girl auditions. The Charger Girls auditions have historically attracted hundreds of girls to tryouts and the competition is fierce for the 28 spots on the roster. There is no shortage of beautiful and talented girls who tryout because as we all know, Southern California is a hot bed for dance talent.
The Los Angeles Rams are hosting cheerleader auditions for the 2018 season starting Sunday, March 11. Los Angeles Rams Cheerleaders not only perform at home games at the LA Memorial Coliseum and at Estadio Azteca in Mexico City, but also participate in public appearances, events and community service across the Los Angeles region, nationally and internationally throughout the year.
Candidates looking to audition must be 18 or older by Thursday, March 1, and must register online by Thursday, March 8. Walk-up registration is not available. Coverage from last year’s preliminary auditions can be viewed at therams.com/cheer/videos.
In addition, the Los Angeles Rams Cheerleaders are hosting four voluntary workshops prior to auditions at 24 Hour Fitness locations throughout the LA region. Each workshop includes one hour of dance led by Choreographer JOHN PETERS, followed by a presentation and a Q & A segment with the Rams Cheerleading Director KEELY FIMBRES. Workshops cost $40.00 per person and have limited availability. Footage from last year’s workshops can be viewed here. Interested candidates may sign up for workshops at therams.com/cheerleaders/workshops.
Candidates May Register at therams.com/2018cheerauditions through March 8
One of my favorite Charger Girls to shoot in 2015 was a CG named Allie. She was one of several former University of Arizona Pom Squad dancers and I enjoyed her presence on the sidelines. She had a great smile and a joyful personality while performing.
So let us enjoy this Flashback Friday with 2015 Charger Girl Allie.
One of my all time favorite Charger Girls to photograph was a girl named Summer and who happens to be the subject of this week’s Flashback Friday featurette.
Summer, like all of my favorites, is beautiful and photogenic and most importantly photogenic and beautiful while dancing…something that is less common than you would think. You can’t see it in this image, but she has these beautiful blue eyes that contrasted sharply with her dark hair and that made for quite a striking combination, photographically speaking.
So, let us enjoy this look back to the year 2004…wow, it’s been that long!
