I’ve only been to two P-R-O Conventions, but one thing is quite obvious to me…and that is that the squads have carved out their territory on the dance floor because the Texans, Colts and Washington Redskins Cheerleaders were in the front, in the same spot as last year. That’s cools…makes it easy for me to shoot them. And I did take quite a lot of photos of these squads. And one cheerleaders that I took a fair amount of photographs was Washington Redskins Cheerleader Toccara. I photographed her last year and one thing I remembered was that she was keenly aware when the camera was on her and delivered compelling looks. You know, that’s one of the qualities of the best cheerleaders…when the camera is on them, they turn it on. Even in a dance convention, while learning a routine, Toccara plays to the camera. If you are a cheerleader, always play to the camera. So for that reason, Toccara is a 2011 P-R-O Convention All Star.
