Topps Digital is a division of The Topps Company working on digital products and apps. Topps KICK is the only real-world, real-time football trading card app. as the live action unfolds in every Barclays Premier League, UEFA Champions League, UEFA Europa League, and Major League Soccer match players on KICK can earn points and rewards for playing the game. This app brings card trading into the digital realm with thousands of rare digital cards.
As a contract photographer with Topps I photographed the 2016 Major League Soccer season in Dallas. I was asked to intimate shots of players, shots you wouldn't normally get from USA Today or Getty. I shot over 10,000 photos for multiple digital trading card sets that are traded between millions of users on the Topps Kick app. My final project with Topps was an entire set of cards based on my photography titled "On The Sidelines" for the intimate qualities of the photographs. The set was a fan favorite and loved by upper management.
