"I am entirely me." —Amelia Gapin
When DOROTHY BEAL entered our Skechers GOrun Cover Model Contest six months prior, she didn’t think she had a chance of becoming a finalist. But thanks to thousands of votes from our readers, Dorothy is now a star. On a steamy Saturday in New York City, the Women’s Running team welcomed our winner to the set of her first-ever photo shoot!
Photographer James Weber shot Dorothy is his personal studio (jamesweberstudio.com). To get the lighting just right, he set up folded foam core, then he instructed Dorothy to run toward the camera. “This is harder than it looks,” Dorothy laughed, as she tried to smile wide, run forward, look at the camera and keep her arms steady all at the same time.
