Focusing more on product photography and look-book quality pictures, I took one of my friends, Kieon, and we took some fun pictures in different Under Armour gear
I‘ve had some ideas I’m working on for the summer and Nick Young has agreed to let me film him to start off with! Very excited. I met up with him as he landed at LAX. Stay tuned for some cool footage coming soon…
Last weekend Chris Brown made a surprise appearance at the JBL. This week he came once again to play with Moneygang.
One of my dreams was to be a photographer in the NBA. I was given this opportunity by Fox Sports. I not only was documenting the experience of being at a LA Clippers home game, but Fox was also going to document my experience of shooting my first game. I had the most amazing time! I got to Staples Center a few hours before tip-off to make myself familiar with the venue and everything going on. Sitting on the floor under the basket was a surreal experience. Getting to look out at and see thousands of people was amazing. After my nerves calmed down, I felt right at place and in my element of shooting a basketball game. With the help of my friend DeAndre Jordan, I was able to capture one of the coolest pictures I’ve taken of him, Blake and Ronny on the bench. After the game I talked with DeAndre and Blake about my first time shooting a game and they were very supportive and took pictures to be apart of it as well! I look forward to being apart of more NBA events, it was great!
The summer basketball circuit has started up. Pro-Am league, The JBL, is a popular spot for players to get ready for everything coming over the summer. One of the main people that has made a presence in Los Angeles basketball is rapper The Game with his team, MoneyGang. This week he brought Chris Brown to play alongside him. This was un announced and the gym was practically empty, but it was a fun game to watch.
Basketball season has action taking place all over the world. One of the less watched leagues is the NBA Development league. There’s some great talent in this league, so I checked out a D-Fenders game to watch Zack Andrews and Mike Taylor.
It’s that time of year again – March Madness! The Honda Center in Anaheim hosts the 2013 Men’s Basketball Big West tournament! The defending champions, Long Beach State, were looking to go all the way this year – especially with NBA prospect, James Ennis. They were eliminated in the Semi-Finals by UC Irvine. Irvine played Pacific in the final game of the tournament, with Pacific getting the final Win. Congrats to Pacific!
The Milwuakee Bucks were in town playing the LA Clippers. A few months ago I painted Brandon Jennings a birthday gift – a portrait of him. It was also a fun time at the game – including one of the biggest plays of the season – a lob from Jamal Crawford to Blake Griffin dunk!
I took my photography skills to create look-book images for “Renowned Clothing”. Modeling the looks was actress Paige Hurd
