This Wednesday I had the once in a lifetime opportunity to shoot court-side at the Staples Center for the Clippers/Timberwolves game. It was amazing, fun, and a little terrifying. At one point, the Clipper’s star player, Blake Griffin, almost fell right on top of me.
I had this great opportunity through the action sports class I am taking this session. I went with classmates and we all got to meet the director of photography for the NBA along with a number of other very important sports photojournalists. We also got a behind the scenes tour of the Staples Center, which was extremely cool. If I got the chance I would do it again in a heartbeat.
There were so many amazing shots it was almost impossible to narrow it down to these. If you click on the images it will make them larger.
I have a shoot with one of my very best friends tomorrow, which should be a lot of fun! Look out for those shots in the next couple days.
