With Kevin Love

Here are some outtakes from my ongoing assignment with the TeachersCount’s ad campaign, “Behind Every Famous Person is a Fabulous Teacher.”  This time we photographed Minnesota Timberwolves forward-center Kevin Love with his high school math teacher, Scott Buchanan.  We shot on location at the NBA headquarters in NYC, and as you can see we didn’t have much room to work with.  A 6-foot-10 basketball player can easily make a room look very small.


Now that it’s March Madness I thought I would share some images from a long-term project of mine.   Watching the games being played in huge arenas often has me wondering where many of the players got their start.  Not all of them are from a large city, but I bet many are.  Inner city basketball courts a not known to be in the best condition or even in the most ideal locations.  But since the sport is so popular with many kids and adults, and space is at a premium, courts will be set up anywhere there is space.  Usually not in the best locations, but good enough for a game of basketball.  Here are a few examples of “arenas” I recently photographed.
