I made a return trip to Suwanee Sports Academy to create some “staged” images for their media and marketing efforts. Doing staged shots is not as easy as it looks. Individuals are asked to “freeze” their actions while you adjust all the elements in the shot. The idea is to create a near perfect image. […]

Street ball players are offensively minded. So, it’s not surprising that I get asked one question on a weekly basis: “How come you don’t have any pictures of me shooting the ball?” There are numerous factors, but probably the most important is the way a player shoots the ball.
