We had the privilege of photographing stills of the Lakers and the Magic for ABC/ESPN's coverage of the NBA Finals. We met both teams in Los Angeles and photographed the top 7 players from each team with the Larry O'Brien trophy. We had a great time capturing their emotions as they saw the trophy for the first time before the series began. It was also a pleasure working with Valerie from ESPN and being a part of such a creative team. Thank you to Rick Chapman, once again, for leading the crew and to everyone involved with this creative project. We had a blast.
Congratulations to the Lakers!
Here are some of the stills and video from our journey:
Here are a few outtakes from our time with the trophy:
