Boston Celtics Basketball Portrait Shoot Follow-up

Sports Photography BostonThis is a follow-up to my 11/15/10 post Boston Celtics Basketball Portrait Shoot. The job was to photograph Nate Robinson of the Boston Celtics slam dunking a football for the Sporting News magazine. The story was about athletes who excel in two sports. Nate being a former University of Washington defensive back.

We arrived at the Celtics training facility in Waltham at 11am as we were told that the shoot will happen sometime after noon. We set-up lights on stands in a hallway off the practice court and waited. At about 3pm we were told it was time to move. We weaved through all the players still on the court and set-up. 10 minutes later Nate arrives and gives me fifteen minutes of portraits and slam dunks. It was a nail biter but a lot of fun at the same time!

Sports Portrait PhotographyWhile we were waiting I took a stroll around the facility and noticed a semi truck in the parking lot without a trailer on it. Upon closer inspection I realized it is Shaquille O’Neal’s ride. The Shaqliner!

    I just checked out your blog, and I love your work. I am a ‘newer’ local photographer, and enjoy looking at other photographer’s work. I envy the fact you got to shoot the Celtics players. I hope to someday be able to get enough experience to move to the level.

    Thanks for posting your work. It’s truly great, and I enjoy looking at it.

    Thanks again!
