Photographing a Legend

A couple of weeks ago, I had a chance to photograph NBA legend Lenny Wilkens, needless to say I was ecstatic at the opportunity. Just a day before the shoot, Lenny was honored with the 1992 Olympic “Dream Team” being inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame for the THIRD TIME! Since there is nobody else on the planet with three Hall of Fame rings, we wanted this to be a prominent part of the shoot. I had several poses that I wanted to try out that would show of the rings as well as Lenny and overall, I was very happy with the results. I can’t thank my friend Patrick enough for helping me out with the lighting and setup as well as bouncing ideas off of. Check out the sample of images below that highlight a few of my favorites.
