Here are some portrait's I shot on media day of the Portland Trail Blazers. The scenario is this: We set up our lights where the media relations staff tells us to. Then we wait for a player to show up, they stand on our mark, we tell them what kind of pose to do, we snap a dozen or so frames and they step out to the next station. The players generally hate doing this. Most of them are good sports and put a little energy into it. That makes it fun, but if they put out the vibe they don't want to be there, it's awkward and embarrassing. I just want it to end as quickly as possible. Here are a few images from the day:
