Someone smart once said that if you can shoot sports, you can shoot anything. True enough, but yeah, not for everyone. I do happen to think that sports shooters have some of the hardest photo work out there, and that basketball has always been one of the hardest sports I've ever had to cover.
I was asked to shoot the Algonquin Thunder's practice last week, focusing specifically on two top players, as seen together in the photo below. Here's the story. As of 12:25 p.m. today, no photo was posted with it online (I'm told it ran in the print edition).
Good luck to both, and the entire team, in Lethbridge at the OCAA championships.
