Love working with the Nike Team and the project for the Kobe IX launch was no exception. Amazing space to shoot, world class athlete and incredible gentleman. We had about five minutes and we made some pictures. Below is one of my favorites.Kobe Bryant

I joined the Nike team out in Los Angeles last week for the launch of the Kobe 8 system. To represent the new shoe and Kobe’s speed, the space for the event had been designed with hundreds of paper airplanes suspended and each creation had the branding of the new Kobe sneaker. It was spectacular! It is always such an honor and pleasure to work with the people at Nike because they dont bother to do anything unless it is PERFECT. It makes me show up with my A+ Game and while I work my ass off, I know everyone else is right there with me – Kobe included.  Kobe was a pleasure to photograph as he always is even though he was a bit under the weather. He even made a point to stick around to look at the final shots with this one being one of his favorites from the day.kobe portrait
