When you get to work with great people, it makes your life easy. Being able to photograph Barack Obama for an HBO show Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel was no exception. In all the years that I have been working behind the camera, the only person to ever walk into a room and introduce himself and shake every single person's hand in the room was our 44th President of the United States. Now, this is something in itself, but more importantly was the fact that he could also drive to the basket.
After the shoot and interview had been over, we got to cover Barack Obama playing basketball with some pretty good basketball players, and he stood up well. Now, this is the kind of day that will always stay in mind as special.
