Tomorrow is the first day of EuroBasket 2013 - this has been what the past months have been building up for!
This summer has seen me travel with various National basketball teams around Europe, and the map has been dotted with places like Pitesti in Romania, Albena in Bulgaria, Helsinki in Finland, Pau in France, Zaragoza in Spain, Vilnius in Lithuania....
It has all been with teams preparing for this autumn's EuroBasket - there have been some good games, there have been some poor games where the two teams looked to be from different planets in terms of quality on the court.
For myself, it has been yet another summer when I have been privileged to learn the fine art of photographing basketball - and tomorrow is when the REAL DEAL starts for myself.. as well as the teams. When the ball rises at 2.30pm local time in Koper in the game between Finland and Turkey..
Image-wise, there have been many great captures during these games.. some rare moments that I had thought never to see certain player perform.
Now, after two days in Koper, Slovenia - shooting practise sessions, media meets.. it's GAME TIME!
