Last Summer, S.I. called me up and asked me to go down to Richmond to shoot portraits of former NBA player Johnny Newman for a “where are they now?” feature. I found Johnny to be both exceptionally tall (kind of a given, no?) and exceptionally kind and generous with his time. There were some cool shadows on his home court that I wanted to play around with and he was game for anything. Lindsey is even shorter than I am, but she still managed to be a huge help The whole shoot reminded me of that age-old question: how many toddlers do you think you could take in a fight? Scale-wise, we were like toddlers to Johnny’s regular height. You know what’s actually pretty difficult? Throwing a basketball high in the air from hand to hand while looking at a camera. This is a sweet ride. I want white leather seats with black piping in my car. Might look a little absurd in a Hyundai Sonata, but I’m willing to take that risk. Home studio! Laying down some tracks.
