Basketball Passion - B. Varsylvia James

Basketball Passion

Many people dream of shooting a professional basketball game and getting that shot that everyone wants.  But, what about streetball or street basketball?

Recently, I had the opportunity to shoot a tournament between two street teams, "Get Right" and "Showstopper".

Looking at these teams play, the passion and intense desire to win is not different from a pro team.There is a respect and comradery with the players.  Ironically, one of the players on Get Right, used to play for the Showstoppers.

What makes these players so special?  These are men who work regular jobs have family, with the dream of being discovered by either a semi-pro or pro team.As a photographer, it was a privilege of being invited to capture and share these teams story.  Thank you Get Right and Showstoppers.
