Real Basketball Mentors Making Time!

What an amazing surprise for the girls at David Johnson Basketball Camp. Natalie Achonwa is arguably one of the best women’s basketball players EVER. A seasoned veteran on the international circuit. Natalie is Canada’s youngest Senior Basketball team member at the age of 16. She is a 2012 London Olympian, FIBA World Championship Competitor and repetitive Final Four NCAA Contender. Achonwa is the first international player to suit up for Notre Dame in the program's 36-year history-Read More about Natalie Achonwa-University of Notre Dame [Here]

The Hamilton girls were preparing for fall tryouts at David Johnson’s elite basketball girls camp, when Natalie walks in. In awe of the hometown St. Mary's Catholic Secondary School Graduate, the girls gathered in close to take in every word. Natalie explained the discipline and hard work it takes to get a scholarship to university.

DJ’s daughter, Little Ms. Jayda made the trip from North Carolina. She stole the hearts of all the Canadian basketballers. Jayda is a big fan of Natalie’s and caught a few games with her family leading up to the NCAA women’s basketball championships last year. Natalie took some time out of her busy schedule to take some playful snaps with all her fans.

Actually Natalie is so easy going, she stood with each girl from the camp for a photograph opportunity [More Photographs].  It means the world to these girls to meet a basketball mentor like Natalie Achonwa. A heartfelt thank you goes out to Natalie as she signs a few autographs for her adoring fans.

Slam Dunks to Dunkaroos

In honor of the Ganon Baker 2013 Hamilton Camp starting this week, I think it is appropriate to show off some Slam Dunks to Dunkaroos! I am a huge fan of Dr. J (Julius Winfield Erving II) and I want to be entertained! Dunking a basketball is exciting and basketball players are getting more and more creative. Many people are not blessed with the ability to jump over 6' & only dream of dunking like a pro. Visualization is half the battle, so as a photographer I can make real time images. With the aid of technology & specific equipment, I am able to shoot different angles, be creative with my athletes developing their mental image to peak performance realty!

DJ-Once and a while you get an athlete who gives you everything you ask for in a shot.  DJ started out doing dunks for me and some exceptional portraits came into the mix. It's amazing how the available light in the gymnasium really make a photo pop. Then again I love to post process a composite and get artistic! [More]
