I have yet to learn the art of playing it cool.
To be honest, I totally geek out when I get a chance to photograph a celebrity - especially pro athletes. I hold it together in front of them, but after it's over - I just can't believe it.
I am a huge sports fan. But its mostly because I have NO talent for sports. I made that observation when I was 16. I was the third-string, junior-varsity back-up, to the back-up wide out.
Basically I saw... ahem "playing" time at practice when we were running drills on no pad days.
On the above link are some celebrities that my staff and I have photographed. Please feel free to browse the pictures and read the stories that go along with them.
