Fightball is an intense one-on-one basketball competition held in a club setting. It pits some of the world’s best ballers against each other. This spring I shot the Fightball final in NYC. An intense game between Andrew “Spongebob’ Washington and Brazil’s Leandro de Lima. Sitting with my toes touching the side line behind the basket trying to follow the players with my lens and avoid getting hit by the ball made the game extra thrilling.
I had photographed the players earlier in the day at practise, ‘Spongebob’ seemed to have a fierce light in his eye – and he came out on top that evening wnning the grand prize of $100,000.
