There were booths set up for sport memorabilia collectors, autographs, and key speaker series where fans could listen to their idols speak candidly about their career. This is where I got to spread my wings a bit and take photos of people actually speaking and not performing music which was not my normal experience when it comes to live event photography. I attached a slide show with some of my favorite pics which include images of such sports icons as Corey and Leon Spinks, Aneis Williams, Tony LaRusso, and Jackie Joyner-Kersee. You really have to get someone at the right moment when they are speaking to get a good likeness of them and I played with some angles in how I was positioning the speakers as well as how I was holding my camera. It was a good exercise and gave me some additional experience to add to my tool shed because one should never stop learning when it comes to an art they are passionate about.
