Thanks Tom, his shoes actually kill me in this shot. His agent told him to bring shorts and a jersey but apparently forgot to mention to also bring the proper footwear for the concept.

I was trying not to mention them since this is a non-critique section. :D

I did notice that they did not quite fit the shot/setting. I did kinda suspect that it was one of those beyond your control things. Your level of attention to detail is too great for me to assume otherwise. :)

I read the comments about the shoes before I saw the photo. Made me laugh out loud when I saw them. I'm still smiling. Also, wondering if you managed to keep your cool and a straight face. My guess is that you did some creative cropping for the client, located some suitable shoes, or rescheduled the shoot. BTW, he looks more like a football player to me.

Nope the guys agent was like it don't matter about the shoes just shoot it so we shot it. Interestingly enough the guy is 7' tall and is a former Pro Basketball player (Europe) and knew one of his character shots was to be as a player thus the jersey and shorts but ahhh only loafers for the feet. I don't know about Europe but I assume they don't wear leather loafers on the court there either :)

Nice work Bobby.
Not much chance of boredom sitting in at work for you. Definitely a wide range of subjects for you to shoot!

Boredom is a feeling I rarely experience

Sorry for the delay in posting and for my general absence around the forum, I have been buried in corporate work for the past month and it seems my every minute at the computer has been spent retouching
