The king of NBA sneaker pictures is in Brooklyn


Look out on the floor in the hours before any Nets home game and you’ll see one familiar face — or, at least, the camera shrouding it, usually pointed at the players’ feet.

Professional photographer Gemini Keez has become a staple of Barclays Center’s pre-game shoots, focusing specifically on the latest sneakers NBA players wear, which has helped him build relationships throughout the league. He’s taken hundreds, perhaps thousands of photos of NBA players and their shoes.

YES Network caught up with Keez before the Brooklyn Nets played the Dallas Mavericks Monday and talked to him about his profession, his stories with NBA players, and his long-term goals. Check it out.
