CONGRATS TO THE LOS ANGELES LAKERS on another NBA CHAMPIONSHIP! This photo took a lot of sweat and effort to get. Instead of going to the LA Coliseum, I decided to jump into the sea of fans and get shots along the parade route. Tens of thousands of fans lined the streets and I had to join into the group of sprinting fans and run down alleys and side streets to get 4 or 5 different opportunities to photograph the Lakers. I just happened to get back to the floats as Kobe Bryant and his family, along with Los Angeles Mayor Villaraigosa rode by. Kobe flashed a big 4 for the number of his titles and there you have the photo.

“My name is JB Brookman. I’m a rock star concert photographer who grew up shooting the biggest stars in the world. The stages and venues of Hollywood and LA used to be my home, but now I have made a home in the suburbs of Nashville and Franklin, Tennessee. Shooting Taylor Swift, U2, Elton John and Ed Sheeran is great, but my true passion is creating highly stylized, authentic and modern portraits of High School Seniors, making them feel like they are at the center of the stage.”
