This is a short article about my photo from the 2006 Final Four and how it got published…
During the championship game, I took a sequence of photos of Aboya jamming a monster dunk over Florida’s Noah. It was featured in a popular UCLA blog.
Shortly after this, UCLA Athletics contacted me and wanted to buy the photo for their Men’s Basketball Media Guide. This is a thorough guide for press/analysts that covers everything about the team, program, and history (also a great guide for fans).
The media guide was published in November 2006. My photo appears on page 10, 174, and back cover. The back cover is in color and has a photo credit (“Photo (C) Donald C. Lee”).
Here’s some of the pics from the media guide (click to enlarge/reduce pics):
The color photo on the back cover is not viewable online. Only in the hardcopy edition.
The media guide is online in PDF format on the UCLA Athletics website.
