Earlier this year a friend had showed me the #hypecourts Instagram account and said I should start shooting aerials of basketball courts. I liked the idea but I didn't even know where to start. First of all I haven't played basketball since probably high school gym class So it's not something i keep an eye out for. About a week later we're in L.A. walking back to the car when I spotted this colorful little court in the alley designed by Dom Gallery. It was one of those moments where I had to tell myself don't be lazy and just go get the shot otherwise I'll regret it. I quickly snapped a couple overheads of the court and we left. It wasn't till later when I started editing the photos when I realized that I was hooked. I loved The unique perspective and symmetry of the court. Now every trip I go on I make sure to get at least one court shot in. Here's some of my favorite shots!

 Google maps has been a really good tool for me to use to find these spots. I've had a lot of people ask me for photo locations in the past. So I've decided to make a map of all the places I've photographed over the years to help others with their travel photography. I'll be adding photos and locations to this map on a regular basis. Stay tuned!
