Oyster Fashion: Amelia Zadro & Dut Yaak Shot by Jason Henley

Ball so hard.

The week before I shot this story I did a pre-shoot to try to find a backdrop for a 90s-inspired basketball shoot. I found this amazing location — the sun was shining and there wasn't a cloud in the sky or a single person on the court the whole time I was there. Fast forward a week, and it was a re-enactment of White Men Can't Jump.

In between avoiding basketballs hitting everyone and everything, working with an overcast day when we had planned for a sunny shoot and flashes not firing, we managed to have a rad day in the company of some great people and some not-so-great ballers.
 
I guess in White Men Can't Jump Rosie Perez was right: "Sometimes when you win, you really lose, and sometimes when you lose, you really win, and sometimes when you win or lose, you actually tie, and sometimes when you tie, you actually win or lose."
