If you happen to follow sports photography, there's a good chance that you may have come across the work of Gemini Keez. He's known for capturing fleeting moments on the courts and fields, but the area where the New York-based photographer really shines is the footwear.

"My focus is the shoes, what the pros wear," Keez recently told YES Network. In fact, he's so good at what he does that LeBron James once asked security to remove every member of the media except Keez from his space.

"[They were] pretty much suffocating him, and he was telling the security guys, 'Get these guys out of the way, except for him, I know what he does,'" Keez said. "But it was just LeBron and I... LeBron doesn't just talk to anybody. He ignores me, but he also knows what I'm doing, and he gives me the OK."

It doesn't get much better than an endorsement from King James himself. Check out Gemini Keez's YES Network profile below.
