20-years after having photographed the iconic “Dream Team” make history in Barcelona at the 1992 Olympic Games, San Marino resident Andrew D. Bernstein will photograph the first USA Men’s Basketball team to return to Barcelona, at the 2012 Olympic training camp, where a compelling lineup of USA Olympic Basketball players including Kobe Bryant, LeBron James, and Chris Paul compete on the USA Men’s National Team led by “Coach K.”
The 2012 Olympics Training Camp will be in Barcelona from July 20-25. Bernstein just completed documenting the team’s training camp in Las Vegas from July 5-12, which included a tune up game against the Dominican Republic.
“The USA Basketball training camps are like nothing else,” says Bernstein, a 30-year veteran to professional sports photography, “From Bird, Magic and Jordan in '92, to Kobe and LeBron and all the players of today, you get to see the absolute best-of-the-best prepare to represent our country with great pride.”
Having visually documented the 1992, 1996, 2000, 2004 and 2008 United States Olympic basketball teams, Bernstein will capture the energy and passion that makes the USA Basketball program unique with coverage of the training camps.
