MARCUS SMITH PHOTOGRAPHS NBA PLAYER JASON PRESTON FOR AT&T
Marcus photographed NBA Clippers point guard Jason Preston for AT&T's "Connecting Changes Everything" campaign. Shooting alongside the motion campaign, he captured portraits, action shots, and cinematic still lifes on the court.
Jason lost his mom at the age of 16 but saw his life completely turned around thanks to a viral basketball video. "Jason has one of the most amazing and inspiring stories I've ever heard on his way to the NBA," says Marcus. "It reminded me of my own journey to becoming a photographer. Nothing was given, everything was earned and he never gave up. I'm happy to have helped with telling a small piece of his story."
