9:02 am
event right behind this community center nearby the cow palace. the bill there formally introducing today if passed would ban gun shows at the cow palace starting in 2020, organizers of the crossroads of the west gun show that happens five times a year at the cow palace, they have a contract to continue the event through 2019. the most recent gun show was last month and back and a small group of students and gun- control advocates held a two day demonstration to express concerns over there gun violence. community members and local leaders have also voiced their opposition to gun shows at the cow palace for years but it is not within local control. the cow palace is over -- operated by the state. previous bills to ban gun shows were introduced and failed years ago when arnold's fortune eger was governor, he vetoed a bill to ban gun shows and more
9:03 am

a lot of moments and we are lucky enough to have andrew with us in studio. welcome. what did you think? >> it was definitely a blowout, really tough to watch for houston. >> from your perspective during a blowout does that make it more difficult or is it easier? >> well, in your arena a blowout is just as good as a one point wind -- win because the crowd gets into it. the crescendo grew as the game progressed and i love to see the reaction of players and fans but it is a little less stressful than a last-second shot. >> you have been doing this for a while it. you have been to a lot of arenas. i want to put up a picture from a little while ago where chris mullins is being guarded by dell curry. on the left you can see that. you have been doing this for a
9:43 am
while. what can you tell me about how the game has changed since you started until now. >> if you look at the picture you can see the game has changed because the shorts are longer. that was the short short days. i love that picture because it brings me back full circle. you can see steph curry out there with his dad. >> chris was in the house last night sitting in the stands as fans so that is why i brought that up. so you use nice equipment but what about the average person who wants to take good pictures they can show people? do you have any tips for someone who might want to start?>> sure, the introductory kits the beginner who wants to take a step up from a basic camera phone, they are really good. they will do video, they will do still shots and they come with lenses and flash. now is

9:46 am
the bulls, the lakers, the celtics, is it more of the same? >> i don't think they are ruining it, i think everybody is jealous of them especially because they are so good but we saw a great finals the last three or four years so is lebron james ruining the game? no he is just good and the warriors are good, the lakers showtime teams were great, the great spurs teams, the rockets, the pistons, the bulls with michael jordan. so i think it is another era of a great team. i don't like the term superteam because every team that aspires to be great you know steve kerr and all of those guys have put together an amazing team. >> is there a perfect picture?>> well, it has to be in focus. i have taken a lot of great pictures that won't see the light of day but the perfect
9:47 am
picture will elicit a response from the viewer. when you look at the picture you will say it was a great moment but i like to get the emotions on the court as well. the warriors are great at that, steph curry had some last night and draymond green too. so if you as the viewer are looking at the photo and you get a response that i have done my job.>> is there one moment that you missed? >> how much time do you got? >> i was expecting one or two.>> you know, i am unfortunately subject to getting blocked by referees or missing guys because of arms or you are out of focus. it is what it is, it happens quickly and i get one shot every four seconds unlike photographers with a motor drive
