Photographing the FIBA World Cup Qualifiers Basketball

July 08, 2022

June finished and July started with an exciting assignment for the Melbourne Sports Photography team - covering the FIBA World Cup Qualifiers at John Cain Arena. The tournament featured teams from Australia, China, Chinese Taipei, and Japan.

The Australian Boomers were naturally popular with the home crowd and performed well across the series. They were undefeated.

The game is the same, but the photography challenge is quite different, and we have enjoyed it all!

Many people have commented that they like the images from the FIBA World Cup Qualifier tournament. Thank you for the support!
