Sports: Gary Dineen has been photographing basketball since the 8th grade, when he did a series of self-portraits dunking on a toy hoop hung over his bedroom door. Since then, the level of competition of his subjects has increased and, over a 30 year career, he has photographed hundreds of high school and college games and nearly 2,000 NBA/WNBA games. For the past 20 years, Dineen has been a contract photographer for the NBA - acting as the Milwaukee Bucks team photographer, regularly covering the Chicago Bulls, and photographing other games and events in 19 of the 29 current NBA arenas. NBA highlights include photographing Michael Jordan's last Championship Series in Chicago, Reggie Miller's final regular season game in Indianapolis, the Golden State Warriors Team on the Great Wall of China, and the last twelve All-Star weekends.
Entertainment: Gary has been the house photographer for the BMO Harris Bradley Center from 1999 to present. Covering concerts and events, his subjects have included many of the world's top musical acts as well as WWE, UFC, and the Harlem Globetrotters. Prior to that, he spent several summers in the late 1980's as one of the official Summerfest photographers, covering the "Big Gig" along with many of Milwaukee World Festivals' cultural events.
Publications: Gary's work has appeared in Sports Illustrated, Time, Rolling Stone, ESPN Magazine, the NY Times, the LA Times, USA Today, Inside Stuff, Inside Sports, SLAM Magazine, SPORT, Basketball Digest, HOOP, Billboard, Pro Wrestling Illustrated, American Photo, Shutterbug, and others. His action portrait of New York Knick Latrell Sprewell was selected as one of the best basketball photos of all time, appearing in the book - Basketball’s Greatest Shots.
