    I would like give to you my thank you very much for all your job. Our coverage was a great job and we worked as a good team.

    Having been lucky enough to have been the subject of some of Mansoor’s work over the past few years, I can confidently say that he is not only one of the greatest sports photographers in the country, but in the entire industry. What sets him apart from the others is that he not only captures the action, but the passion, emotion and enjoyment of the event. Added to that, he’s a really nice guy!

    Ronald McIntosh - BBC

    Wow! Once again, thanks a million for these, Mansoor. Fantastic shots. I really do appreciate you taking time out of your non-stop schedule to hook these up, my man. Here's wishing you continued success with your fantastic photography. Your creative documentation of the game is invaluable.
