Thanks so much for all your assistance to the WNBA during the Dream's visit to Manchester. Thanks, too, for sharing the photos with wnba.com and with the Atlanta Dream in a very, very timely manner. It was greatly appreciated.

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. I understand that is a fully and stressed job to be in a Final Four working for Euroleague, but the result was really amazing. I received a feed back from Website staff with a good evaluation of your job, it is a high helpful for our job. In other side I seem very good images, specially of celebration moments.
Sinead Gordon - GB Head of Basketball Operations
I wanted to take the opportunity to thank you for all you help and fantastic photographs throughout the International season you were an absolute pleasure to work with and a professional in every way and I feel we really achieved on getting the fans “closer to the action” via the great photographs you produced of our various teams so once again thank you for your unfaltering commitment to GB Basketball – it is very much appreciated and my apologies if we don’t say that often enough.
Simon Hosannah - Funkytown
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.
Ryne Nelson - SLAM
Incredibly ambitious, very well executed. Couldn't have asked for anything more... including the patience on your front. Mansoor, you pics were fantastic -- the Amaechi image is on the article's first page, complete with credit.
Liam Wordsworth - Basketball England
Thanks for all your help this season. We’ve been thrilled with your work and it has been a pleasure working with you.
