#YoureMyBoyLew

February 11, 2015

We have been the Colorado Rockies team photographers from the beginning of the franchise and have photographed many Fantasy Camps. For those that don’t know what Fantasy Camp is, allow us to explain. For five days, Rockies fans get treated like professional ball players at the Rockies spring training facility in Scottsdale, AZ. They get equipped with the latest Rockies apparel, uniforms, and equipment and get to use major league facilities.
This year was a special year because an 88-year-old camper named Lew Dunlap graced the fields of Salt River Fields. Here are a few pictures that attempt to capture his love for the game. Thank you Lew!

Here is also the video that got Lew some national attention for his passionate playing!

Nat Geo photogs give insight from Rich Clarkson

April 9, 2012

 

Gerd Ludwig continues his series on speaking to former Directors of Photography including Rich Clarkson. Clarkson was Director of Photography for the National Geographic Magazine from 1985 to 1988.

Like Kent Kobersteen, I have spent much of my professional life moving on from an early role as staff photographer to a director of photography. My time spanned two successful newspapers and eventually, the National Geographic Society.

It included working as a contract photographer for a news weekly and the nation’s premier sports magazine, as well as the editor of a number of books and photographic projects. So from both sides of the fence, my career has been about the business of getting good pictures and then using them well.

So what did I learn in these various stages? And what should all photographers know?

This is about what directors of photography do, and how to use them well.

First, a director of photography is your friend — and your spokesman, your salesman and often, your mentor. But he is a middleman. His job lies between you, and the users of your work, along with a picture editor and various other layers of editors whose job it is to combine the visuals with words. It is a very competitive environment.

Some managing editors are brilliant manipulators of all the elements to tell a story most effectively, but often they can use help. Dealing with various magazine editors over the years, often a scene of negotiations and compromises.

The Photo Society is a collaboration blog of National Geographic photographers, their work, and their opinions.

As the Colorado Rockies season meets its halfway point the light starts to bend and shape just about everything within the gates. Below is a sampling of the light from photographer Jamie Schwaberow during his coverage of the Rockies vs. Red Sox series a couple of weeks ago. Stay tuned because the light is always changing.
