There were speculations, but it wasn’t official yet. Now an announcement confirmed it: only a few journalists and photographerrs can work at the Formula-1 restart this year.
Werk photo from the bathroom after a rainy match. This is how the gear of AFP photographer in Budapest Attila Kisbenedek is being dried after geetting soaked. He is currently covering the FIFA World Cup. Other than his official poctures published by the agency on his Instagram feed he lets a peek into his bathroom.
Getty Images is one of the biggest sports photography agencies and the main agency responsible for documenting the olympics. Like many other agencies they cover the games with dozens of photographers and a load of remote controlled cameras as well whenever it is possible to flood images all the time during the games.
This news is about a few days olt, but I had to include it on my blog. On the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, Swiss skier Lara Gut fell and crashed into photographers shooting the event from the side of the race track.
I still had no chance to go through, cull and (properly) archive the photos of the Aquatics World Championships.

It already happened some times when I had a more intense work at hand.
Thankfully this is not the case with Jeff Cable who keeps posting from Sochi letting a snaek peek behind the scenes with it.
I already wrote about the work at the largest football event of the world. This time they talk in a video letting us a sneek peak…
Some of my readers asked me to write a behind the scenes post about photographing Formula1 at race track Hungaroring dolgozni.
