Getty photographers’ work at winter olympics

Getty Images is one of the biggest sports photography agencies and the main agency responsible for documenting the olympics.

The most complete Olympic collection

Shooting winter olympics is a tough job

I only follow the events of the winter olympics from home but I don’t envy those colleagues who work on site in Sochi. Well, of course I envy their photos, but the tiring hard work and lots of challenges they face there is something I’m not envy for. My blog surely would stop if I would be shooting there. 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.
