Photographing the Olympics

Have a look at this video (via PetaPixel) giving a glimpse of what it’s like to be part of the Reuters team photographing the Olympics.

It’s fascinating to see the scale of operation, the number of staff involved and their vast amount of very expensive equipment.

But what comes across most, is the hard work and energy required of those involved, working to tight deadlines against fierce competition.

If you’re thinking of going to Rio next time and don’t want to carry all that equipment, you might want to see  Guardian photographer Dan Chung’s Blog about photographing the Olympics using a smartphone and some binoculars.  www.guardian.co.uk/sport/2012/jul/27/london-olympics-2012-smartphone
