Grover of PhotoShelter hosts a video interview with Sports Illustrated’s DOP for their regular “What photo buyers want” feature.
Steve Fine, the legendary Director of Photography at Sports Illustrated, doesn’t waste time sugar-coating things – he has an opinion and he knows what he wants. Having been at SI for over fifteen years, Steve has amassed a lot of entertaining stories that he shares with us in this interview, as well as a ton of incredible sports photography and insights into what photo buyers want.
• How SI “builds” photographs to captivate their audience
• Why Steve looks for important subtleties in SI’s photos
• What SI expects from its staff and freelance photographers
Steve is a straight-shooter and his presentations are not for the faint of heart. When asked what photographers can do to make photo editors’ lives easier, he responded…. Well, we’ll let you listen for yourself.
