Photo Brigade Podcast #26 with Steve Boyle
By Robert Caplin
Currently residing on the East Coast, Steve Boyle travels the country to create compelling imagery for advertising and editorial clients. When working with athletes he strives to capture their physicality, intensity, and inherent competitiveness. Steve attended the University of Missouri and received a degree in photojournalism. Before beginning his freelancing career, he spent a year as an assistant & lighting tech for Sports Illustrated and briefly held a desk job as a photo editor at a fitness magazine. His favorite pastime is sitting around a campfire and devouring a bag of peanut M&Ms.
On this episode I chat with Steve Boyle who’s a really great sports photographer and portraitist based in Philadelphia. He’s worked his way into the world of freelance sports photography by paying his dues assisting some stellar sports photographers and sitting behind the editing desk. Now with clients ranging from Runners World, ESPN The Magazine, and Gatorade, Steve’s shooting what he loves and making a living doing it. As always we talk about business, promotion, and much more. So sit back, relax, and enjoy this episode of The Photo Brigade Podcast.
