Have you ever wondered how a sports photographer covers an assignment for Sports Illustrated? Brad will show his work from ballparks all over the country that has evolved over the years. He has shot everything on deadline from black and white film with a manual-focus camera in the 1980's to an iPhone in 2012. As the times have changed Brad has tried to adapt and keep things fresh as he photographs 100 baseball games a year. Brad will talk about what makes a great sports picture and tell you what editors and clients are looking for in a sports photograph.
