Sports and event photographer Jeff Cable has shot every Olympics since 2008, and we are excited to announce that he’ll be sharing behind the scenes photos from the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janiero on his blog. The Zenfolio Ambassador recently stopped by and told us about his exhilarating summer plans.
What are you most looking forward to on your upcoming trip to Rio for the Olympics?
I get excited about every Olympics, but this one has a little more excitement than most. There has been a ton of press (mostly bad) about Rio, which makes me even more anxious to get down there and see it for myself. But, I most look forward to capturing really great photos to share with the team, my followers and to add to my portfolio.
Which event are you most excited about photographing while you are in Rio?
I will be the official photographer for USA Water Polo (both men and women) and hope that I can photograph gold medal matches for both teams. Along with that, I look forward to pushing the limits and capturing photos of as many sports as possible that are both artistic and unique. That is not easy to do when you are shooting with 2200 other photographers!
How do you use Zenfolio while you are traveling and photographing at the Olympics?
I love that I can easily add photos to my Zenfolio website from anywhere in the world. When I photographed the Winter Olympics in Sochi in 2014, I was adding new photos to my homepage and Olympic gallery almost every day. Even though I will be working 18-hour days, the process is simple enough for me to execute within minutes. And the galleries always look awesome, which makes me look good.
Be sure to follow Jeff’s blog, where he’ll be sharing inspiring shots from this year’s Olympics. We’re excited to see his photos!
