A few months ago, the popular photography website Phoblographer.com posted an interview with yours truly entitled, “Getting into the Action with Sports Photographer Michael Clark.” I was traveling non-stop for five weeks when this interview went live but here it is just in case you missed it. To read the entire interview head on over to the Phoblographer.com website.
This interview covers a variety of topics including: how I got started, how shooting adventure sports is different than shooting “normal” sports, how I prepare for shoots, my favorite sports to shoot, what gear I use and also how I work with video. The interview starts out with the following:
“In sports and action photography, it’s almost always the subject themselves – the athletes – that get all the glory. Rarely do the men behind lens, who in actuality get into the action themselves, get any recognition for the exhilerating shots they capture. So for this month, we here at the Phoblographer are seeking to give the floor to the sports photographers, without whom the best and greatest moments in sports would never be documented.
We recently chatted with sports photographer Michael Clark, whose work has been featured in several photography magazines including Outdoor Photographer and Digital Photo Pro, to get insights on what it’s like to be an adventure photographer.”
My thanks to Phoblographer and Michelle Rae Uy for the interview and for featuring me on the website.
