Want to know what it's like to shoot the Olympic Games? In a fascinating blog post, photographer Jeff Cable says it takes a crazy mix of speed and urgency:
When I first shot the Olympics, my contract allowed me 12 hours to go through the photos and get them back to the team. When I photographed the Summer Olympics in London, my deadline was shortened to two hours. ... Now, they want me posting images at each break. When the buzzer sounds at the end of the first period of hockey, I have 14 minutes to download my photos (I shoot full RAW), go through them, edit, resize them and upload to Team USA. And I need to do this so that I am ready to start shooting again at the start of the next period.
