Corky Trewin, Seattle Seahawks Team Photographer

Insight into the Life of a Professional Sports Photographer

by Amy Sorokas /

Managing massive volume comes to mind when Corky Trewin starts talking about just how many frames get fired off on the sidelines of a typical Seattle Seahawks game. He says typically it is about 100 to 200 frames per point scored. The math starts to make my head spin.

 

Recently, we got to chat with Corky and learn a bit about how he got started as a photographer, what inspires him and what are some of his favorite images. You can read the full article here. And like many photographers we get to talk to, Corky is always looking to the future.

 

When asked about his personal favorite over his many years as the Seahawks photographer, Corky says, “My favorite photo is the one I'm about to take. I never feel like my best work is behind me because every photo I take informs the next photo I'm about to take. It's a learning process.”

Thanks to Corky for the time and sharing stories about what (I’m guessing) many photography enthusiasts think is one of the coolest jobs out there. I sure do!
