Sports photographer Ron Wyatt will present the next in Williston Northampton School’s ongoing lecture series on Thursday, April 11, at 6:30 p.m. in the Dodge Room, Reed Campus Center. The event is free and open to the public.
Mr. Wyatt was assigned by Kodak to photograph the Summer Olympic Games in Athens in 2004 and Beijing in 2008, and is a self-taught photographer. In his presentation, Mr. Wyatt will talk about his experiences covering the Olympic Games, as well as finding the right equipment and camera set-up, planning a shooting strategy, and the importance of knowing the game.
As Mr. Wyatt notes on his website, his “first experience with photography was an unsuccessful photo documentation of my honeymoon.” Since then, Mr. Wyatt has covered the NBA, NFL and Major League Baseball, among others. His photos have appeared in various publications such as USA Today, Black Enterprise Magazine, Time Magazine, Newsweek, TV Guide, and ESPN. He currently covers corporate assignments for companies that include Six Flags, Eastman Kodak, Continental Airlines, CVS, Pepsico, and Verizon.
