Comments on: Center Court – A 30 year wait http://blogs.reuters.com/photographers-blog/2010/07/01/center-court-a-30-year-wait/ What makes a great picture?

Getting your dreams come true is certainly worth the extra mile to try to squeeze in from editing to the actual shoot. I hope I get to share a similar story sometime around 2040.

To answer both of your comments, yes I traveled to London from the U.S. with my camera’s but since my assignment and job function here is editing and not shooting pictures, there was little reason to have them at the club. It was only after I arrived at Wimbledon Wednesday morning that the encouragement came and I received the permission needed to shoot the match. Here you receive a credential to do one or the other job. I hope you understand editing Wimbledon is as gratifying an experience as photographing the event is. Now, the reason I had to wait so long is we have very talented photographers working in the UK who first and foremost deserve the honor of shooting this tournament so it was only going to happen when the timing was right. See how important patience is.

I read about this man who has photographed many important sport events and yet he has to borrow cameras to take photographs? Why does he not arrive at this assignment with his cameras? Perhaps this is why it has taken 30 years! A photojournalist carries his cameras with him everywhere, non? I do love the story though – and interesting is the repeated mention of backgrounds – so, very important. Please, next time, bring your own cameras and maybe you will not have to wait another 30 years.

I shoot sports and also has big dreams of making the major league sports that exist, such as Grand Slam Tennis, Major Golf and many others, but as I’m from Brazil I think I’ll have to wait much longer !!!!!
