FOTOfusion Awards Dinner

 FOTOmentor Award

Walter Iooss is perhaps the single most successful sports photographer for over 50 years. His photographs have graced the cover of Sports Illustrated over 300 times. A Swimsuit Issue cover shooter for last 30+ years, and he is one of only four photographers to have covered every Super Bowl. He has produced award winning advertising campaigns for some of the biggest brands, ranging from Coca-Cola, Adidas, Nike, Oakley, Canon, Kellogg’s and Gatorade to the National Milk Council. Iooss has also published 13 books including The New York Times 1993 bestseller Rare Air: Michael on Michael as well as other titles like Cal On Cal and Junior. The athletes he chooses are self-made, he says, not the product of hype or conceit, and their strength of character shows. He was able to draw out their individuality and capture them on film. Walter says it best: “Photography is not a job. It’s a way of life. I live it, think it, and feel it. It’s just in my DNA!”
