Getty Olympic Photos are Shot, Edited, and Shared in 120 Seconds

  1. Ah yes Getty putting independent stock freelancers out of work and increasing there monopoly on photojournalism yet again. They already killed the entertainment stock industry in Hollywood, why not sports too.

  2. Not really hard with that big team they got…and all cameras shooting over network cables which transfer all shoot to the onsite server where 20 editors get it ready for upload

  3. Tethering with LR and applying preset corrections on import, my photos are shot, edited, and ready for client review in about 3 seconds. I can even have them transmitted to LR mobile on import for remote review.

  4. But you have to add a long delay before the next batch of photos can be taken. Because while they are editing and sharing the current batch, all of their gear is stolen. Then they have to return to Getty Central to pick up replacement gear… lol

  5. All those commentors being ‘meh – no big deal’ – stfu and stop pretending it’s not impressive. It’s no good saying stupid things like ‘with the size of the team they’ve got…’ blah blah blah. Each image is taken by one photographer – sent to one selector, then one editor, then one captioner. Four people. Not a huge team. Just a team of four. Meaning three for processing averaging 40 seconds each to ensure the images are good enough, correctly cropped, balanced, captioned – and sent out for the whole world to see. Unlike your works which might only be seen by a few clients, with the majority never seeing the light of day.

    Don’t pretend you’re some kind of speed masters with amazing abilities that work better than this. You’re not. So give it a rest with your ridiculous, childish comments. The bravado is embarrassing to read.

  6. So churning out mass quantities of photos instead of high quality images seems to be the theme here. You need time to at least evaluate whats worth posting. Flood the viewers with tons of mediocre imagery is not responsible to the profession/the photographer or the end viewers!
