PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympic and Paralympic Games

The Work

I was contracted to work as a Deputy Photo Manager during both Games for the Photo Team, which was part of the larger Media Relations team for the PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympic and Paralympic Games in South Korea. Working with the Photo Chief and the Photo Manager at my designated sports venue, I prepared and executed photographer positions. I provided general media support to the accredited photographers and non-rights holding broadcasters at sports venues, and explained and enforced media rules at the daily press briefings at the Media Centre. I was also responsible for training, mentoring, and managing volunteer photo assistants to support the photographers who came to cover the Games.

Results & Impact

  • Enabled world-class accredited photographers to shoot and publish memorable of photos of both Games in a wide variety of international media
  • Ensured the smooth operation of photography procedures according to Olympic regulations, taking into consideration country-specific and international culture.
  • Successfully trained and managed a team of 16 photo assistants that claimed ours to be the best!
