B-2 Flyover Photo Wins Second Prize

Posted on January 6, 2009

An Unexpected Surprise

A year after my B-2 Stealth Bomber flyover photo was printed as a two-page spread in Sports Illustrated (more on that here), I found out that Sports Illustrated had submitted my image to World Press Photo, that it had placed second in the Sports Singles Category and that I was invited to go to the World Press Photo ceremony in Amsterdam. I couldn't believe it! It was incredibly humbling to be in the same room as so many other photographers and photojournalists. My experience in Amsterdam really opened my eyes to photojournalism and forever changed how I see my aerial photography work.

Below are some photos from the World Press Photo Awards Ceremony and my World Press Photo interview.
