Photographer Jeff Cable has posted an interesting behind-the-scenes look at the crazy deadlines that are faced by photographers at the Olympics. “Wow - how things have changed in just a few years! As you all probably guessed, all of us Olympic photographers have short deadlines. When I first shot the Olympics, my contract allowed me 12 hours to go through the photos and get them back to the team. When I photographed the Summer Olympics in London, my deadline was shortened to 2 hours. That means that I would have to go through thousands of photos, pick the best, edit them and submit them to the team within a couple of hours.”
