If you’ve seen an iconic photo of a Baltimore Raven, it’s probably the work of Shawn Hubbard. Hubbard talks about what it takes to shoot in a highly charged football environment and when not to snap a photo. Hubbard’s work is in the NFL Photography Hall of Fame. He shoots The Baltimore Ravens for the NFL, Under Armour, Red Bull, Green Bay Packers, NBC, Riddell, Big Ten Network, M&T Bank, CNN, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, SHAPE Magazine, and New York Magazine.
