Ep: 49 NFL Photographer Shawn Hubbard

If you’ve seen an iconic photo of a Baltimore Raven, it’s probably the work of Shawn Hubbard.

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.
