Next up I had to find a place to scan my stuff. I knew prices had come down since I last had slides scanned, but of course I don’t trust just anyone with my originals and I don’t want to send my stuff out of the country. Luckily through my friends at PhotoShelter I found the fabulous Julie Morris, who is the president of FotoBridge in New Jersey. These people would be an ideal place for me and many other friends to work with if they did a good job. I called Julie and immediately knew that she “got it” and understood the industry and what people like me needed. She told me they had scanned 250,000 slides for NHL Images, scanned 40,000 slides and negatives for the Kansas City Chiefs, and 25,000 slides and negatives for the Minnesota Vikings, to name just a few of their big sports clients. I told her I needed pro scans at 4,000 DPI to give me 50 megabyte TIFF files and she told me they would cost under a dollar apiece. I could not believe it! I decided to give them a try and see what happened. Two weeks later and I could not be happier with the scans I got back from FotoBridge.

Freelance sports photographer Brad Mangin has many claims to fame: one, according to him, is being the last photographer on earth to get an iPhone. While that claim may be hard to prove, another will be substantiated when Instant Baseball is published this April. The book chronicles the 2012 Major League Baseball season with images shot on Mangin’s iPhone and posted to the image sharing Web site Instagram. It may be the first non-self published book comprised entirely of Instagram images shot on an iPhone.

The big news was leaked on Mashable last night that Sports Illustrated is publishing 18 of my baseball iPhone Instagrams spread out over three Leading Off double trucks (6 pages) in the magazine this week. This is an exciting development for a project that I started in February on the first day of spring training when I was on assignment for the magazine.
As this decade ends, I wanted to commemorate its passing by collecting images from these special people that have helped me over the years. I asked them to select an image of theirs that is historic, unique, revealing or memorable. Most of all, I wanted the image to be something personal … an image special to them.
I am a freelance sports photographer based in the San Francisco Bay Area where I regularly shoot assignments for Sports Illustrated and Major League Baseball Photos. My work keeps me busy from the first pitch of Spring Training to the final out of the World Series. When not shooting, I enjoy attending San Francisco Giants games in my season ticket box seats and working on SportsShooter.com, the online resource for sports photography, of which I am a founding owner.
The email arrived on December 21, 2007. Subject: “Invitation to judge POYi.” The words that followed stunned me: “Greetings from Pictures of the Year International. My name is Rick Shaw and I am the director for the international photojournalism program. It is my privilege to invite you to participate on the judging panel for the 65th annual Pictures of the Year International competition (Newspaper and General Divisions).”
Holy cow. Was he serious? I immediately called Rick and told him I would be honored to judge POYi. I would not be going to spring training to cover the Cactus League till the end of February, so this fit perfectly into my schedule. I knew this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity would help me learn a lot and grow as a photographer. Having the chance to look at thousands of photographs over a six-day period with a panel of three other judges was a chance I wanted to take advantage of.
