Hello sports fans! In honor of the opening week of baseball season, we’re sharing a profile of legendary sports photographer Ronald C. Modra. Ron could easily could rest on his laurels with impressive resume…
70 cover shots for Sports Illustrated and 23 years shooting for that publication.
Author and photographer of the critically acclaimed book: Reflections of the Game: Lives in Baseball (Willow Creek Press).
And a contributing photographer for Time, Newsweek, National Geographic and New York Magazine.
Next up for him: a book coming out this spring about 40 years shooting for Major League Baseball (with a forward by MLB Commissioner Bud Selig).
Ron’s love of the outdoors and saltwater fishing in his home state of Florida keeps him busy with a rod and a camera. We recently caught up with Ron and asked a few questions about the art of sports photography, his next projects and the lure (pun not intended…really!) of saltwater fishing.
Enjoy this exclusive profile of a very cool photographer!
