The Beginning of a Life Long Journey - Rebecca Lynn Photos
Four of Four

It all started October 2012 when I had the opportunity to work with the San Antonio Spurs photographer. In the beginning, I just set up cameras, did minor edits, handed the photographer the cameras throughout the games, and communicate with the NBAE in New Jersey throughout the games. The same time I got the job, I began my academic career at the Art Institute of San Antonio working towards my Bachelor Degree of Fine Arts in Photography. I felt I started getting double the education because I was working first hand in the field I want to work in once I graduate. Within the first month of work, I met photographers from all around San Antonio as well as the State of Texas and even other states. One photographer I met was the San Antonio Rampage (AHL) photographer, another worked at a news station who also photographed the San Antonio Missions (Baseball). After a few months of working with the Spurs photographer and meeting many other photographers, I had the opportunity to photograph a San Antonio Rampage game. After the 2012 season of the San Antonio Spurs, I was given the opportunity to photograph the San Antonio Stars (WNBA) season. A few of my photos were published on the WNBA website for the games. I never thought just one year into my photography school that I would be provided with all these opportunities. The Spurs photographer appreciated all my hard work in my first season that he asked me to return for the 2013-2014 season. During the season, I was able to meet more photographers from other teams. After the Spurs won the 2014 Championship, I had the opportunity to meet many NBA analyses, talk with many of the NBAE members. I had the opportunity to photograph the Stars season again with an online blog site, Starshoops.net. During the Spurs media day in September 2014, I asked the photographer if there was any chance I would be able to photograph any games this season. On October 1, 2014, I had the opportunity to photograph the San Antonio Spurs Open Scrimmage Practice. Most recently I got the okay to sign a contract with the NBA and start photographing a few Spurs home games to use in my portfolio as well as be used by the NBA. I am looking forward to a great season with endless possibilities and many more opportunities to becoming a great sports photographer.
