Torn backgrounds, bad lighting, and being ripped by his peers, were the story for photographer Joe Klamar. As we explained in the story here, Joe published some pics for Getty images of the US Olympic athletes, that had every pro photographer from New York to L.A. flinging harsh comments and criticism.
But now it is time to let poor joe tell his side of the story. The following was copied directly from the AFP website and blog....
Now that we have the full story, I really feel bad for him. He was unprepared, and his peers raked him over the coals. He did what he could with what he had. The same as any of us would have done. We can't find fault with Joe for doing exactly what you would have done in the same situation.
Joe, on behalf of all my peers, I apologize.
