Life of a Hustler: A Look Inside WNY Athletic Culture
Photography by Jessica Brant
What qualities make an athlete great?
What demands are made on the body?
What are athletes thinking the moment before they take that shot?
What happens in the aftermath of a loss?
How far must athletes go for their careers?
These are all questions that sports photojournalists must ask themselves after leaving a venue to begin the grueling work of post-processing. The nature of our jobs is, for the most part, solitary and time-consuming, but normally, there is very little time to think during the heat of play. That’s why we’ve adopted a hustler mentality. Similar to the athletes out on the field, photographers on the sidelines are caught in the throes of their labor. Inside this hectic space, we are confronted with decisions to either sacrifice convention for freedom, or formality for condition. This quick decision-making distinguishes a compelling and enduring photographic story from an uninspired one.
