Capturing The 2014 World Cup: A Photographer’s Guide
Words and Photography by Ryu Voelkel
It’s been a while. So forgive me. Por favor. And this is a long one so I suggest you make some tea or coffee before digging in.
I thought I would talk about my experience as a professional freelance photographer shooting the World Cup. Not the ones who work for an agency or a newspaper. Basically, a backpacker’s guide to shooting the World Cup. Beleza.
First of all, I was there to shoot as many matches as possible. I estimated 21 and fell 1 short and ended up with 20. Why? I got killed by the fog in Curitiba which grounded my plane until the match in Belo Horizonte started.
