Knut Egil, sometimes sports photographer.

My career as a sports photographer has not yet rocketed. I like photographing sports though – when kept on a reasonable level. I realize that the Polaroid SX-70 might not be the ultimate sports camera. And I stlll struggle a bit with technical issues at times. I photographed Marius Helland from Isfjorden playing football with his friends in Oslo. He likes to play football in the park while smoking. I’m sorry that you can’t see the cigarette, but at least I captured the ball. Some sports photographers don’t think the ball is so important in football photography. I think the ball is very important.
