UB photographer uses ‘multiple’ approach to show athletics in new light
January 12, 2021


“When I saw that the wrestling team competed on a mat with a very large UB Bulls spirit mark, I knew I had to get this shot directly from above,” Levere says. But it wasn’t easy. It required the coordination and approval of various individuals in order to mount the camera under the scoreboard in Alumni Arena and control it wirelessly. Due to the timing of the matches, the camera had to be in position about 40 minutes before the matches started. The remote system had to stay up until the last match was completed over an hour and a half later. The camera was mounted with a 16mm fisheye lens, with Levere correcting for distortion from the lens in post-production.
