COVER SHOOT

BE­HIND THE SCENES:

Sport Diver - Inside: Sport Diver - - PRESSREADER INSIDE - Pho­tog­ra­phy by Mark Evans

with MARK EVANS, the Ed­i­tor of Sport Diver

The ever cru­cial cover photo. The face of ev­ery mag­a­zine, it is there to rep­re­sent the pub­li­ca­tion at its finest. Most mag­a­zines opt for a stan­dard mod­elled pho­to­shoot, but it’s never that easy for Sport Diver mag­a­zine. Imag­ine hunt­ing for that pic­ture-per­fect frame un­der twenty me­ters of ocean, shoot­ing elu­sive fast-mov­ing sea crea­tures while in full scuba gear. Those are the kind of chal­lenges that Ed­i­tor, Mark Evans, faces to get the per­fect cover photo shot. In this is­sue of In­side with Sport Diver, we talk to Mark about what goes into choos­ing a front cover im­age, and dis­cover how shoot­ing them can be a frus­trat­ing busi­ness.
