Outrage Over US Olympic Promo Shots - There's been a lot of debate lately on the quality of the US promo shots. Take a look here.
Many people have said that they don't look professional, and are shoddily taken. Take a look at them here. Bear in mind, though, that reports suggest that the photographer was on a very limited time scale and the shot was set up very quickly, with limited time for re-takes.
Photographer Joe Klamar has received a lot of criticism over them, but there is debate as to whether this is fair given the situation.
When you compare their images to the UK efforts here, there is a distinct difference in quality, but the UK ones were taken in a large studio with the help of some of the very best photographic talent.
