If you’re a sports photographer in the United States, the Super Bowl is undoubtedly the ultimate event. The Super Bowl is widely considered the mecca of sports photography, because of its sheer scale, magnitude, and fan following. A photographer would be incredibly lucky to get just one opportunity to actually shoot the big game. But there are four photographers who have been fortunate enough to photograph every Super Bowl in history:

To celebrate this fantastic streak in sports photography, ESPN Films and Original Content roped in celebrated sports photographer Neil Leifer to make a short film about them. In the words of VP and Executive Producer Connor Schell of ESPN, “There couldn’t be a better choice.”
It’s an amazing journey, not only for these four very lucky photographers, but for the millions of football fans that they have enthralled over the years with their photography.
Unfortunately, the full documentary film, Keepers of the Streak, has already aired, so we’ll have to wait for reruns or hope that it will be available to stream soon. Did you catch it on ESPN?
