Workin’ It: Hat Hair
Kevin Cox is a photographer on the Sponsors team, shooting corporate assignments for the IOC’s top sponsors. He has been with Getty Images for almost three years and this is his first Olympic Games. He enjoys working as a Sponsor Photographer because “it is fun to be behind-the-scenes, to be able to meet the athletes and their families, and to talk to them about their lives.” During Kevin’s first day while on assignment, American Skeleton racer Noelle Pikus–Pace gave Kevin the hat pictured above, which she designs and sells online (http://www.snowfirehats.com/cart.html). Kevin is now often seen sporting this hat in the Vancouver office and during the events he covers. One of his favorite moments so far during the Games was meeting the mother of US Olympic Snowboarder, Seth Wescott, while on assignment. The very next day, he was shooting the Snowboarder Cross event when Seth won gold. Having that opportunity to meet his family made covering Wescott’s win a lot more special.
Kevin loves working for Getty Images and says that the best part of working for the company is that, “Getty Images cares about their employees. Even though we don’t always work in the same office, we all get along with each other and work well together. We are, in many ways, a family.”
