Photographer Scott Halleran has worked for Getty Images for nine years and has covered four Olympics. This year, Scott is the photographer capturing the portraits of the athletes who visit NBC Today Show each morning at Grouse Mountain. Scott begins his commute every morning at 1:30am by driving through Stanley Park and over Lion’s Gate Bridge before riding a gondola to the top of the mountain. Despite the sometimes challenging hours, Scott loves being on the Getty Images team. “I take a lot of pride working with this group of talented and passionate photographers.” Because Scott has access to a car, he generously volunteers his free time by making retail ‘red mitten’ runs for the other members of the Getty Images team who are at their desks editing a constant stream of incoming imagery captured at all of the Olympic events. But for him, these mittens are not only trendy souvenirs, they are also inspiration. “After seeing Wayne Gretzky wearing the red mittens during the Opening Ceremony, I set out the next morning on a mission. I brought a pair of the red mittens with me to the Today Show’s portrait studio and although it was 3:30am, he agreed to do this shot (pictured above).” Scott has now purchased over 125 pairs of these coveted red mittens and has since been deemed the “Getty Mitten Merchant” by many.
