« Looking back at the Bon Jovi Tour The Joy of Renting »

Appearance on TWIT Photo

February 02, 2012 by David Bergman

I was honored this week to be the guest on TWIT Photo, hosted by famous tech geek Leo Laporte and photographer Catherine Hall.

Rockstars. Presidents. NFL. BIG event photographer David Bergman

The question on everyone’s mind must be: what hasn’t David Bergman done? With 11 covers for Sports Illustrated, including the coveted 2010 Super Bowl, and his distinction as official tour photographer for Bon Jovi, David gets a lot of game. He joins us live in the TWiT studio to discuss his now-famous GigaPan shot of Obama’s inauguration and shows viewers how he processes 600 frames of a GigaPan shot in a live software demo. Also, the music geek shares inside secrets on being a successful music tour photographer, and you won’t want to miss the moment he shocks Leo and Catherine with his gigantic, $10G+ bazooka 600mm F4 Nikon lens.

    thank you so much for putting the video up here to share it with all of us who weren’t able to see it life because of time zone differences or whatever. I really love to listen to you and learned a lot from this interview. You’re a really great artist and I love to see your pictures and love to learn a bit more from you in interviews like this. Photography is such a amazing art and a fantastic way to show emotions and yes, it’s a bit like magic because you magically make a memory with capturing a special moment of someones life in a picture. Your photos are always so full of life and you can feel the soul of the people you capture in it and also your dedication to your art and to the people you capture.
    I can’t wait for more from you and I hope I’ll learn lots more about photography from you from this site and blog.
    You really opened my heart and also my eyes to photography. Because of you I now look different at things and try to focus on how I could capture scenes on photos. So Thank you for sharing your passion with us here and showing us what you can do with a camera.
    You’re a real photo-wizard.
    Have an amazing time at the Superbowl and I keep the fingers crossed that you’ll get another Sports Illustrated Cover from that event. But I’m sure you’ll get it. I can’t wait to see your pictures of that event.
    Sending lots of love from Germany,
