Levine, who had been the primary photographer for Blue White Illustrated for more than a quarter of a century, brings a wealth of experience, talent and creativity to our operation. He had previously shot occasional events for FOS on a freelance basis.
But, starting with Friday's Lift For Life Challenge at Holuba Hall, he will now serve as our lead photographer for Penn State football and men's basketball.
At FightOnState.com and Fight On State The Magazine, we take photography very seriously. The Scout.com network has honored us for Best In-House Photography and photos we've commissioned have been used in a variety of publications, including ESPN The Magazine.
All of that has been due to the great work of a team of talented freelancers, including Joe Rokita, Mark Selders, Steve Manuel and, at times, Levine. We intend to maintain our relationships with all of these outstanding photographers. In fact, Selders just handled a cover photo shoot for us last week (we will reveal the cover in question Monday).
But Levine will be a constant during football season.
To get a feel for his work, please check out the link below for our first photo gallery from Penn State Uplifting Athlete's 2008 Lift For Life Challenge.
And stay tuned for Part 2, which will feature images of a host of Nittany Lion freshmen.
