Crystal Visions Enrichment Program

Celebrity Guest Speaker

Neil Leifer (New York, NY) 
Neil Leifer became a professional photographer while still in his teens. Beginning in 1960 as a freelancer, his pictures began regularly appearing in every major national magazine, including the Saturday Evening Post, Look, LIFE, Newsweek, Time and, most often, Sports Illustrated. In August 1972, Leifer became a staff photographer for Sports Illustrated, leaving them in 1978 to become a staff photographer for Time. In 1988 he was made a contributing photographer at LIFE and spent the next two years working for both Time and LIFE magazines. By the time he left Time, Inc. in 1990, his photographs had appeared on more than 200 Sports Illustrated, Time, and People covers – then the most covers ever published by one photographer in Time, Inc. history. 

Leifer has published 16 books, 9 of which are collections of his sports photographs. His two most recent books, Ballet in the Dirt and Guts and Glory, both published by TASCHEN, showcase the very best of his Major League Baseball and Professional Football
 photographs. In the fall of 2013, Sports Illustrated will publish a memoir of Neil Leifer’s remarkable career. Leifer has traveled all over the world on sports assignments. 

He has photographed 16 Olympic Games (7 Winter and 9 Summer), 4 Soccer World Cups, 15 Kentucky Derbies, countless World Series games, the first 10 Super Bowls, and every important heavyweight title fight since Floyd Patterson beat Ingemar Johansson to regain the title in 1960. He has photographed his favorite subject, Muhammad Ali, on almost 60 different occasions – at fights and more than 30 photo sessions. While Neil Leifer now devotes almost 100% of his time to producing and directing films, there is a very good chance that you'll spot him, camera in hand, at any big championship fight. "Boxing is the one sport I still love shooting."
