“For a photo to be effective, it has to be affective. A picture has to move you in some way. It must evoke a visceral reaction in the viewer – crying, laughing, thinking.”

Colton will discuss the growing impact of sports photography on journalism and will offer a multimedia presentation featuring scenes and stories from the 2012 Summer Olympics. He will share his experiences and advice with photojournalism students and faculty.
