Photography by Adam Stoltman: Sports Photography, The Arts, Portraiture, Travel, Photojournalism and Fine Art

I am a media professional with over 30 years experience as a photographer and picture editor working on editorial, commercial and corporate assignments. My photographic work has appeared in The New York Times Magazine, TIME, Newsweek, LIFE, Sports Illustrated, New York Magazine and a host of other publications and books in the United States and internationally.

Currently, and over the last several years, I have been developing and packaging independent media projects including internet, streaming and rich media, film, publishing and exhibition projects. Somehow this has inspired me to return to my first love, photography. So, I've been picking up my cameras, and making time for assignments and personal work. The images you see here are a sampling of some of the places I have visited, events I have covered and people I have met.

As a picture editor at The New York Times Magazine and daily newspaper in the early 1990's, I was one of a team of four editors who shaped award winning visual coverage of major world events, including the fall of the Eastern Bloc, the first Gulf War, Tiannamen Square, the Oil Fires of Kuwait, and several Olympic Games. Also, while at the Times, I enjoyed working with many talented photographers in producing eye catching covers and spreads of well known political and cultural figures, and was instrumental in the development of the first image browser in the newsroom and in helping the newspaper to transition from analog to digital production processes. Five years as deputy picture editor for feature photography at Sports Illustrated further honed my conceptual and editorial skills. In the late 1990's, I co-founded and co-published, Journal E, an online magazine devoted to human storytelling through photography and new media. The site was one of, if not the first, online publication to regularly present streaming media stories, and twice took best use of photography on the interent honors at the prestigous Pictures of the Year competion.

All of these experiences have given me a great deal of insight into the development of strong visual narrative and the requirements of photographic assignments of all kinds.

One of my most satisfying photographic assignments was a year long project documenting the work of artist/architect Maya Lin. Among the many manifestations of the project was the publication of a feature story in The New York Times Sunday Magazine, inclusion in the book Fountains: Splash and Spectacle published by the Cooper Hewitt National Museum of Design and Rizzoli, and lead poster art for the Academy Award winning documentary film: Maya Lin: A Strong Clear Vision 

In the world of sports, I have been fortunate enough to cover ten Olympic Games, thirteen Wimbledon Championships, twelve French Opens, twenty United States Opens and most major sporting events, some as a photographer, and others as an editor.
