Brad Smith became the director of photography at Sports Illustrated March 14 — which amounted to a full circle for he began his career in picture editing/administration as one of the crew of picture editors at the magazine more than 20 years ago. Over the years and in between, he was picture editor in the photo department of the White House and for the past seven years, was sports picture editor of The New York Times. He has been a regular instructor at the Sports Photography Workshop for ten years where he has been one of the most effective faculty members. At the workshop, he is not only a careful portfolio reviewer/career counselor but also an effective recruiter of new talent for his magazine/newspaper.
