Summit Sports Workshop

Heinz is a great example of a life-long editorial that never stops getting the best pictures from a sporting event and always being unique & different.

My Story

A lifetime at Sports Illustrated produced the ultimate portfolio for Heinz who has been photographer, senior staff photographer today and for several years, director of photography. His pictures have become icons such as the American hockey team celebrating their victory over the Russians at Lake Success. But once again at the Beijing Olympics, Heinz made THE picture of the games — the .01 second victory of Michael Phelps in the men’s 100-meter butterfly, from a remote cameras looking up from the bottom of the pool. For an entire career, Kluetmeier has brought talent, intensity and innovation to the pages of Sports Illustrated.
