Adam began his career as a news photographer at The Sydney Morning Herald in 1997 and his desire to specialise in sport photography saw him move to Getty Images in 1998. Since joining the Getty Images team, Adam has been based in Los Angeles, Sydney, Beijing, Tokyo and Munich where he continues to work today. Adam has photographed seven Olympic Games, and covered assignments around the globe for high profile magazines including Time Magazine, Sports Illustrated, Life Magazine, Harpers Bazaar and Marie Claire.
Adam’s pre-eminence in the field of sport action photography has been recognised widely throughout the photographic world. He has been awarded a number of major international awards, and in 2010 was part of the World Press Photo competition jury in Amsterdam.
Always seeking new challenges and experiences in photography, in 2007 Adam decided to broaden his expertise and began shooting advertising projects alongside his sports editorial work. Through both his sports and advertising photography, Adam constantly challenges people’s perceptions with fresh ideas – an element of his job that he particularly enjoys.
Advertising clients include: Adidas, Nike, New Balance, L’Oreal, BMW, Philips, General Motors, Coke and Sprite.
