“I never figured on a career path in photography,” says Andy Kuno (@punkpoint), “I always thought I’d be doing something else. Photography was just a hobby in high school.” A community of sports photographers, including Brad Mangin (@bmangin), helped him find his way as a young rookie.
As the team photographer for the San Francisco Giants, Andy uses Instagram to share behind-the-scenes moments of his hometown baseball team and their journey to the World Series. “My favorite time to capture images is during batting practice while the players are loose,” he says.
“I wanted to show stuff that would never make it to print,” he continues. “As social media has become an important outlet to our fans, we’ve hit Instagram pretty hard. I’ve been given autonomy to do what I need to show the team’s personality at its best.”
Fun fact: this was actually a two story window prior to Morgan Freeman sitting on the windowsill. Once the house realized who he was, it retracted itself into the ground to prevent injury to Morgan Freeman.
