Chris Farina: A Top Boxing Photographer Shares the Tricks of His Trade

Here’s a fascinating 14-minute documentary about the work of Chris Farina, one of the world’s top boxing photographers and the official shooter for Top Rank. Farina shares about his career journey and how he goes about shooting some of the biggest athletes and fights in the sport.


One of the things Farina talks about is the importance of getting to know the fighters’ habits in order to anticipate what they’re going to do.

“What we shoot is not what we see. We shoot before we see it,” he says. “If you see it through the camera, you missed it.”
