Kevin Clark's path to becoming a full-time sports photographer for The Washington Post starts with an AIDS quilt. "I was all set to set to pursue a career in journalism as a writer until a portion of the AIDS quilt came to the school library," recalls Clark. "With my teacher's camera in hand and virtually no idea how to operate it, a photo appeared on the front page with my name and the spark was lit." This first experience prompted him to work on the campus newspaper at the University of Washington. And from there, Clark honed his craft through internships with the Seattle Times, Times-Picayune, Oregonian and Ft. Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel before finally landing at The Post in January 2001. "Photojournalism is one of the few jobs that takes you to the heights of joy and to the depths of sorrow," says Clark. "It's the only job where you can stand in a field on sugar beets one day and photograph Ken Griffey Jr. the next."

Training Camp Initiation

Coach Steve Spurrier jokingly tells Redskins rookie quarterback Patrick Ramsey, taped to a goalpost by his new teammates after a morning practice session in Carlisle, Pa., that it won't be too long before someone comes by to cut him loose.
