Paris 2024: AFP Ready to Capture Every Moment

As the countdown to the Olympics in Paris continues, the Agence France-Presse (AFP) is gearing up to provide its clients with a stunning array of photos from the events. With a team of 60 photographers on the ground, the AFP is set to deliver 3,000 daily images to clients around the world. The backdrop of Paris is sure to provide a picturesque setting for the events, with iconic landmarks like the Sacré-Cœur and the Seine River adding to the spectacle.

The key challenge for the AFP team will be to send out these photos as quickly as possible. With a carefully coordinated system in place, photographers will transmit raw images in real-time to editors who will then crop, color correct, and caption the photos before sending them out. The goal is to provide clients with a “ready-to-publish” photo within 50 seconds of the image being captured.

While technology has significantly improved the speed and quality of photo delivery, the eye of the photographer remains crucial in capturing the essence of the moment. With a focus on raw emotion and technical precision, AFP photographers like Anne-Christine Poujoulat are poised to capture the most compelling moments of the games.

As the world eagerly anticipates the start of Paris 2024, the AFP team stands ready to capture every thrilling moment and unforgettable image from the Olympic Games.
