Everything has to be organized.
Terrell is highly organized, and his Super Bowl workflow is a prime example. When he ran 49ers photo coverage during Super Bowl LIV, he planned out everything, from double-checking his whole team’s gear to mapping out routes in the stadium.
“It’s all about telling the story, but everything is still planning and being organized,” says Terrell.
His organized workflow allows him to move quickly in any situation.
Wow your team – and your fans – with speed.
Terrell can deliver images from the field to his teammates in design, social media and marketing in seconds so they can turn them around to engage fans in real time. He helped build out Levi’s Stadium with 12 network access points so he and his team could use wireless FTP to send photos instantly to PhotoShelter during the game. Even on the road, Terrell can deliver images in two minutes thanks to cutting-edge tools.
Now, 49ers fans can see the best celebration image even before the next play.
