Real-life photography expertise brought in for esports tournaments.
Motorsport specialist photographers at Getty Images have been assigned official in-game photographers for Gran Turismo’s online and live World Tour events.
The move to bring in Getty Images to capture images from the esports events is an attempt to bridge the gap between the virtual and real worlds.
Getty Images global head of content Ken Mainardis, said: “This partnership with [Gran Truism developer] Polyphony Digital signifies the next phase of sport photography and the true growth that is occurring across the esports landscape. Getty Images has long been at the forefront of innovating through its sport photography and by creating in-game imagery with expert motorsport photographers, Getty Images is staying ahead of the curve to deliver premium esports content to our customers around the world.”
