Rebecca Butala How is a freelance picture editor, primarily for the NHL & Getty Images, based in her hometown of Los Angeles. She spent 16 years on staff with Allsport Photography USA/Getty Images. As a field photo editor with Getty Images she provided onsite and immediate distribution of pictures to wire service clients at major global sporting events, including the Olympic Games, many World Championships of Swimming/Athletics, Super Bowls, World Series, and major golf & tennis tournaments. Currently, Rebecca leads the onsite editing team for NHL Images at their annual events including the Stanley Cup Final and All-Star Game. But her favorite aspect of 25 years in sports photography has always been to help and guide some of the top sports photographers in the world, whom she calls friends. Now it is her honor to join the advisory board of the DPPF to help and guide the next generation of sports photographers. When she is not traveling to sporting events, she cherishes the time with her husband and their 11 year old son, Kory.

Rebecca is the Program Consultant for the DPPF.
