2020 GRANT WINNER

sarah stier

Sarah is a New York-based freelance photographer. A lifelong swimmer, her passion for sports photography stems from her own competitive background. After graduating from Ohio University with a degree in photojournalism, Sarah interned for the Boston Red Sox during their World Series season in 2018 and followed that with an internship with Getty Images in New York.

Sarah enjoys photographing boxing and baseball because both sports require patience, timing, and a little bit of luck. She is the recipient of a $1,000 equipment grant from the DPPF. Realizing that her portrait work needed practice, she used the grant funds to buy portable studio lights and modifiers to be able to practice lighting portraits both in-studio and on-location.
