So I know a few of us around the forum have posted and talked about this pic. I've been trying to hunt down who the actual photographer was and I finally found it.

http://www.gettyimages.com/detail/n...of-uconn-kemba-walker-in-news-photo/111029264

Now I'm trying to figure out how to get a good print of it, but getty images isn't making it that easy.
Anyone else know how this all works?

I also sent a message to the photographer on Facebook asking him for help.

1) 77-74 That is awesome. How big is it?

2) Def- Add me to the list of people looking for a framed print of this shot as big as I can get it. The picture needs to be hanging in the mancave of every husky fan for the rest of our natural lives.

8x10, I went here, saved it to a flash drive, and went over to cvs and printed them out using their self print lab or whatever its called. Definitely my most prized possession.

I did something similar with the same shot, but was unhappy with the quality of the print, really want it to be photo quality. Your's looks like the resolution was a tad better than mine.

The image defaultroute linked to seems to be a wider shot than the image 77-74 linked (you can see Shabzz and Gibbs in defaultroute's image but not in the other one). Anyone have a high-res copy of the wide-shot image defaultroute linked to? I seem to recall someone linked it on the old board but I can't to find it. Thanks.

Someone did post it and I blew it up to 20x30 via york photo and they cropped it and was pixelated. I'm looking for the high res version so I can print large. But it seems like you have to purchase the print and it's labeled an editoral print. hmm... maybe I should ask Don Amore. I'll keep you all posted.

These photos are super low res compared to what they were shot on. They really need start selling this one as a print!
