2018 Flora Distinguished Visiting Journalist: Jeff Cable

He started his career in marketing, but photography was his passion. Now, Jeff Cable travels the world to capture its visual stories, including the sidelines of the last six Olympic Games. He’ll bring the stories of his journey and his favorite images to Whitworth this fall as the 2018 Flora Distinguished Visiting Journalist.

Cable will speak on “A journey from corporate meeting rooms to photographing the Olympics” on Tuesday, October 30 at 7 p.m. in the Robinson Teaching Theatre in Weyerhaeuser Hall. This presentation is free and open to the public.

From his official bio:

Jeff Cable started his professional photography career in the San Francisco Bay Area in 2004, photographing Bar and Bat Mitzvahs. For more than 25 years, Cable served as a marketing executive at companies like Symantec, Magellan, and Micron. But while traveling the world for his corporate job, his interest and passion for photography grew quickly, and his photography business grew even faster. He left the corporate world in 2016 to dedicate himself full-time to his photography. He has earned respect around the globe for his creative images and for sharing his love of photography with others. He’s best known for capturing photos for the US Olympic Committee, photographing the last six Olympic games, in Beijing, Vancouver, London, Sochi, Rio de Janeiro, and PyeongChang.

The Flora Distinguished Visiting Journalist appointment is made possible thanks to the Lou Flora Memorial Fund, which was established in 1997 to honor Lou Flora, a longtime friend of Whitworth University, and to recognize his commitment to rewarding excellence in communications among Whitworth students.
