"Tom Brady #12 of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers celebrates with the Lombardi Trophy after defeating the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl LV at Raymond James Stadium on February 07, 2021 in Tampa, Florida."

Every game has its challenges. Be it preseason, regular season or the Super Bowl.

In the age of Covid-19 restrictions, shooting the biggest game in North America, or the globe considered by some, it was our biggest hurdle yet.

A game we at Getty Images usually cover with a massive team had to be done with only three photographers a couple of technical and editorial support on scene.

Not only was that a new way of approaching such a historic match - we also didn't have field access. Strategy in our movements became much more of a thought process and deliberate.

At the end of the day, it was a huge success for our team. From the coaching to the players, it felt good.

As for myself, the best way to describe the image above is from a recent Twitter post by professional golfer Tommy Fleetwood below. It totally describes photography perfectly:

"Ever have one of those rounds of golf when you’re so frustrated at this stupid game for not giving you what you deserve? Then, just when you're about to lose it, you hit the shot that makes you realize why you're so hopelessly in love with it."
