I met JOHN EDER several years ago when he shot two covers for us for David Lauren's classic Gen X Swing Magazine ("The Magazine for People in Their 20's, the Age Group that Swings the Vote"). One of the covers was an Eder signature image of a young business man free-falling, and the other was of Matthew Fox, a cool guy long before "Lost".JOHN EDER WEBSITE
The Football Crowd (above) was commissioned by Getty Images back in the day when they still commissioned photographs. "We had 65 extras in a stadium in Glendora going through all the motions. It was totally artificial, not a real game. I really enjoy directing large crowds. I kind of amazed myself by memorizing the names of all the cast so I could direct them. At the time, I was moaning about how I wasn't making much dough on this mammoth gig - 65 extras, a stadium, six assistants, tons of equipment, etc. etc., and my editor said oh you are gonna make money! Sales were UNBELIEVABLE for the stadium shots."
