Flashback to 2007: Chicago photographer John Gress's Gay Games VII coverage earns a top spot in sport photojournalism award

Chicago-based photographer John Gress has spent his career with one foot in two different realms of photography: commercial and editorial. His unique resume has allowed him to develop a dynamic style that produces striking images whether they are produced in the real world or on set.

Gress' work as a photojournalist regularly appears on the Reuters news wire and in major publications around the world, including Der Spiegel, Le Monde, Time, The New York Times, The Times of London, The Washington Post, and Sports Illustrated. His assignments have included the 2010 Stanley Cup, the 2008 election of President Barack Obama, the 2007 Southern California wildfires, the 2006 Super Bowl, and the 2005 World Series. In 2007, he was named a finalist for the National Press Photographers Association's The Best of Photojournalism Sports Photojournalist of the Year competition.

Among the work earning him this title were photos from 2006's Gay Games VII in Chicago. Here are a few of those photos:
