Heinz Kluetmeier Photographer

Heinz Kluetmeier has photographed Vince Lombardi, Richard Nixon, Secretariat, Steve McQueen and Evel Knievel – all in one lifetime. (As far as we know).

“Heinz Kluetmeier was captivated by photography early on. At the age of 15 he was already shooting pictures for the Associated Press – capturing such people as Vince Lombardi, Paul Hornung, John F. Kennedy and Richard Nixon. It was not long before the lure of photography got the better of him, and in 1969, Kluetmeier became a staff member of Time, Inc.. He shot for Time as well as Sports Illustrated and Life magazines. He has since shot over 100 covers for Sports Illustrated and in 1986 was named the Director of Photography at the magazine. He has subsequently returned to the rigors of photography on the road.”
