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 now 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.
