Thanksgiving in the Middle East with Director of Photography Tom Wells

Atlanta based Director of Photography Tom Wells spent Thanksgiving this year in the Middle East with Fox Sports. The purpose of the trip was multifaceted and included a live broadcast with U.S. troops from an undisclosed location in Southwest Asia on Thanksgiving Day, as well as shoot several taped segments to air throughout the next year during the Superbowl and Daytona 500.

Tom and the Fox Sports team flew to the Middle East the week before Thanksgiving to begin preparation for the live broadcast during the Saints/Cowboys game. “It was an extremely rewarding experience,” said Tom. “We were able to experience a little slice of life that our troops overseas go through on a daily basis. Spending the holiday with them was an honor and something I’ll never forget.” A few of the segments have already aired on Fox Sports and are available for viewing on FoxSports.com. Be sure to tune into NFL on FOX every Sunday and this year’s Superbowl and Daytona 500 to see more!
