RIO DE JANEIRO — Gilbert native Larry Slater didn’t always have a passion for sports photography. It wasn’t until he took a trip to the NCAA wrestling championship in Las Vegas in 2005 that his interest in photography was sparked.

At that event, Slater was seated far from the competition floor and noticed a group of photographers right in the middle of the action. He immediately inquired about how he could get credentialed to be in that same position.
