Wild, a former Zamboni driver, started his career in photography in 2005 when he interned for the Class A Hudson Valley Renegades in Wappingers Falls, NY, a Minor League affiliate of the Tampa Bay Rays. He later worked as the team photographer, covering Josh Hamilton’s comeback to baseball and Evan Longoria’s quick rise to the Majors.
Wild studied journalism under legendary American sports writer Roger Kahn (“The Boys of Summer“) in college before he interned and later freelanced as a reporter and photographer in 2006 with New York’s oldest newspaper, the Poughkeepsie Journal. He joined CBS Sports’ high school website, MaxPreps, in 2007 as a photographer and writer.
In 2009, Wild became a contributing volunteer photographer for the United States Military Academy at West Point, covering Army football games for the nation’s No.1-ranked college, along with West Point’s other Division I programs. He accompanied the football team to Dallas, Texas as the team’s photographer when the cadets captured the 2010 Armed Forces Bowl over SMU. His Army work has been published by The New York Times, ESPN.com, NBC, West Point Magazine and many others.
Wild became a contributor to USA TODAY Sports Images (formerly US Presswire) in 2011.
