Always a hobbyist photographer since he minored in photography during his college days, Newman left his career as an Aerospace Engineer and has become a widely used and well-known sports photographer.

Since that time he went on to photograph Super Bowl games, World Series, NCAA College baseball, football and basketball events, track and field, MLS Soccer, Arena Football and many other sporting events that bring us those special moments from the world of sports. One of his favorite images occurred from the 2006 Super Bowl between Pittsburgh and Seattle, when a photo of MVP Hines Ward was selected for the cover of the Sports Illustrated Commemorative Super Bowl edition of Super Bowl XL.
His images frequently appear in Sports Illustrated, ESPN The Magazine, Street & Smith’s Sports Annuals, DK Publishing, Human Kinetics Publications, Scholastic Inc., Super Bowl Programs, NFL Team Video’s, Wall Calendars, and many other print outlets.
Newman spent the past 2 years as a staff photographer for WireImage after the NFL Photo group was dissolved.

He currently serves as team photographer for the NFL's St. Louis Rams (Marketing Division), the Arena Football League's Kansas City Brigade and for Major League Soccers Kansas City Wizards, and shoots NFL, MLB and other events on assignment for various media such as Getty Images and ESPN The Magazine.
