A lot of photographers are under a lot of pressure to get the shot. The art director took a chance and went against convention by hiring Mr. Tice. I'll bet the AD was nervous since there's no more Polaroid to proof the shot. But again, they're working with a master with decades of experience. I'm not diminishing the work of photographers that do their work digitally, but I think this is the case of quality vs quantity. 8x10 will slow you down and think more. I'll bet the photo editor is happy because he or she doesn't have to swim through thousands of shots to find right one.
