Entry Description

THE SPORTS PORTRAIT SERIES For many years now I wanted to do a portrait series of athletes. At the top op their game, they can have a tremendous impact and as a photographer I wanted to show this. My way is to reflect their perfectionism in my photos. I pay attention to where the viewer must focus. I wrap the athlete in a mood. I want you to see the action, muted colors, depth and background as a surprise.
