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.
