I love telling stories through sport, through athletes at their best and most decisive moments. Capturing their performances as well as their dedication, concentration and spirit.
It is all about the main action, but it is also about the background with small pieces and fragments of a story behind that moment. “The camera makes you forget you’re there. It’s not like you are hiding but you forget, you are just looking so much.” (Annie Leibovitz – 1949).
Connecting with the athletes and the sport culture bringing out the best in both. “Photography for me is not looking, it’s feeling. If you can’t feel what you’re looking at, then you’re never going to get others to feel anything when they look at your pictures.” (McCullin – 1935).
Being ready to frame, shoot and capture a moment to remain in time. “To know ahead of time what you’re looking for means you’re then only photographing your own preconceptions, which is very limiting, and often false.” (Dorothea Lange – 1895 – 1995).
Athletes’ dedication and discipline deserve the highest photographic standards in return. “The best images are the ones that retain their strength and impact over the years, regardless of the number of times they are viewed.” (Anne Geddes – 1956).
