Sport is an ‘ART’. No matter how you look at it, the performance of each of these athletes is a true art form. The years dedicated to becoming an elite athlete is truly staggering. I want to photograph elite athletes performing, capturing the true essence of each sport or dance. Some of these images will be used as part of a panel of work to be submitted to the Royal Photographic Society to earn an accreditations. This is an ongoing personal project that still requires a few more participants. If you possess this level of talent, please contact me on this link


Let’s showcase your talent and elevate your profile!
