Creative Showcase: The Best of Sports Photography

Photographing athletes is a dream for many professionals, but it isn’t an easy thing to do. Sports Photography comes in many different shapes and sizes. There are actions shots and promos, gritty pictures and elegant close-ups. The world of sports photography is as diverse as sports themselves.

Sports photography is often a lightning fast process and knowledge of the game can go a long way to getting that perfect shot. Being able to predict where an athlete is going to be or what he or she is going to do before they do it ensures you don’t miss out on what’s coming next. You need impeccable timing, great equipment and a quick trigger finger to be a sports photographer and luckily we know more than a few people who check all those boxes.

Below are just a few of the best sports photographers we know. You can see all the sports photographers AtEdge has on its roster on our Specialties page.

Maxine Helfman Captures a Different Side of James Franco

Photographer Maxine Helfman recently had the opportunity to photograph James Franco the artist, not James Franco the actor. The shoot was for the New York magazine and the goal was to capture a different side of Franco.

You see, James Franco isn’t just an actor, he’s also a wildly hated artist. There are tons of articles all over the internet about why you should hate him and his art. He’s regularly slapped with labels like “poser” and “faker,” and the art world seems to love to hate him as a whole.

That’s where Helfman comes in. The feature article was about Franco sitting down and having a discussion with one of his biggest critics and Helfman was tasked with creating a cover image for the piece. According to New York photography director Jody Quon, Helfman “has a very vivid sense of photography and a painterly quality as well.” This is what led to the cover image being “van-Gogh-as-tortured-artist,” as Quon put it.

The end result of the campaign was a series of brilliant images that portray Franco in a delightfully new light.

Clouds of Luxury: RJ Muna for Airbus

RJ Muna teamed up with Dutch artist Berndnaunt Smilde for an Airbus corporate jet campaign titled, ACJ Nimbus. The duo was tasked with capturing the luxury experience of flying on an Airbus corporate jet in a new & inventive way.

For the images, Smilde created unique cloud-like floating structures by spraying a fine mist of water & then blowing smoke into it and RJ then shot the imagery from a low point of view so that the clouds convey a sense of grandeur & freedom high up in the air.

Each photograph, respectively titled Serenity, Freedom, and Harmony, accurately reflects the experience of owning and traveling via an Airbus jet.

Richard Schultz’s Personal Project Puts A Spotlight on Tobacco Farming

In his recent project, Richard Schultz traveled to Kentucky to document tobacco harvesting.

Richard describes his experience shooting at the tobacco farm:

“I feel fortunate to be brought face-to-face, yet again, with Mexican migrant laborers who come to work in our country and do the hard work very few “Americans” would be willing to do. These images weren’t shot to be about Mexican immigration, they were meant to be about the harvest and labor in our country. It was just interesting to see that the farmers aren’t able to find any U.S. citizens who are willing to work that hard.”

Take a look at more of the images here, and check out Richard’s AtEdge portfolio and website for more of his lifestyle work.

Tim Tadder & Epson: The Power of the Photographic Print

Epson just released a new campaign to celebrate the power of the printed photograph. For the project, Tim Tadder and other legendary photographers such as Steve McCurry, Jeremy Cowart, Stephen Wilkes, Elizabeth Carmel, Amy Toensing, Lois Greenfield, Gregory Crewdson, Mark Seliger, Monica Stevenson and John Paul Caponigro were approached by Epson to appear in a video to share their inspirations, processes and views on the importance of the photography print.

Tim says, “So much time and energy goes into making the photograph. If the print is not perfect, it is not worthy of a print. It is not worthy of sharing.”

Check out the video below.

New Work: Thomas Chadwick

English photographer and Chicago resident Thomas Chadwick has updated his wide ranging portfolio with a piece he shot, directed and wrote about Chicago boxer Dimar “El Animal” Ortuz.

From Thomas,

Documenting Dimar prepare for an upcoming fight was eye opening. What he goes through on a daily basis is grueling. He’s physically tough and mentally focused. At the same, time he surprised me with how warm and open he is. He’s an exceptional person. I really enjoyed my time with him.

I would like to thank the people that helped me bring this project to life. Nicholas Price, Curtis Schmidt, Nealle Dipaolo, Agnieszka Ray,a Mike Shimer, Tyler Lundberg, Erica Chadwick, and Joe Lombardo
