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.

Five of the Best Underwater Photographers in AtEdge

Underwater photography is a dream for many professionals. It isn’t always easy, but it often results in some of the most breathtaking images you’ll ever see. The AtEdge community is full of incredible underwater photographers with unbelievable talent and style.

Take photographer David Martinez for example. He’s a globetrotting photographer with a passion for the surf and the sea. According to him, “he’s just as comfortable with a huge production crew as he is alone on his surfboard with his underwater camera.”

Then there’s photographer Christopher Wilson. A former writer, art director and designer, Wilson found his passion for photography after spending 15 years in the advertising world. His underwater portraits have a very distinct feel to them. The endlessness of the water surrounding his subjects creates something that feels both intimate and ominous.

Embry Rucker‘s passion for communicating the human narrative is clearly visible in his underwater photography.

The subjects of Hollis Bennett‘s underwater photography are a bit fishier than most, which makes sense for a man who grew up in Knoxville, loves the outdoors and has lived on three different coasts.

Lastly, we have one of the most talented underwater photographer’s around, Dana Neibert. There’s a lot more to his portfolio than just underwater photography, but don’t let that fool you. Some of his ocean shots are the most stunningly beautiful photos we’ve seen.
