Photography has always been on the frontlines of action and adventure sports — the relationship between the two is undeniable. These two art forms that have grown together, shattered expectations, and reached new heights of creativity. I'm very excited to see what the future holds for both.
There are definitely parallels between the world of photography and the world of extreme sports. Both require an incredible amount of patience and dedication to grow. You'll find that the more you practice and overcome your failures, the more likely you'll grow into a stronger, more focused photographer.
For me, what makes a great action and adventure sport image is the visual harmony between an environment and the athlete.
