We have featured a few times images capturing pro athletes in action and grassroots activities. There may be no better photographer from that world that Walter Iooss, Jr. Sports Illustrated offers a video interview interspersed with some of Walter’s great shots of pro and amateur athletes in action and some in set poses. Definitely worth a look.
You can learn more about Walter and see additional work at his website.
Finally, Walter provides his favorite SI shots here. One of my favorite shots ended up in his own top 12.
