Watching gifted athletes doing what they've trained to do is impressive to say the least, but have you ever stopped to look at the sheer beauty of the movement? Professional or amateur, the grace of their movement and environment can be an incredible artistic expression.

I've  gone through thousands of portraits, conceptual (composited) advertising images, and even live events to pull images from a handful of truly inspirational photographers that are creating images that capture the intensity of their subjects — beautifully showcasing their pain, grace, strength, and vanity of their chosen sport.
