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.

Chris Armstrong started as a photographer and worked his way through film, television, advertising, and back to photography (as an agent), Chris has worked with legendary filmmakers (most notably Robert Altman); nearly all of the major production companies in L.A.; and ad agencies (including Deutsch, Publicis, and Wunderman). This experience has given Chris a well rounded (if not dysfunctional) view of the creative world which he’s more than happy to share with you.
