The art of capturing the essence of a movement at the right moment. 

The essence of a movement can be extremely powerful and explosive but also very subtle and quiet. When I photograph moving subjects, I often move along with them, following their flow, but always focusing on gestures and eyes. Movement is a dynamic process that needs an organic and instinctive approach. 

High end camera equipment is essential but my background in martial arts, dance and various sports has schooled my instinct and eye for movement. The photos created are dynamic, powerful and real. My aim is to showcase the incredible talent of any type of athlete. 

All my photos are taken during an active movement sequence.
