A collection of sports action and features
Barry Kough, my old boss at the Lewiston Morning Tribune, told me he liked to look at the sports portion of a photographer’s portfolio first.
The challenge of sports photography was a level playing field that allows for more objective comparisons between photographers’ work.
Hand-eye coordination, observational skills, and knowledge of the game all come into play. The athletic event begins, is played and ends in predictable fashion. What a photographers does with the time in between is up to them.
I know what he meant.
Here are a few of my favorite sports images from over the years.
