A different kind of Athlete Portrait

An Athlete portrait is mostly of a person in sports gear, at their place of work, portrayed in all their power and glory.

We wanted to mix this up and show the other side of athletes: That there is also a private person behind the public figure. Someone who is vulnerable and human. Someone who does not have to excel in all areas of his life at all times.

This is also why we chose this soft, natural light, and the black and white, to make it more moody and intimate.
