New Project, Athletes: Before and After

So I’ve started working on a new project that compares portraits of athletes before and after working out/competing. It’s not necessarily a new concept, but it was one I wanted to explore.

I started out how I always start, photographing my friends and roommates. My roommate Josh is training to run the Seattle Marathon in November, so I snapped a few shots before he went for his run today. And as soon as he got back.

 

There isn’t much of a difference other than the sweat on his shirt. But that’s part of what I like about it. It’s about the subtle differences. I might try it again on a day that he goes for a longer run. I also want to shoot a hockey player, a cyclist, and a skateboarder. We’ll see how those turn out as well.
