25 Action Packed Photographs of Sports To Inspire You

Sports are great to photograph even if you aren't particularly a sporty person yourself. They are filled with passion and some really impressive action that is only possible to see to the fullest thanks to photography. One of the greatest photographers of all times Martin Munkácsi (he even inspired Cartier-Bresson into taking photographs seriously) used a 4×5 large format camera to capture action and sports. If that wasn't enough trouble, he was even able to shoot handheld… Today we have beautiful and extremely powerful tools that are able to capture action in ways that are beyond the wildest dreams of those photographers.
