25 Action Packed Photographs of Sports To Inspire You

Last Updated on by

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.

While our gear is able to capture all the action, sometimes we have trouble getting over that last hurdle with our photography. Take this quiz and find out what holds you back from reaching the next level in your photography.


Today we want to share with you 25 photographs of sports to inspire you, but that's not enough for us, we also want to see your sports photographs. Please share your images with us at the Forums!
