My portraits depict the individual physical emotion that consumes an athletes state of mind before entering the psychological intensity of training. During the process of creating this series I wanted to understand my subjects environment and their personalities. Therefore I have moved away from the studio and captured the subject in context. From a young age I have been coaching children to compete in the sport of gymnastics and was myself training and competing from a young age. I wanted to show the determination and commitment that is fundamental to succeeding in such a highly competitive environment.
