"What makes a great action shot? It's a simple enough question but there's no simple answer - you could argue subject, setting and timing are the three main elements that turn themselves into a single arresting moment but, ultimately, it is the skill of the photographer that captures the perfect moment - and the viewers imagination." Andy Steel, Sport and Action, 2008

This shoot was inspired by several different things; in particular two books (Skateboarding by Fabrice Le Mao and Sport And Action by Andy Steel) and also a photographer called Brian Caissie, his website is
As well as being inspired by the photographs Brian Caissie takes I also like his sketchbooks, these have inspired other projects.

This is my favourite image from this shoot. As well as liking the angle and composition of this image I also really like the colours. This photo was taken using a flashgun.

This image and the image below it were taken using a fish eye extension on top of my 14-45mm lens. This lens allowed me to get close to my subject and I think it makes the subjects look higher than they are
