First I’ll tell you what this book is not.

It’s not a book of great sports photography.

It’s not a book telling you step by step how to take great sports photos.

But I do believe there are certain qualities a great sports photo needs. It needs to be a sharp image. It needs to be peak action, faces showing if possible, and it needs to have really, really good lighting.

In this book, I won’t tell you a lie, but I will tell you a story. The good tales are all here.
