From the sport to behind the lens: Famous athletes turned photographers

Athletes turned photographers. Taking their unique and skilled eyes on the field/court/ice and transferring it to behind the lens.

Some of the best athletes on the planet have shown to be talented in other fields, like becoming successful designers or actors. And in recent years, athletes have also turned to photography to showcase a completely different side of their talents.

As these athletes get behind the lens, they often find themselves photographing sports events. Some have also gone outside the sports world and photographed concerts, wildlife and their experiences in other countries. 

Here are some of the most notable names of athletes turned photographers.

Kevin Durant

KD, The Slim Reaper, had a front row seat to Super Bowl 50 when he was invited by the NFL as a credentialed photographer for one of the biggest sporting events in the world.

Kevin Durant photography. It even also has a nice ring to it.

Durant has talked about wanting to explore himself outside of basketball. And photography is one of the many ventures he has shown an interest in. He is as skilled a basketball player as there is on the planet. But he has also shown that his talents go beyond the basketball court.

Durant’s photography portfolio looks like it will just keep on building.

Ken Griffey Jr. 

One of the best baseball players to ever play the game and as influential a baseball player as there has ever been. The Kid has picked up a camera and become a professional photographer, working for places like ESPN.

He has been seen on the sidelines of many NFL and NCAA football games, even photographing a game in which his son played in. Ken Griffey Jr. has taken photography seriously ever since he retired in 2010. He is the prototypical example of star athlete turned photographer

Randy Johnson

One of the best pitchers of his era is The Big Unit.

Johnson, who majored in photojournalism in college, began photographing for major media outlets after his retirement. He has photographed for NASCAR.

Johnson has also gone outside of the sports world with his photography. He has captured wildlife like the African safaris, musical artists and concerts. Still, nonetheless he remains one of the most famous and prestigious athletes turned photographers.

Tyson Chandler

The former NBA Defensive Player of the Year winner got into photography right in the prime of his career.

He debuted a photography exhibition called “A Year in a New York Minute.” It documented photographs he took over the course of a year in New York City, London, and Tanzania.

Chandler has said that his 7-foot-1 frame allows him to see angles that most aren’t able to. A benefit of being one of many athletes turned photographers.

Annice Lynn

A former National Figure Skater, Lynn has become an award-winning sports photographer. Her work often captures what goes on behind the scenes of figure skating. She uses her experience as a figure skater to capture the moments that someone not familiar with the sport may miss.

5 young photographers break down how they capture the ‘perfect shot’

When it comes to photography, it’s all about capturing moments…

But when it comes to having “the eye,” it’s either you’re born with it or you ain’t!

Still, there are plenty of ways to up your game especially if you’re just starting out and want to learn how to get those crispy shots you’re looking for.

It’s all about gaining experience and learning on the go. That’s what is going to help you develop your look, and it never hurts to learn from kids who’ve paved their own lane already.

We spoke to five photographers who explained exactly how it is they get their shots the way they want them. It turns out everyone’s process is different.

Greg Travers

Age: 24

Location: Brooklyn

Years Shooting: 8

Handle: @graverst

“Often times, I’ll just be walking around the city and see some dope shit and take a step back, survey the scene and decide how I want to capture that moment in time. Then, the composition is the next most important component.”

“The composition really makes the image — I always follow the rule of thirds. With a model, it’s a bit different and I normally just shoot the breeze and ask some open-ended questions while we are shooting to make them feel as comfortable as possible.”

“Between their statements is often the best moment to capture genuine emotion.”

Paris Toribio

“Feel present and take control.”

“I think the best way is the surprise. First, prepare the shot, then call the person that you are shooting. Wait just a couple of seconds for them to get comfortable and take it when they are least expecting.”

“I was with two friends during my first rooftop adventure and thought ‘I’m in Paris, I need the perfect shot’. So I sit at the edge of the roof and tell my friend to just shoot something quickly.”

“I knew that being on the edge during night time with the Eiffel Tower in the back was the right mix of danger for the shot.”

Jesse Vargas

Age: 21

Location: DMV

Years Shooting: 7

Handle: @vargas.visuals

“Starts with having a vision for what you want to create; for me, the shot doesn’t end when I hit the button, it’s when I’m done fully editing.”

“So when I see the ‘perfect shot’ I’m seeing what I want the finished product to look like and it’s almost like I’m achieving it with every shot.”

“It’s like life on a small scale, if you stay focused on your goal, you’re going to reach it. When I focus in on my perfect shot, I’m gonna hit it.”


Age: 21

Location: Queens, New York

Years Shooting: 3

Handle: @qollapse

“In order for me to get the perfect shot, I already have a mental image of how the shot is going to look.”

“In fashion photography, you spend days and sometimes weeks, planning your mood board, styling, pulling clothes, everything.”

There’s a lot of time invested into getting that camera in my hands, and that model in front of me, so when I’m there to press the shutter I already know what the final product is going to look like.
