2016 Revolution Powerlifting Series: Revenant Rising
Every sport presents it’s own obstacles to capture by camera. Part of the thrill of photography is to rise to that challenge, to find a way to faithfully represent the event as it unfolds. The 2016 RPS Revenant Rising presented an entirely difficult set of circumstances to shoot. The room was dark, it’s an unfamiliar sport and the action was contained to a central point. But after a few minutes spent observing, the story came into focus. These men and women each possessed a deep determination to succeed. You could see their intense stares and hear their guttural cries as they pushed themselves to their mental and physical limits. Red faced and breathless, each one shone the pride of victory or the agony of defeat. The attempts were brief but exhausting. These competitors quite literally raised the bar for an exciting and entertaining display of sport.
