Photographer Jim Kemper has been taking and perfecting his photography skills for nearly 30 years.  As a result, he has traveled all across the world, where he goes to capture and discover new possibilities for his art.

A large bulk of his photographs come from the sports world.  Kemper attends many live competitions along with in studio shoots for his photographs.  Here is an example of one of his in studio photos, with the most recent member of the Chicago Bulls Dwayne Wade while he was still on the Miami Heat.

Although it’s clear Kemper has a knack for photographs, live sporting events are a different beast.  Unlike a studio, you never know what is going to happen at a sporting event.

This is why Kemper study’s the sporting event, the contestants, and everything in between so he assures to be in the right spot at the right time.
