Good Action Photography captures not only the actual image, but helps to convey the movement and experience happening at that moment. Sporting events, car races, horse races, aviation events, and adventure sports all have a story to tell from the athlete to the driver and good action photography conveys those stories and feelings in a single image. A good action photographer will have an excellent camera and is often familiar (heck even better, an aficionado) with the event or sport you want to capture. Talk to your photographer before the event and help them understand what you want to convey with photos. Is your photo story about the place, the people, the experience? Has the photographer shot a similar event? How will the photography position him or herself to best capture the action.
