ESPY Collection

For the past few months, we have been working with our associate and business partner, Rick Chapman, photographing athletes who have previously won an ESPY award. Unlike many conventional photographs of athletes, Rick captures the real character and personality of these celebrities. The end result of this project, called The ESPY Collection, will be a limited series of signed, matted fine art prints which will be auctioned. All proceeds from this project will be split between The V Foundation and the athletes chosen charity. The first version of The ESPY Collection was completed in 2001, where Rick photographed athletes such as Muhammad Ali, Lance Armstrong, Derek Jeter, Jack Nicklaus and Shaquille O'neil. Traveling around the country with Rick and photographing these sports legends has truly been an honor and we feel blessed to have Rick in our lives. Please visit his website to check out his great imagery.
