Tim Tadder 2014 World Cup Calendar
You may not know him but 6ft 7in American Tim Tadder is a photo journalist who after working for newspapers in Baltimore, Colorado and San Diego turned his attention to commercial photography and is best known for his high intensity sports imagery where he has worked with athletes such as Michael Phelps and Tom Brady.
Tim who refuses to buy a coat calls Southern California home only working on projects he likes decided to team up with Mike Campau and produce a calendar around next summer’s World Cup in Brazil.
Taddler travelled to the land of samba visiting the venues for the summer finals photographing them as a back drop on which Campau would superimpose models performing the 12 most important moves in soccer.
The challenge was to try and be true to the move while at the same time showing off the models best assets in a compilation that also gives off the soccer infused lifestyle that is living in Brazil.
While the images might seem as if they were computer generated it was a painstakingly long process to create but obviously a lot of fun to produce as you can see in the video below.
