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.
