“As a professional athlete in the NFL, I’m accustomed to having the camera directed at me. Picking up a camera a couple years ago enabled me to express my side of the story. Whether I’m at the training facility with my teammates, out shooting random moments I find interesting or documenting daily life, photography gives me that same spark of joy I feel on the field on Sundays.” – Romeo Okwara
