This collection of athlete editorials spans age, gender and race. Editorials in this style tend to take athletes out of their conventional comfort zones -- out of the field of play -- and puts them in front of a camera.

In some cases, athletes enter the realm of fashion and appear as models in magazine spreads. Athletes Serena Williams and David Beckham however, don clothes from their own collections and model them for the public's consumption. Williams and Beckham are representative of the modern celebrity-athlete who uses their popularity in sports to make the foray into other industries.

Other photo shoots take a different approach and showcase athletes doing what they do best, in the middle of play. These photoshoots turn the perception of a rough and rugged athlete into an artistic and creative subject.
