Tio Von Hale, an artist from Los Angeles who also describes himself as a "visual engineer," has a talent for lensing the intricacies of athletic movements -- something that's seen prominently in his portraits of dancers.

In order to achieve an artful effect, Tio Von Hale focuses in on his subjects in a way that's immediately captivating -- which comes from his use of complementary settings, lights and of course, the athletic prowess of those he photographs.

He supplies their actions with more power as well, adding contrast to the water, sand or props that they play with. In doing this, he makes their actions seem almost magical, especially considering that the portraits of dancers sometimes depict them in a type of void space that looks unconstrained by gravity.
