Wodshots – The Man Behind Iconic CrossFit Photography

They are moments frozen in time, as some like to refer to them. Good photographs tell stories, evoke emotions or show us something we might have missed.

Shooting is easy, but it takes a masterful eye to produce an emotive or timeless photograph. Ramon Alberich, known for his CrossFit photography under Wodshots, has taken some of the most iconic pictures in the sport.

He was introduced to CrossFit through a friend who asked Ramon to take some pictures of him back in 2015. That was his first encounter with the sport.

The moment that changed it all happened the same year at the Reebok CrossFit Invitational in Madrid where, as Press, Ramon had the chance to photograph international athletes and the atmosphere of the sport.
