Almost famous professional freelance photographer who is wandering why soccer is called football or the other way around...
I'm also trying to make sports photography more beautiful.

"For an aspiring sports photographer, I look to your page for inspiration. Great shots, truly capturing the most important, and defining moments."

"Who could think that sport photography can be art...
I did not until I saw Toksuede's work...
There are so many pictures of sport but there are HIS pictures and the others, this is totally different from what you can see elsewhere.
Each year/season he could sell a book with his best pictures, it would be a best seller.
Every football game is for fun, Each pictures of Ryu is for art.
Thanks for showing us your pictures ;)"

"Wow, What can i say?
Well one thing that i can say is that i am speachless everytime he uploads a new photo.
He is so creative and does not follow the crowd.
He makes the"beautiful game" even more beautiful.
Each upload is stunning.
Simply the BEST sports photographer i have seen..."

"There is something about toksuede's football photos that bring the action to life. They are so much better than the standard stock photos you see in the media. You really get a feel for the moment the picture was taken. I always look forward to viewing new uploads as soon as they appear."

"In these days of High Definition TV football coverage, these photos make us remember quite how brilliant still photographs can be. So much sports photography aims "only" to capture a moment accurately (which is difficult enough). These photos do so much more. Inspirational."

"Ryu's shit is good.
At the beginning I created Art&Sport for people who would definitely let their artistic spirit (technique and sensibility) express himself on the subject of sport. Then I found him. And this is exactly what it was.
Ryu is one of the these photographers who still accept the chalenge of creating new images, new style on a topic that is shot at least 120000 times a second on earth. He must be crazy you think... well, it is nothing to say that... I know him and he is worth than that !
...And you didn't taste his food ! : ))"

""Football is the art" or "Artistic football"
His photography describes various football (or other sports, people) scene really artistic. I really love and admire his work... keep good work!

"I represent a sports website - www.thesportscamp... and would just like to thank Ryu for helping us get through our first season of existence which certainly wouldn't have been half as colourful without his great work in football photography.
All you fans of his work already know how exceptional his work is - I especially love the shots where he captures the evening or night sky in the background - but in addition to his great work is his generous nature, which has enabled us to provide really good coverage of the Champions League and Premiership this season.
Special thanks mate!"
