2015 sporting round up
I was fortunate enough to photograph a good few events last year, some I even competed in. With one event under my belt this year and another on the horizon next week I thought it a good time to share a few of my favourite images of the year:
The Arc of Attrition
Hard to believe this was a year ago. Cornwall's toughest footrace and my first film project. A great event not to be missed. I'll be there again this year marshalling and taking some photos; next year I hope to be running.
And here is the film to accompany the event:
Trannack school hosts a children's cross country event in March every year and the girls have been going for the last few years. Its a tough hilly course but a lot of fun. Last year the weather was cold but dry - a great improvement on the hail storms of 2014:
I've photographed various rounds of the Tempus Lesiure Cornish Triathlon series over the years; Helston was the first of 2015. Here Dave Bartlett of Team GB comes up the hill into Wendron:
My second time around running this 44 mile ultra; crap photo but its the only one I took!
Cornish Judo Championships
Bronwen fighting hard at the Cornish Judo Chamionships, Penzance leisure centre
Mud Crew photoshoot
I was commissioned to shoot images for the flyers to a new ultra - the Quest - by Mud Crew Events. Mud Crew trail runner Jess Williams and I were given special access to Tintagel Castle for the shoot.
A miserable day for a bike ride, by anyone's standards!
My second ultra of the year and by far my best performance. Everything went well and I enjoyed the day immensely. Some of my images were later included in issue two of Ultra magazine along with a write up of the day
Another triathlon and another result for Team GB athlete Dave Bartlett:
My third ultra of the year and first 100 miler. An emotional 29 hours and 15 mins!
St Ives Triathlon
The last in the series:
And finally we round off the year as we began, with a Mud Crew event. The Scrooge is 9 miles of mud, water obstacles and hard running around The Lost Gardens of Helligan. I put together another short film as well as doing the photos:
