Event photographer at the London Marathon again ...

Published on Tue May 17, 2016 by

I have notched up ten years as an event photographer at the London Marathon !

Working again for Marathonfoto, I managed a team of photographers on my usual course location, on the Embankment at the 40km mark. Event photography is all about the location, so even when familiar with a place, it is wise to arrive early and check sight-lines. Indeed, since the 2015 race, there has been big road changes in the area, including the installation of a large wide cycle lane. So I had to alter a few of our regular photographer positions from previous years.

A new pedestrian island however provided a good replacement – with runners going both sides of the spot and a couple of bus shelters, which meant some extra space. Ensuring a nice colourful background is always a requirement – which is never really a problem, as it is a prime location for the many charities that support and sponsor individuals. So loads of banners, balloon arches and people make it pretty and certainly create a great atmosphere.

Anyway, before the photos, a few numbers, for fans of statistics …

Presentation at Digifest 2021 Festival, Durban, South Africa

A couple of weeks ago I was honoured to be asked to present and exhibit some of my artworks at the “Unmasked” Digifest and annual research conference 2021, based in Durban, South Africa

"The photos were great – they were exactly what we were after in terms of capturing the networking, the high profile speakers, the Awards winners and also the fun of the Awards dinner. It was great to have such an involved photographer at the event capturing as much as possible and we would be very happy to use you again"
