I worked again for Marathonfoto last weekend, covering the Helsinki city run. The event started and finished from the 1952 Olympic Stadium and although the weather conditions were poor for photography - heavy rain - I also undertook PR / public relations photography before the race for the organisers. Later I moved positions and was located on the finish-line for the athletes coming in.
Here are some photographs from around the city when it stopped raining for a few minutes. Interesting place to visit but like everywhere else in Scandinavia very expensive.

"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"
