Triathlon

Shooting Ms Annah

One of the things I love about what I do, is that occasionally I get to hang out, one on one, with some really cool peeps. No big productions or corporate constraints, just good company and (hopefully, if I can keep my end of it up), intelligent conversation.

Give me a relaxed early morning with a camera, the company of a kindred spirit with a zest for life, and feed me the occasional coffee, and you will find that I’m one very happy camper indeed.

If we can laugh to the point of giggle fits, talk about conquering (and saving the world), discuss athletic goals and dreams, and maybe, just maybe, get some great images, then the day is a definite winner.

Thanks for ticking all of those boxes and for keeping it very real Ms Annah Watkinson. Read her bio here… http://bit.ly/1SXKgMj

Now if someone will give this chick a set of decent carbon wheels, the next shoot will look a lot more bling

Durbanville Triathlon 2016

The Durbanville Triathlon has become a ‘classic’ must do triathlon, and there is a good reason for that. It’s because it is always fun.

This year the ownership of the event was taken over by Iqela Events, the people who bring you amongst others, top events like the Slanghoek Triathlon.

Did the 2016 race live up to expectations? Just look at the smiles on the faces of the people in these photos and you will have your answer. Yes, It’s still a winner.

Wine Adventure Trail Run

It seems that the secret of the Dirtopia Trail Run Series is out. Over 600 runners took on the Wine Adventure Trail Run at the gorgeous Warwick Wine Estate, and the wait list for entries was a mile long.Gourmet burgers at the finish, and quality wine at the water stops were just a couple of the ‘little extras’ laid on by Warwick.

These images capture the fun of the event and the beauty of Stellenbosch, and hopefully will make you want to enter the next race on the 19th of July. I’d seriously advise anyone wanting to enter to do it online today, as in RIGHT NOW, because it IS going to sell out.. Go to www.dirtopia.co.za for more info.
