Durbanville Triathlon 2015

Durbanville Triathlon 2015

The Durbanville Triathlon is traditionally the season ending tri in the Western Cape. Mother nature played along with perfect wind-free and cool conditions, and the event proved to be a fitting finale to the season.

Enjoy the photos

This was shot from just above the surf line beyond what is known as Schoenmakerskop. I wanted to give some idea of how rugged the shoreline is along Marine Drive. Just 7 km later, riders would be riding through the bustling metropolis of Port Elizabeth

Standard Bank IRONMAN African Championship.

The 2015 edition of the Standard Bank IRONMAN African Championship was held, as usual, at Nelson Mandela Bay in Port Elizabeth in the Eastern Cape of South Africa.
This year the event pulled more pro racers from around the world than any other IRONMAN event except the world champs in Kona. T

That’s a tesament to the quality of the race and the people behind it.

Prime Jailbreak 2014

Now in its 9th year, the Prime Cleaning Services Jailbreak Triathlon is an annual event held at the Brandvlei Correctional Services facility at Rawsonville in the Western Cape.

Sporting a long distance event (2.2km swim/88km bike/22km run) and a shorter minimum security’ version (1.1km swim/44km bike/11km run), the event has the unique distinction of being the only Triathlon in Africa (and probably anywhere else in the world) to be held on a working day. It is known as the the Tri on a Fri, and has a very unique holiday atmosphere. Enjoy the photos.

Africa 3 Hour Endurance Motor Race

Killarney International Motor Race track in Cape Town hosted the  Africa 3 Hour endurance race. It’s not something that I would normally go and shoot, but it looked like fun and I had a free day. There is nothing like practising new crafts on a new subject, and with no one paying for the images I could afford to be a bit mad and not worry about delivering to a brief.

More images from the race are available on my Facebook page.  Click Here To See Them

FIRST ASCENT Mast Challenge

Athletes compete in the FIRST ASCENT Mast Challenge held at Tokai, near Cape Town in the Western Cape of South Africa on 10 May 2014

It’s always a pleasure to shoot for FIRST ASCENT. The brand just ‘vibes’ with me, and everyone associated with the brand is a whole lot of fun. So it was an absolute pleasure getting out of bed at 4:00am to shoot the FIRST ASCENT Mast Challenge at Tokai. Here are some photos of the event.

ITU Discovery World Triathlon Series Cape Town

When you are as big a fan of triathlon as I am, then you’ll know, when the ITU World triathlon Series rolls into my home town of Cape Town it is a major deal. I was lucky enough to be asked to photograph the event for the event organisers. These are just a sample of some of the images from the day.
