National 100k and 50k Championships for tzruns

As most of you know I am a runner and Sue has also started running and one of the people that we met through our running was Ian Berry from tzruns.com who are well known for there amazing races the most famous being the Kent Roadrunner which takes place the last weekend in May each year and I am fortunate enough to have one of the very limited places available this year. I spoke to Ian recently because he was hosting the amazing National 100k and 50k races down at the Cyclopark in Kent the same venue as the Kent Road Runner Marathon and he said he was looking for volunteers for the day and he asked Sue and I if we could photograph the event and of course we agreed, I mean how could we refuse to photograph the UK’s finest runners at this superb venue for such an awesome client, so that was it we were now photographing the Nationals for the awesome tzruns.

We started our day at 6am simply because the races start at 8am and we wanted to get everything sorted before the teams arrived to setup. Once we were ready they teams and individual runners started arriving and we started shooting team photos just before the 100k race got underway.  Once the 100k race started we used our car as a pace/photo car and we got some amazing photos from the car of the first lap from very close distance. We then chose several spots for the next few hours to pick off some great photos. At 11am the 50k race started and although we could not use the car because the runners shared the track we did cover the start which again was fun before resuming our position out on the track. It was nothing short of awesome watching these runners from the likes of Steve Way who runs for England and was hoping for a record right through to the runners who took the full 12 hours to get around the 48 laps every single one of them was awesome.   The runners all did so well and records galore were broken, I will let you read all about that over at the tzruns website and the nationals website but I am pleased and very proud to say that My Steve Way won the race as well as an awesome british record too.

Sports photography by Julian Porter

Last week was my local Parkruns 1 year anniversary and I volunteered to photograph it again, I often run the Parkruns but if I have a wedding its easier to shoot than run also if I have a race the next day I often miss the parkrun.   Sue and I arrived at about 08:30 for a 9am start and we did a few shots of the key members and I chatted to a few running friends,  just before the start they did a presentation which was nice and I also met this couple in the first photo who are over here from Australia on holiday and decided to run,  Thats one of the amazing things about parkrun, you register once and can run the 5k route all over the world in fact I am going to run 2 in America in january and I am real excited about it.

Once the race started it was the usual mix or runners but an amazing 513 turned out for this special event including a few of our clients,  Doug, Carly and Christopher are all runners and wedding clients as well as our Baby jp client Lorraine so it felt pretty special to us.  The runners range from 16 minute finishers through to 48 minute finishers so there was plenty to keep me busy.

After the race we all had a picnic in the common and it was just perfect, lovely people and lovely weather.

Corporate days @ Silverstone

We were recently asked to photograph a fun day at Silverstone race track by one of our wedding and newborn clients Tom and although I am used to a slower pace of life 🙂  we took the opportunity to have some fun and headed up to Silverstone on a beautiful late April day where Tom and his mates were preparing their race bikes for a fun day around the track along with hundreds of other bikers.

We were lucky because we were the photographers to have lots of trackside access so were able to get some amazing photos of the boys clocking up some seriously fast laps,  we chose several locations starting at the bottom of the pit straight and then the top of the pit straight to catch them on the bend but then chose a spot near the Silverstone Bridge corner which was a lot of fun and we got to see both thrill’s and spills but thankfully everyone was ok.

Sue and I do all sorts of sports photography as you are probably aware I am a runner and well into my fitness and have my own fitness blog here but we also do cycling and motor racing to name a few and if you need any sports photography wether its for your club or a corporate fun event please let us know and we will work out a favourable quote.
