I’ve always been keen on sport, having played cricket and squash for many years and since taking up photography I’ve wanted to combine the two. I have photographed quite a few local sports so far but really want to photograph at a higher level within the various disciplines. This year I was fortunate enough to be able to shoot an athletics event for the first time over a weekend in late May. The events on display were the men’s decathlon and women’s heptathlon at both full age and under 23s so there was lots of action to follow. I had a particular interest in the hurdles, high jump and long jump from a photographic perspective, some of the images are shown below, many more are here >> Sport – Athletics.
