Pictures tell stories…

I love what I do! I really do.

To work in a race environment and capture the action in words or audio is a real pleasure. I have played with video and although I enjoy the medium, I do prefer a ‘still’ image. It is a moment captured.

These two images really capture everything that combines to make a great image.

Meghan Hicks on the first stage of the 2013 Marathon des Sables (which she went on to win) running up a dune on the first day. I captured the image by running alongside her.

I have often been asked HOW? I manage to capture images that make the viewer feel like they are in the moment… well here is how.

  1. Great photos Ian you manage to capture the real essence of each type of run. From a personal note thanks so much for the Talk Ultra podcast, it’s been truly enlightening, inspiring and educational for me. So much so that I’m doing a 24 hour run on the Portrush parkrun course in June. I may have found a new vocation in life. Thanks so much.
