The warm and fantastic conditions at the David Weir Leisure Centre in Carshalton are testament to that. There were some outstanding performances by the young athletes from the local Surrey and South London area - all of them 19 or younger.
My main aim for the day was to capture images for Sutton and District AC, however, such was the variety of events that I ended up snapping away quite regularly.
On the track we had everything from 100m up to 1500m. Wheelchair athletes were also on show and the races were competitive and exciting. How refreshing to be a part of an inclusive event ... David Weir and his coach, Jenny Archer, were there too. What a day!
NEW WEBSITE LAUNCH!
Spring has seen the launch of my new website too, with lots of galleries and a showcase for all my photographic work. You can see Olympic athletes alongside non-league footballers and landscapes alongside wildlife. There is something for everyone here.
Take a look at the Portrait pages too. I recently attended a course at the award-winning Hannah Couzens' Studio in St Albans. I was learning how to light models in the studio and came away with such a buzz! If you need a corporate headshot, or a newborn photoshoot, give me a call.
