It's what we do, right?

Strive to be the best we can. Keep reaching for those stars. Never standing still.

From tomorrow (weather permitting) I will join the Media at the IAAF World Indoor Athletics Championships at Arena Birmingham. Following a thoroughly enjoyable time at the British Indoor Athletic Championships, I was successful with my application for accreditation to 'The Worlds'

Rubbing shoulders with the likes of Mark Shearman MBE, Tom Smeeth and Adrian Royle was only going to be a positive for me. Learning from experienced sports photographers about settings and positioning was invaluable. Hopefully I will be able to put what I have learned into practice and move on with my photography.

There will be over 75 photographers in Birmingham for the championships and I will be trying my best to get some great shots. I have invested in a mini tripod and two Pocket Wizard wireless shutter release gizmos. Can't wait to give them a try. Better make sure I register the remotes and if I get authorization, place my camera no less than 1.5 hours before the event I want to capture.

Getting on to the infield will be difficult as there are agency photographers and other country photographers who do take priority. I will put my name down for one of the 'floating' infield bibs, however, and do my utmost when on there. Tomorrow sees the opening ceremony getting us off to a good start followed by the 2 high jump competitions and the Women's 3000m

I am ready for the challenge!
