Summer Shoot on the Norfolk Broads

With the wet and cold weather firmly set in for Winter,  it seems suitable to look back a few months on some of my shoots on the Norfolk Broads, in particular three wonderful days on the Northern & Southern Broads, photographing cyclists, holidaymakers, day trippers, horse riders and locals, all of whom made the summer so much fun for me & my camera gear!

Southwold Roubaix Sportive – Images Live

A selection of rather atmospheric images from the inaugural Roubaix Sportive in Southwold on Sunday.

Rain, mud and mist were the order of the day – all credit to everyone who took part in the event – you hardy lot!

Images from the Pedal Revolution Southwold Roubaix Sportive are now available to view & purchase online – either visit the Southwold Sportive website (where you booked via) or click on  http://julianclaxton.jalbum.net/

Cycle Shoot in Top Local Bike Chain

Always a pleasure to pop along to a shoot in a cycle related location!
A couple of weeks ago I visited Pedal Revolution in their Norwich store to update some of their imagery to keep in touch with their new branding.

It was good fun and I managed to leave the store without a new bike purchase! I was somewhat impressed with my resolve!

A piece of cake | Suffolk cycling

 

In this months Suffolk magazine my latest cycling ride takes in the wonderful countryside of West Suffolk – starting in Ickworth, I really enjoyed the 30 odd mile cycle ride through some wonderfully quiet and quaint lanes. A nice coffee and cake at the new cycle cafe Magila Rosa and a few testing hills to burn that cake off!

All rather enjoyable and fabulous way to write a new feature

Yesterday saw the 2nd Norfolk Cycle Show.

Building on the success of the first event in 2013, the orgnaisers packed a day full of amazing stands, great people and some wonderful guest speakers!

Graeme Obree

A particular favorite of mine was Graeme Obree… who I have long admired and has been somewhat of a hero of mine since I took up cycling many years ago. A hugely passionate person who is probably one of the nicest people I have had the pleasure of meeting and photographing.
