Run Around the City – Run Norwich

Sunday 6th August Norwich was awash with thousands of runners, as people of all abilities took to the atmospheric streets of one of Britain’s finest cities.

With the sun beating down, the runners got started by ex Norwich City legend Grant Holt from the open top bus on Gentlemans Walk.
Smiles were definitely the order of the day, as runners completed the 10k course, coming across the line to cheers of the huge crowd.
A thoroughly great day and a pleasure to photograph.

The Colour 5k in Norfolk

Ever wondered what it would be like to be part of a ‘colour run’…?
Well, last Saturday I had the pleasure of photographing competitors at the Colour 5k in the wonderful ground of Hoveton Hall Estate – what a complete blast that was…

Photographer covered in paint, camera covered in paint and lens dusted with colourful cornflower – thank goodness for clingfilm and tape!

The 2017 Steeplechase Derby

The 2017 Steeplechase Derby was held in Norfolk on Saturday amidst sublime summer weather… once the warm up was through, the race started and competitors took to the jumps, running through water, over logs, through mud and up hills…

Well done to everyone who took part… I like to think I joined in the fun, standing in a dyke in my walking boots and then running alongside the course with my camera backpack to get ahead of the competitors… who ever said being a photographer was easy! – good fun though!

Embracing Sports | Active Norfolk UEA Festival

The sporting theme continued last week as I visited the Start track festival at the UEA sportspark, shooting images for the organisers.

Thankfully I picked the right day, blessed with a mix of cloud and sunshine, at times it actually felt like Spring!

Spending the afternoon with the kids and the level two coaches I watched them learn no end of new skills, culminating in a rather competitive sports day! Excellent fun
