Today I found out that all cyclists have a crash face. Here is Bradley Wiggins…

Bradley Wiggins Crash Face

 

It’s quite surreal having a cyclist crash right in front of you, never mind a Tour de France winner, National Road Race Champion, multiple Olympic gold medalist and mod legend! I didn’t know weather to keep shooting or try and help the old boy up. The large metal barriers in my way and the fact he was inside the final 3km (and so would get the same time as the finishers) and thankfully the lack of any injury meant I could keep shooting as he soon clambered back on his bike.

Having over cooked the penultimate bend leading out his team mates on the first stage of the 2012 Tour of Britain and taking a bit of a tumble, he was soon back on his feet. Luckily there didn’t appear to be too much damage and Brad was soon off on his way again to ride another day. Just goes to show he’s not afraid to take some risks and make sacrifices for his team mates….nice to see in a champion.

Safe journey and good luck to you and the rest of your team Mr Wiggins!

Every Photo Tells a Pictory

I recently got a photograph published over at Pictory. If you haven’t heard of it Pictory is an online showcase for photographers. The site asks for submissions based on a particular theme, the idea being that all the photographs selected tell their particular take on a common story or theme through one photograph and a [...]

The Importance of Lighting In Photography

Light is everything in photography. The job of a photographer is to capture light into an still image. As photographers all the time we spend fiddling with white balance, thinking about exposure, tone, contrast is basically all about trying to best capture the light we see that reflects back off our subject. Looking back over [...]

It is only one of two stations left that has an island platform that serves the lines running in both directions, the other being it’s neighbor Clapham North. In addition to its shared [...]

A Lomo LCA Lession

I recently attended a photography course with the exceptionally talented Mr Kevin Meredith aka lomokev of flickr fame. The aim of the course was to better learn what it takes to take a good photograph. While I know (or like to think i know!) much of the standard photography  theory seen in many books (the [...]
