These are 10 pictures of the riders and riding at Fort William 2014 Down Hill mountain biking world championships. 
I didn’t really concentrate on the action shots, but I did get a few nice ones i think.
I particularly like the one of the riders hiding from the wind in a disused gondola at the top of the mountain.

Picture I got today while photographing a Hawk in the stadium, i really like the circle the light is making on the seats and court. We got up at 5 to photograph this. More to come

Day 5 Working at Wimbledon

Well day 5 nothing much happened, it was a very slow start to the day as the photographers didn’t even get any photos to us until 12:30 so we had a lot of sitting around waiting. so during that time I spent it looking at very important mounting biking material. 

I also managed to get out for another quick shoot. Got a few pictures that are good so I think I’m getting the hang of shooting tennis.

we also didn’t finish editing images until 10:30pm it was quite late but never mind thats what i expect from it now so I’m getting used to it. 

Day 4 Working at Wimbledon

After the past days of starting work at 8am and finishing at sometimes 10pm, I found it hard to get up this morning, I’m feeling pretty tired, but I’m still finding it fun.

I managed to get out again to photograph some more stuff. Although I didn’t really know my way around, and still don’t to be honest, so I got lost. But I managed to find my way back eventually. After that adventure I kind of know my way around on the service, but in the dungeons under wimbledon I still have know idea, its like the labyrinth that the minotaur should be hiding in.

Anyway after trying to get some tight crop shots today of the players, I now have a greater appreciation for the photographers. They must really know what there doing to get so many shots the ball in them with the face of he player. 

Day 3 Working at Wimbledon

Day 3 I managed to get out and take some photos, once in the morning where I went onto centre court and managed to get a shot of the almost dead seating area, although there were a few groups of people in it so didn’t turn out to good. but the second time i went out I got a greet photo of a tennis player serving through the rows of crowd. I am really happy with this photo.

I also tried to get the action shots the pros seem to get so easily, with the ball, racket and body all in frame with a tight crop. its so much harder than I though, but then I suppose they have had many years of shooting at Wimbledon also if I had a body that could keep up with the high iso’s then I could get the pictures a bit sharper, because you need about 1/8000th sec to freeze the ball properly.

Day 2 Working at Wimbledon

So day 2, today went a lot smoother than yesterday and I managed to process over 125 pictures much better than my 85 yesterday. I also managed to get into a better routine of cropping.

I am starting to get to know a few of the player faces. Although its quite hard distinguish them when they are pulling faces of concentration. they can all look very similar especially when they both have a similar hair style have the same figure and same rackets.

I still haven’t had a chance to get outside to photograph the matches, but apparently the photo load lowers a bit toward the end of wimbledon, so I should get a bit of time to photograph around the grounds then.
