In the past I have mentioned that I have rules, I don’t have very many but there are a few that are really important. Perhaps the best known rule is that You have to shoot the cute girls! I mean, who wants to look at old guys like me?
A more complete explanation is that if you shoot the best looking athletes, with the best form, your photos will be most appealing.
Finding a group to shoot is easy in Triathlon and especially around the time of the Women’s Athlete Briefing. Greg Welch of Ironman fame and with Oakley was on hand to distribute Sunnies with frames in team colors for the girls that sponsored by Oakley.
Hanging out with Welchy is like a magnet for attracting the athletes. I just had to stand there and shoot. Here are a few relaxed and very happy snaps from the day.
The man of the day – Greg Welch, Ironman World Champion!
Team Australia Erin Densham, Emma Moffatt and Emma Jackson.
Canada’s Paula Findlay.
Sarah Groff with the huge Triathlon Grandstand in the background.
Oakley’s in team colors with the commemorative London cases.
Canada’s Kathy Tremblay.
And of course, my friend Sweden’s Lisa Norden.
More soon – off to the Olympic Park again today!
Cheers from London!
