Triathlon and Ironman Images


Powerbar promo shoot with Jacqui and Ryan Giuliano. Usually I do this behind a minivan or a motorcycle but today I didn’t have an assistant and this had to be done. I placed two 650 Watt strobes high at the back of an SUV, camera was attached at the level of the riders with Manfrotto Magic Arm, firing was done with Pocketwizard remotes. Run a lan cable from the camera to the laptop on passenger seat for tethered shooting.

We also had a very limited time. I wanted to do the shot at 7-8 AM but both of the athletes were coming from San Diego at 1 AM, had to do their  workout early morning and come to the shoot around 10:30. And they had to go to a wedding after the shoot.

Ironman 70.3 Racine

This was probably my 6th or 7th visit to Ironman 70.3 Racine which includes 2 times competing. I had couple of athletes to cover and shoot specific images. Let me remind you, this is a race, even though they ask me to shoot specific photos there is no guarantee. Everything has to come together.

Here are some images from today’s race and I believe one day, one day I will be back on this course as a competitor.

ITU World Triathlon Chicago

Well, it’s been a while since I’ve done a triathlon. Ironman Wisconsin was the last race I did. Actually this goes for both racing and photographing. I’ve been busy with other stuff and it almost took a year to get back. Publications I’ve been working for interested in other events and finally ITU World Triathlon came to my own backyard. 

Short course always scares me. It’s fast, it’s complicated and it’s usually logistic nightmare. Once I saw the course for ITU World Triathlon I took a deep breath. It had multiple loops in a very short and manageable course. 

I needed to cover Elite Paratriathlon, Elite Women and Elite Men races. 

Weekend started with Dare2Tri Elite Paratriathlon early Saturday morning and ended with Elite Men on Sunday afternoon.

Here are some of my favorite images from the weekend-in no particular order!

Dare2Tri Paratriathlon Camp

Some random images from this week’s Dare2Tri Triathlon Camp held in Pleasant Prairie, Wisconsin.

Back in February I was contacted by Dare2Tri to photograph their new campaign for the season. They were planning to use the images for their web promotions, print advertising and some promo displayes at the ITU World Championships.

Challange was the timing. Camp was scheduled for 3 days and almost every minute of those 3 days were filled with activities and workouts leaving almost nothing for a seperate photoshoot with the athletes. On top of that the turnaround time needed to be fast to meet the deadline for the print campaign.
