TWA Hotel JFK

Simply stunning and as original as you might hope for; Eero Saarinen’s landmark 1962 TWA Flight Centre at JFK Airport has been restored and re imaged as a first-class hotel. At the centre of the hotel is Eero Saarinen’s iconic TWA Flight Centre. More than worthy of a visit when you have a few hours spare, or an overnight stay if flying in or out of JFK

Model Railways

Taken slightly out of my comfort zone and asked to photograph a friends model railway. This started as an exercise in focus stacking and ended with panning action and a small amount of backdrop/scene replacement. For more detail on the model installation which has an incredible level of detail including hand built stock check out http://instagram.com/stainmore_model_railway/…

Haringey Huskies finish their 2020 season as Champions of the NIHL Div 2 South. Mostly shot at their home in Alexandra Palace they have a growing and loyal following. This year despite still shooting through a net expect to see more and more panning shots typically between 1/40 and 1/60th sec, enough to freeze a portion of the action though still convey the speed and dynamic of this tough and fast sport.

Cambodia

Fortunate last summer to travel the waterways and roads through Cambodia and record life and culture as I see it. A wonderful country, friendly people a huge diversity of life.

For the technical, this was a one lens one body trip. All these photos were taken on the Olympus EM 11 and 12-100mm f4 zoom lens, difficult to fault the combination that has become a firm favourite with me.

Sail GP Cowes

SailGP, the fastest sail racing in the world, arrived in the UK to make its debut on European waters at Cowes on the Isle of Wight. These catamarans foil to gain speed and topped 50 knots for the first time at Cowes.

SailGP2 (1)

My assignment for UKSportspics to cover the penultimate round of this new sport on the Sunday.  Saturday’s racing being cancelled due to winds being just too strong.

Strong winds returned on the Sunday, with this and shooting from a rib made this  exciting and at times nigh on impossible to hold a frame. Short zooms fared best though much of the credit goes to the rib skipper and his ability to place us close to the action. Tom Slingsby and Australia won all three races and in the following round in Marseilles the championship. Look out for the return of SailGP in 2020.

Londons Invictus Games

PREPPED_invictuslogo2___Super_Portrait

I can only describe this as an almost missed opportunity. Shot back in September 2014, the first Invictus games before sports became my chosen genre. Walking through the Olympics Park fortunately with a 70-200 in my bag, I came across the Velodrome complex where the outdoor cycling event was taking place. A truly inspiring group of competitors with all measure of disabilities and physical challenges and yet attacking the track as any competitor would, you dont need to be interested in sports to want to watch or record that. The event had minimal security so shooting was pretty much from the track perimeter. Some great captures and possibly an influence on things to come…
