January 2019

So its starting. Coventry Dynamite showcase this week, really looking forwards to it, great start to 2019. Its also a Photo day there, for all the teams and individual athletes etc, excited to say the least !!

Then it’s off the following week to Worcester for the BCA’s Spring Spirit event, can’t wait to see all the teams in action there, seeing teams progress through the season is great, the confidence increasing and the hype from the teams as the muscle memory from routines gives them more time on faces, energy and enjoyment.

Blackpool and New Years 2019

So Blackpool was an experience. A lovely Venue and some lovely teams, giving it their all. Drive was long but overall i loved it. Images we as hard to get as normal. 10,000+ iso, no front lighting is hard to get the best from events, but you have to just deal with it and overcome whatever the issues are.

Next Outing for 2019 is on the 20th January in Coventry, really looking forwards to the day to see what we can achieve. Will update when its all official.

Cheer is a Sport, tumbling, gymnastics, stunting, precision, hrs and hrs to training, injuries and persistence, all go into a 2-3 min routine, great team sport.
Flexibility and athleticism
Getting set for that routine, fun, nerves, excitement
Waiting for awards x

RSD Showcase

Pam and Emma invited me to the showcase in Newport for RSD. What a great club, full of energy and support. The kids loved it the coaches loved it. There were in all 40 teams. So i shot around 11,000 images on the 16th December. At the same event I tore my thigh muscle(on very first picture) of all the luck, so stayed of course(pain killers up to eye balls) and just got on with providing the kids and parents something to remember. They all loved it. I was glad i stayed on and not took self to hospital, saved that for the monday 🙂

Just a selection below of the thousands of images done on the sunday x i loved every Minuit no matter the pain, which i forgot about as i enjoyed the day myself too, very much so. Look forwards to shooting the teams again in the future.

People ask me sometimes, why do you love this? Simple i just do, be that invited to attend by a club or organisation or on my own time, i simply enjoy creating images people love.
