Best Photography From an Event – Award – NACE 2012
We are thrill to be given the “Best Photography from an Event” from Triangle NACE last night for the 2011 Beach to Battleship Triathlon. PPD & Setup Events put on a great race & we happy to be invited to photograph it.
The Ironman distance was at first light of the sunrise. That meant we were out in the fog, light rain and darkness at 0’dark hour, a little earlier than when I’m usually loaded with all my camera gear. Athletes & their support people were pumped and it was lots of fun to photograph with the challenging lighting conditions.
The start locations, transition points, sponsor aid stations & athlete portraits were done the day before the race. On race day it was Iron Distance Start before dawn, then 1/2 Iron start, T1 (transition 1 from swim to bike), Sponsor Aid Station, T2 (bike to run) & then Finishers.
