Vancouver 2010 Olympics

Short Track Speed Skating – Women’s & Men’s

During the Vancouver 2010 Olympics I received an amazing opportunity to watch a Short Track Speed Skating event. I brought my camera, with 105mm lens and tucked myself along side the photographer’s section. If you know me you know I rarely shoot people, let alone sports. But there was something magical about the athletes, their energy, their colours against the background, that was exciting.

Recently, I have been experimenting with slow shutter speeds shooting landscapes from a moving vehicle, sometimes travelling at highway speeds. The athletes provided a similar challenge, requiring me to pan my camera as they rounded the corners at break neck speeds. I love the results that reveal a painterly, artistic portrayal of their amazing athletic abilities.
