Photoshoot with triathletes Martina and John


 

For many people triathlon simply means a race that combines 3 disciplines — swimming, cycling and running. Did you know that, apart from age categories, there are several official types of races available where the disciplines vary in distances? Few weeks ago I had an opportunity to create promotional photos for Martina and John, two talented and ambitious athletes based in Great Britain. They both enter international competitions worldwide, representing their countries.

The basic idea for the session was to create an individual photo for each person. To keep it uniform, we went for the same pose and the same lighting. And to elevate the result a bit, I added a flag to the background according to their nationalities. At the end, as Martina and John are a couple, they asked me for one shot together for a family album.

In few days, on Saturday July 21, they will both enter a Standard Distance Triathlon European Championships in Age Group, which takes place in Tartu, Estonia. This will be a classic Olympic triathlon (1500 m swimming, 40 km cycling and 10 km running). Several weeks later, on Saturday August 11, they will enter a Sprint Distance Triathlon European Championships in Age Group, which takes place in Glasgow, Scotland. In contrast to the precedent race, this will be a sprint triathlon with reduced distances (750 m swimming, 20 km cycling and 5 km running).

They are both looking forward to these upcoming events. Let's cross fingers together and wish them all the success!
