A new season is about to begin

Wow it has been a whole year since I last blogged, I am a bad bad boy!! This season I will blog from each race I cover or training session.
With the World Cup starting in just 5 days I have already been up on a glacier in Austria to get some practice, both on skis and taking photos!!
I was quite lucky in the fact that members of the British ski team were training so I not only got to catch up with the guys and girls, but also managed to get some ok stock action shots just in case the British newspapers require them

With a new season comes new challenges, which races do I cover, logistics finding out who the new racers are stuff like that. For the main part of the season I will probably concentrate on the women's races because Lindsey Vonn (USA) is still big news, and my American clients are always after new pictures. Also this season I hope to be submitting articles into a race magazine about things I see or do on the tour, not in a paparazzi way though.. My first article will be about a young Russian skier I met recently who at the age of 17 was a national champion, but by the age of 20 is consigned to training with the childrens team after 2 seasons off due to horrific injuries.

Some blatant self promotion coming up!!

Also for this season some of the images can be made available to purchase as a print, either on paper or canvas. All images can be found at and if you see a photo you like email me through the website and I will see if that image can be printed (image rights dependant)
