I have had a very exciting past couple of weeks with lots of new shoots to add here once I’ve finished/begun the feat of trawling through them.
However one thing I have polished up, hot off the press is this years London Classic cycle ride in aid of The Evelina Childrens Hospital
This is my third year photographing the event and it just gets bigger and better every time, particularly as this time I had my own personal scooter chauffeur called Stan to take me around the route. After a reserved start of holding on tightly, I ended up with my camera out, one handed, shooting the cyclists as we passed them. I felt like Tom Cruise doing all my own stunts…except I had a camera and not a gun.
Anyway, the small yet prolific team behind this years event truly outdid themselves, and all comments from riders were positive. I’m really proud to play a small part in it and it’s for a great cause which you can still donate too for the next couple of months.
Shots from the ride can be seen here and the full collection of riders portraits are here
