Finally I have got around to posting images from what I can only describe as one of the most amazing experiences of my life so far! As soon as London was successful in the bid to host the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic games, I knew I wanted to photograph as many of the events as possible and experience sport at the highest level.
Unfortunately accreditation was not an option so instead I secured as many tickets as I possibly could, and with camera in hand, set about documenting both the Olympics and Paralympics from a spectators point of view. I was lucky to secure tickets to a wide range of sports, but for me my aim was to document the games in a non-sporting way, trying to capture the emotion and feel of each sport and venue as a whole. It was not about using the biggest lens I had available, but instead I tried to document the games as I saw them – telling a story of what for me was the most amazing Olympic and Paralympic games experience.
So here are my highlights from what was for me, a fantastic Summer of sport…
Enjoying my first Olympic and Paralympic Games experience!
The Olympic Games – 27th July – 12th August
