I’ve posted here before about some of the local newspaper coverage that my photos have made it into, and also about Sharon and I when we were ‘featured’ in Runners World magazine in the January 2008 issue.
Well, after standing for hours in the pouring rain this past Monday taking photos at the London 10,000 race the photos that I took were tracked down on the internet by the editors at Athletics Weekly who contacted me (yup, I didn’t go to them), asking if they could use some in the 29 May edition that was about to go to press. I was more than happy to let them use some of the photos and I’m delighted to say that in the current issue of Athletics Weekly there’s no less than eight of my photos featured in their report of the race (which is one of the main articles this week - it’s advertised on the front cover). I’m really pleased that my little photography hobby is getting some more recognition and I don’t feel at all bad about getting soaked through on Monday!
On the back of this I sent a couple of photos to the local newspaper (Richmond & Twickenham Times) which got included in their report of the race, both in the physical newspaper and on their website.
