I recently shot with Emily to create some strong striking sport and fitness images. Emily is a sprinter, ballroom dancer and personal trainer with an incredible physique and was happy to jump around for an hour to get the right poses, a great model and someone I will definitely be working with again.

It started on a very very cold 6am February Sunday morning in Brighton. As the sun rose it made for a beautiful background for the Steve Ovett statue on the sea front.
During the Brighton event I met and photographed some amazing people and characters. I was continually amazed how people could run 13 miles, when most people were still in bed on an early Sunday morning, in some of the crazy outfits and costumes.
And they're off...
Next up was the Bath Half (that's apparently what you are meant to call it) with a slightly later start but with a chance of rain!
Part of my brief was to capture images of runners who were blogging about the event, showing their pre race routine, warm up and stretching. I have since learnt that most runners warm up before a half marathon by running!
Even Radio 1 DJ Greg James ran it with a giant boob strapped to his back for CoppaFeel.
Next up was North London with the inspirational @Mo_Farah warming up the crowd and starting the race.
The Reading half marathon ended up being a hot and sunny finishing line in the Madejski stadium, but that didn't stop two guys running it in a camel outfit!
Liverpool was a totally different experience, it rained and rained and rained!
Well what can I say about Rob Young, he is an amazing man who is attempting to run a marathon a day for a year while raising money and awareness for the NSPCC, Dreams Come True and Great Ormond Street Hospital.
I'm very lucky and humbled to have worked with Rob to produce some striking images for his Press and PR campaign.
