I love all the Torch Relay pictures. It's going to pass through Lewisham and Catford on Monday morning (external link), when my teacher wife and my daughter will conveniently and at last be done with school.

I think you guys have convinced me to get up early to go see it. :)

How long in advance did you get there?

Wendy

I've got tickets to the Men's Sabre rounds and quarter finals. I don't think I've ever seen sabre, so it will be something new. :cool:

That sounds like the same PDF document they sent me and which I linked in my message: http://www.london2012.​com …teditemslists_N​eutral.pdf (external link)

It also mentions that:

Now what this says to me is that, with a printed version of these rules, I should be OK. There is nothing about not bringing a DSLR. But it's annoying to have to take a gamble with this kind of opportunity...

I'm not sure I would risk a monopod though as it's specifically listed.

Wendy

Yes, sorry. That's the same one I was referring to. My reading comprehension isn't that great :)

Seems like the 70-200's are ok then.

Sabre is fun to watch, lots (LOTS!) of shouting. It's the fastest of the 3 weapons, I often don't have a clue what's happening. Nor do the judges, so they seem to award points based on who shouts the loudest after landing a hit. You'll see :)

Nice shot Mike :)

Nice photo Mike - I see you were up the other end of Sandwich, whereas I was perched 50 ft from my desk at the Pfizer site. Work computer doesn't have photoshop so I'm going to have to process these later tonight.

Thanks, Wendy - we were there about 30 minutes early although 10 minutes would have been ok. There were people handing out free stuff (Coca Cola merchandise) and it was a bit of a carnival atmosphere which was fun.

The Coke bus must have run out as they gave us diddly squat on our end :) You could also spot that Lloyds TSB is government owned as it was getting around in a 40 year old leyland bus as opposed to the 12 plate buses of the other companies :D

Afternoon all, checking in on the new thread.

That image of the cat with tie is cracking, almost as if he/she's adopted the pose specifically!

A couple of new updates from me, been really busy lately (which is great!)...

Not sure if anyone remembers, but a little while ago I photographed Evanta's "Aston Martin DB4/BD7 GT Zagato Concept'. Their next car is almost finished and I headed to the paint booth for a sneak preview:

It's an Aston Martin DBR1 replica with V8 engine painted in Californian Sage Green. As close to the original car as i'll ever get!

Next up is another "I Am..." Series feature. He's Britain's leading Table Tennis medallist of all time at the Commonwealth games and a Team GB Olympian, Andrew Baggaley is the next feature.

Thanks for looking all, comments welcome! :-)

Edit: If anyone prefers 500PX, just uploaded them there but have no idea how to directly link yet...

A friend of mine desperately needs to re-home her cat, she was lead to believe it was for her to move I to the new house but was told yesterday it couldn't happen, they are moving in tomorrow!!

She is called Gizmo, neutered, chipped and fully upto date with her vaccinations.. Can anyone here help? Thanks..

Awesome shots as always Richard, love the perspective on the table tennis shot especially.

Would love to know how you go about contacting these athletes to arrange the shoots. Do you have an agency you work through or do you find their details and contact them directly?

All of the photoshoots have been arranged directly with myself and the person in question. Would love to be affiliated with an agency one day for larger commissions but i'm not sure how easy it is to get representation :)

"I Am..." Series is a personal project and all the shoots are free in return for their time/cooperation. I have some ideas of where to go with the series once it's a bit more substantial, fingers crossed and watch this space :D:lol:

I think it depends on where you are and if there are going to be any media about as to how much stuff Coke and Samsung hand out as in Folkestone town center lots was handed out nothing up my road but where the flame was handed over there was more stuff handed out. I liked the Lloyd's bus much more style than the Coke and Samsung vehicles, and quieter.
