Todays shoot was somewhat different… visited Tough Viking 2015. Don’t try this at home… 😉

Fantastic Weekend at Ironman Kalmar 2015!!

A fantastic weekend in Kalmar have just come to an end. What a terrific arrangement, fantastic audience and 2700 awesome athletes!

The first part, the Swimming was quite a challenge in the tough headwind a (to be in Kalmar) large waves. It was even so tough so that a few athletes have to surrender early in the swim. See for yourself in the swimming pictures, imagine yourself to swim in this…

Upcoming event: Photography at Ironman kalmar, 15/8


I have just received accreditation for photo access to Ironman the 15/8 in Kalmar which enables some nice shooting possibilities.

Possibility to get free profile picture(s): If you or any of your friends will participate in the competition and if you want some nice profile pictures from the Ironman environment you may ask them to contact me for a ad-hoc shoot if we find it possible.

Also, if you know of any other interest of pictures to be taken either at Ironman or any other similar event, you are of course also welcome to contact me. 🙂

Early morning start with Stockholm Ultra Marathon and then Kite Surfing

The wakeup call got off at 04:05… crazy? Yes, but those ultra marathon runners – they start early! Loaded the car with cameras, fresh batteries, emptied memory cards and some sandwiches, coffee for a day beside the race track. I also took the opportunity to try out some new equipment and to prepare for next weekend in Kalmar – that was good.

Wrapping up around lunch time with a short break. Then headed south to Dalarö where I was to shoot some Kite Surfers. Unfortunately the wind wasn’t too good, “only” ~6m/s. Being a cyclist I thought that was quite more than enough. When I arrived many surfers were in the water trying to get wind into the kite. Björn at Kiteboardcenter guided me about what is was all about.

Eventually the wind came and we got at least some basic shots. I will have to come back sometime later when the wind is at least twice the speed. I am glad I was the one handling the camera and not the one standing on the surfboard. 🙂
