Over the past year I developed a new liking towards sport photography. I covered a few games for Youth Football Scotland, a box night in the Beach Ballroom, and last Saturday – a boat race. Rowing proved to be least dynamic and diverse from all those sports, but nevertheless still amazing to watch, especially after observing emotional reactions of participants and viewers. You will be able to see for yourself, as I captured a moment when one of the winners was thrown to ice-cold water by her team mates, and she was later hugged by her ecstatic mum!
At first, a few words of explanation. I neglected this blog over last few months, as it wasn’t working properly. It seems that my posts were reaching only a very few of you who subscribed to mailing lists and notifications. I could not tell what what was the issue; we shall see if it resolved itself.
Meantime some of you might noticed, that I changed my name and url address with it. Hopefully it will not add to more technical glitches.
However the post was supposed to tell you the exciting news – I become a new Photo Editor of amazing student’s paper “The Gaudie”. The paper runs for almost 80 years (we are going to celebrate this anniversary next year), and I am really proud that I can become a part of that history 🙂
As a teaser, I am posting a snapshot of my picture on the front cover of the latest issue, and if you are interested enough you can follow a link below to the website.
