The London marathon was my latest assignment for MarathonFoto; and the 5th time covering the event.
It was great to work again at this event, it really is one of the highlights of the year. I was positioned on the Embankment this year, at the 40km mark - so some very tired people went past me. But the rain held off for most of the day and the new sponsors Virgin did a great job helping the organisers
I love working at the London Marathon – the atmosphere is fantastic and the mix of professional athletes, fun runners and celebs is totally unique.
If you need help with the photography at a sports event please don't hesitate to get in touch. Even if your event is miles from Merseyside, I can help with a competitive quote.
