We’ve been rather busy working on a project we quite enjoy – sports portraiture, and we had the pleasure of photographing the Great British Bobsleigh team 2014. This is the first sneak preview before the Winter Olympics in Sochi Russia in February.
We worked with the GB team in 2012, but as uniforms changed, and members finally picked out to represent Great Britain – we were contacted to work with them on some dramatic imaging for them to use for the Winter Olympics.
We had the pleasure of photographing Great British Bobsleigh athlete Bruce Tasker, John Jackson “Jacko”, Joel Fearon, and Stuart Benson.
With careful planning – the whole shoot lasted 13 hours – all completed in our fantastic drive
in, Darley Abbey photographic studios, shot by Simon Mackney. Digital work was then used by Simon and the Mackney team to “finish” these stunning shots that are now proudly on our website and used by GB Bobsleigh team for their promotional material.
