Penshurst Point to Point

May 21, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

I've been fortunate throughout my career to photograph many different sporting events and a few weekends ago I had my first shoot at a Point to Point. I went to the Penshurst Point to Point in Kent, firstly as it had a great reputation but also as is very near my home.

It was a grey, murky day, but that did mean that I didn't have to worry about the Sun's direction. This was great as it allowed me almost total flexibility on my shooting location and direction. The course was generally marked out with white plastic fencing but in places just rope, this allowed the public and photographer's to get very close. By the main straight this proved to be a problem as everyone was so close it was difficult for a clear view, but around the back of the course, I had huge sections of fence to myself and with a great view of a jump.

I always feel the closer to the action a photographer can get then the better the resulting photographs, at this Point to Point the access was fantastic so it could produce some very exciting and dramatic sporting images. Here are a selection of my highlights.
