The Down Tow Up Flow 1/2 Marathon is an annual event that takes place in the UK in Windsor. This was the first time I’d been to it as my other half Ceryl and her best friend Holly were also running in it to raise money for charity too.
It was interesting to shoot such a prestigious event, from both the start, middle and end positions and it’s really honourable what these runners put themselves through in order to raise money for important causes they believe in.
Holly clocked in at an impressive 1:51 and Ceryl wasn’t far behind at 2:04.
Here are some of my favourites from the day. For the photographers out there, these were shot with my Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8 VR II lens on my Nikon D700.
I shot backstage in the Montgomery Ellis Gifting Lounge at T4 on the Beach 2010 in Weston-Super-Mare. It was an all-day event and was jam-packed with celebrities and full of energy – especially when Jedward turned up and they definitely weren’t camera shy!
I shot many celebrities on the day including the likes of JLS, Dizzee Rascal, Alexandra Burke, Jedward, The Saturdays, Tinchy Stryder, N-Dubz, Gok Wan, Alesha Dixon, Example, Paloma Faith. Louie Spence, Diana Vickers & Pixie Lott to name a few!
Here’s a few I grabbed on the day.
