Event photography at the Helsinki city run

Published on Fri May 15, 2009 by

I worked again for Marathonfoto last weekend, covering the Helsinki city run. The event started and finished from the 1952 Olympic Stadium and although the weather conditions were poor for photography - heavy rain - I also undertook PR / public relations photography before the race for the organisers. Later I moved positions and was located on the finish-line for the athletes coming in.

Here are some photographs from around the city when it stopped raining for a few minutes. Interesting place to visit but like everywhere else in Scandinavia very expensive.

Finding leaf skeletons in the woods out and about is fairly rare. I have a couple but thought I'd have a go and making some of my own. Read more...

"I have employed David for conferences, presentations, social engagements, marketing materials, open days, portrait shots, official document signings amongst many others. David has always been amenable to our sometimes short notice and has delivered our photos in a quick time frame as agreed and sometimes much quicker depending on our needs. He has always been very helpful, he follows and delivers on the brief and is able to give additional value to jobs with minimal briefs. I am more than happy to recommend David and he will no doubt deliver the same quality he provides us."
