Qld State Champs

I have spent this weekend shooting the Queensland Open & Under 18 Track & Field State Championships held at the QSAC.

Queensland AthleticsI was lucky enough to be granted photographic accreditation for the event, and the whole weekend was a huge learning curve. I have taken around 1000 images for the 2 days of competition and will start the task of processing them tomorrow once I get my laptop working again. Its decided to have a few power issues this weekend.

Any athletes wishing to get digital copies of the images please contact me via the contacts page and supply me with their race number. I will upload a bunch of images on my flickr account and display more images here soon.

Here is one image of Patrick Johnson in his heat for the 100 meters.  He finished the days final in 2nd place to Matt Davies who recorded a time of 10.45sec to Johnson’s 10.47sec. I quite like the effect the rain had in this image.
