The Pace Setter
I was recently fortunate to be invited to photograph 'The Pace Setter' event organised by On Your Marks Events. The Pace Setter is a 5km and 8km Canicross, Bikejor & Scooterjor event set amongst the picturesque Fineshade Woods near Corby in Northamptonshire.
The weather on the day started quite dull and overcast but after a quick scout around we managed to identify a few locations where the grey skys wouldn't overly dominate the images and we could use the trees and foliage as backgrounds.
The first series of photographs were taken on a short downhill stretch just after the start where many of the dogs (and owners) were captured in full flight. Also managed to capture some very nice unposed portraits throughout the course of the day - one of my personal favourites shown above.
Quite a difficult subject to photograph with dogs and owners not always following a predictable path, but overall an enjoyable days shoot with some great results. The Pace Setter Gallery
