Endurance Photography – Euston Park Endurance

By julietlemon August 10 2017 - 11.58 AM

Over the years, sports photography has been quite a large part of my​ business ​repertoire.  I’ve been fortunate enough to photograph world​-​class athletes and a multitude of sports and disciplines.​ ​ These​ have included Formula 1,​ ​Premier​ League​ football, boxing, cycling, kickboxing, world champion windsurfers, County cricket and Olympic skiers.

The ​realm​ of Endurance Photography is certainly no​t​ new to me.  ​I​n the motorsports ​arena​ I ​have ​photographed car races in the World Endurance Championships in Europe and the USA. Races were 6, 12 or 24 hours​ events​ with the most well​- known being the famous Le Mans 24 hour race in France which, when taking into consideration the pre and post race coverage, has me photographing for an impressive 36 hours.

Triathlons have​ also​ been wonderful ​sporting occasion​s that I’ve thoroughly enjoyed covering​, ​my favourite being the Columbia Threadneedle World Triathlon in Leeds.  Capturing the superb competitors of Team GB in action, especially the Bro​w​nlee brothers, was such a delight.

This summer, Endurance photography ​featured prominently​ in my calendar ​as​ I had the honour of photographing the ​equestrian ​Euston Park Endurance Rides in the grounds of Euston Hall in Thetford, Suffolk.  With around 100 entries from 11 nations including Argentina, Spain, Belgium and Hong Kong it really has been super seeing some of the world’s top ​horse ​riders compete up to 160 kilmoters in one day.

As you can see from the photos, we were blessed with a gloriously sunny day. I covered a lot of riding action out on the course loops​, ​the action in the stables and the regular veterinary checks.

My 15 plus hours of photography at each Euston Park Endurance Ride require​d​ a variety of shooting techniques. ​ These ranged ​from​ being​ out on the course capturing the speed, agility, power and grace of the horses in the lush, verdant countryside through to the reportage and documentary style​ of the behind the scenes team work​ in the stables, interaction with the horses, lifestyle and atmosphere​ all ​ ​making me one very happy photographer!

I hope you enjoy looking through this little collection of images from the events.  It is a wonderful spectat​or​ sport ​and ​by​ all​ accounts​ from the lovely​ and talented​ riders​ with whom​ I spoke, a superb ride in​ which to participate​​.​
