Sports Photography – Iron Girl Triathlon Pleasant Prairie, WI
This weekend I was hired by FinisherPix.com to shoot the Iron Girl Triathlon held in Pleasant Prairie, Wisconsin. I was one of three photographers covering this event.
This was a very long day. Started with an early rise at 4am to get to the venue in time, we were scheduled to meet before 7am. After the race, I ended up going back to the State Fair to photograph the Mr. & Ms. Physique competition on closing day. Getting home around 11pm, and then a couple of hours going through what I shot, this was easily a 22 hour day.
In addition to shooting a few images before the start of the race, I covered the Swim exit and the Finish line later in the day. The shooting went well, we were fortunate to have clear skies, but the way things were set up it was difficult to get a good angle on the action. Lots of people walking into the shot as well, that was very frustrating.
