Some of you may not know, but I started my photography career as a sports photographer.

I even took a workshop from one of the top US sports photographer at the time, in Colorado. I think this is when I got hooked on photography.

I was lucky enough to shoot a number of major events, including the US Snowboaring finals in Aspen, the Quicksilver Pro Surfing event at Snapper Rocks in Australia and a major tennis events in Sydney. Since then I have shot a number of surfing and football events – mainly for media (newspapers and magazines). I tell you, it’s a rush when you have the newspaper editor calling you wanting an image before dealine:)

I’ve even almost drowned while shooting surfers from the water. Not good.

The best of the best in Sports Photography.

This video shows what it takes to cover a major event, maybe the biggest event ever, the 2012 Summer Olympic Games in London. I was not there, but these guys take sports photography to a whole new level, my hat off to them.
