Another successful trip down to London to cover the marathon. Definitely one of the highlights on my sporting calender - its a day when everyone has a smile on their face, people are super friendly and thousands of runners raise a fortune for the many charities represented. I was based on the Embankment at the 40km mark, so quite near the end of the course and where the participants need the most encouragement !
As usual the roads were packed out with spectators and supporters and it was pretty much a constant noise, from when we set up at 8pm until the last one went past around 6pm. So a long day but always great fun. A few highlights below. And if you want to read my tips for photographing marathons, follow the jump.

"As a new business, it was very important to me to get the right publicity photographs for my marketing materials. When I met David, he listened carefully to what I was trying to achieve with my brand, and then produced fabulous photographs that were exactly what I needed. He was extremely professional throughout but also nice and friendly. Myself and my clients found it easy to relax with him, which was essential to create the right vibe for the shoot. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone."
