A few weeks ago, I was fortunate to be able to combine my two passions, photography and sport. As the official photographer of the European Athletics Championships in Amsterdam, I had an all access pass to the ins and outs of an incredible event.
The King of the Netherlands meeting the athletes.
Covering everything from the pre-Games press conference to the closing.
The media set up was world class.
Amsterdam getting ready with the EC branding
My image on the cover of the “Telegraaf” was very rewarding
Athletes waiting to see whether the beat the Dutch relay record – they did!
Heading home for the Gold Medal!
The start of the half marathon in front of the iconic Rijks Museum
Dafne Schippers – the home favourite winning the 100m and 200m
World Champ Greg Rutherford
Could be worse ways to spend a day!
I loved being a part of such an incredible event! Thank you Amsterdam!
