Obstacle Racing – Tough Mudder Australia / NZ Official Photographer
In 2011 I was appointed as Tough Mudder Australia’s official event photographer for all Australian and New Zealand obstacle racing events.
The events feature 18+km of cross country running and British Special Forces inspired obstacles. Some of the hurdles faced include crawling under barbed wire through mud, jumping into ice baths, being electrocuted and the newly introduced fire water slide.
Across the timeline of the event I am required to liase with the marketing team, external PR company, national ambassador and sponsors to develop a shot list, shoot the event, event village (incorporating sponsors stands) process images, post to their social media accounts and provide images to media outlets.
