It was a pleasure to shoot 2XU sportswear athletes running in an ultramarathon for the London agency Canoe Inc.

I was positioned at a rest point in Folkstone from 7.30pm until 3am shooting athletes as they arrived and set off on their 176 mile run.

I wanted to convey the movement of the runners by shooting with flash at a slow shutter speed even when taking portraits.

Both 2XU and Canoe Inc were very pleased with the results.
