Tough Mudder 2015

Tough Mudder 2015

Tough Mudder, a gruelling 12 mile stamina course laced with iced water dips, barbed wire, rope climbs, water jumps, electrocution and of course mud, and lots of it. Set in the in a tranquil surrounds of the Cotswolds

This was my second visit to Tough Mudder upon request of the Total Guide To Team. It’s one of those occasions where being behind the camera is certainly a better deal than being in front of it (although it does look like alot lot of fun) The forecast was rain, not that any of the ‘Mudders’ would have minded, luckily the sun was out all day, so much so that I ended up with a sunburnt face, yes, I forgot my sunscreen!

The Brief – Creative documentary and lifestyle photography of the event. To follow the Total Guide To team around the course, capture the atmosphere, the fun, the mud and the tears with an emphasis on the Total Guide Team.

Lens of Choice – Canon 70-200 IS 2.8 II

Highlight – The kind lady at the water point who kindly filled my waterbottle 3 times! it was a hot day!

Well done to the Total Guide To Team Team! Here is a selection from the day.

Tough Mudder 2014

Last weekend I ventured to a Tough Mudder event in Cirencester Park.  Tough Mudder have become popular across the UK. It’s a 10-12 mile obstacle course designed to test physical strength and mental grit. The staff at Total Guide To had entered a team asked me to capture them in all the mud and glory! Luckily for me the weather held off and I was able to work my way around the ‘spectator’ course and grab shots at the various obstacles. I must admit I had my work cut out. Once they were covered head to toe in mud it was hard to spot who was who. I also realised that towards the end of the course I had also covered a fair few miles myself! It looks like loads of fun, I wouldn’t mind taking part, but I think I’ll be sticking to my camera again next year.
