This month I spent a few days in Norway photographing a fun and active group of bike riders as they travelled 700km + from Alesund down to Bergen.
I never knew there was so many great climbs in Norway, some climbs were 18km long and climbed 1400m while others were shorter and steep at 30%. All in all it was a great week and I went along to try record it’s epicness (spelling?) as much as possible.
Here are some of my favourite shots.
Wedding season is in full swing! Since my last blog post I have been busy photographing and capturing some more beautiful weddings while my wife Margit has been almost non-stop this summer performing, singing and getting people to dance at wedding all across Estonia. With Margit we together had one interesting idea, to make a combined group of wedding photography and wedding music - we called this group Meie Päev, the name being a reminder of what weddings are, the most special day for the couple.
You can see this website here: meiepäev.ee
We are still working on expandingt he website and hope to soon add Margit’s music page, a blog section and also an about us page. Please check it out and feel free to share with anybody planning to tie the know and have their own special ‘meie päev!’
After a few crazy weeks being fully focused in wedding photography, I was pleased this weekend to take a short break from it and ‘get back to my roots’ with three days of photographing the Estonian national cycling Championships.
This year the race was held in and around Otepää. Spread over three days, the event promised to be a lot of fun.
The first day was the individual timetrial. Held over an ‘out and back’ course starting and finishing in Tehvandi wintersports stadium. It was a very hot day and I must admit I came away from it with a bit of a red neck.
The second day was a closed circuit race for Junior (16-18 year old) and Senior 5-8 categories. This track was mega hard and was raced over purpose built rollerskating tracks normally used by cross country skiiers training in the summer. Almost no flat the whole race
The third day was for elite men and women to show their stuff on a long and slightly hilly track around the countryside, although it was a very wet and windy day the racing was certainly very warm!
The first 2 days I was on foot, walking around the track and finding nice spots. On the third day I was on a motorcycle so got to stay close to the action all the way.
All my images from the three days can be seen in these three galleries and below are a few of my favourites from the weekend.
Galleries form the three days
Next up I am back to wedding mode (it is wedding season after all) and I hope to have some exciting news about that to announce soon.
