A race between two businessmen, who after work, have to be somewhere…but where? Public transport is not good enough! It’s slow and expensive! Go by bike? ….No! They take it to the streets on foot! Fast and agile and can go where cars can’t!
You can also view the video of the shoot here!
So here are my results. Enjoy!

It has been a long time coming. A while back I did a photoshoot in london with SHOOT DHS Models. It has been kept under the hat for a while, but now I am proud to present the video from the days shoot. The theme was a race between two business men, who after work, have somewhere to be, but local transport and cars are slow, so they take it to the streets on foot. Photos are to follow soon.
So here it is:

Sunday 25th Sept 2011 saw approximately 1000 competitors head down to the RAT RACE event village in Potters Field, London. This was a longer and more challenging race. Done on foot and bikes, the racers had to cover a lot of London. This time I had the car; Cliff drove and I navigated. When we passed Rat Race competitors on their bikes, it was a good opportunity to lean out of the passenger window and capture the action while moving. Communication was key between me and cliff so I didn’t fall out or take out any cyclists.
Alongside the cycling and running, the racers also kayaked, abseiled, climbed and did an assault course. It was very hard to keep up with the racers, despite having the car, but we had the traffic and congestion to contend with, as well as having to take the main routes and park the car and walk to the checkpoints where the challenges were taking place.
One of the highlights was that the BBC were filming Ben Fogle competing in the race. He is currently filming a series, in conjunction with Lonely Planet, ‘A Year of Adventures’ and RAT RACE was included. There have been many books about a year of adventures, but this is the first time that it will be televised. Lucky for Ben as he gets to compete/complete all these adventures, something that I would love to do. The BBC were very helpful as they were our big clue to finding Ben and tracking him down. They did have three camera crews, two in vans and third on a motorbike. Also with Ben was another competitor who had eyes on him the whole time, feeding back to the camera crews where they were and where they were next headed. I did ask if I could jump onboard with the team, but unfortunately they didn’t have enough room, or that was a polite way of saying ‘no’. I think it was the latter!
Anyway, here is my selection of photos, while Ben was an interesting focal point, my brief was to capture the RAT RACE, and so I shall present it that way too. (I am never easily starstruck!) Enjoy!
