Sovereign Tri Series: Wellington 2015

I shot for Wellington The Sovereign Tri Series for PhotoSport on Saturday 14 March 2015. It’s a national series of triathlon events under the name Tri(tm). It’s the first time I’ve photographed the event, which was centred at Waitangi Park and Oriental Bay. It heads around the peninsular toward Evans Bay. I studied up on the course maps and timings of the events so that on the day I had a game plan written on a small note pad in my pocket. It was great as with triathlon you’ve got people coming and going in all directions with different disciplines. It would be too confusing to try and figure out what to do by look at it! I managed to get around to Point Jerningham to get some shots of the city behind.
