As the official first day of the championships wraps up we saw a busy day with 3 exciting draws, including two mens’ and a women’s. Minus the terrible jet lag and 5 hours of sleep a night it has been amazing thus far, to have the privilege of working such an esteemed event and learning from the very best has been and will continue to be an honour. The minimum 14 hour days are sure to worsen the effects of the jet lag but in the end it’s undoubtably worth it.
I met my journalist counterpart today, Rick Lane, a nice fellow from the UK who is tasked with recording the championships events via social media and various other outlets, minus my blog of course… The level of writing showcased here is obviously a little more barbaric as opposed to his fine verbal craftsmanship.
It has been fantastic working with the governing body of curling here at the event, giving me the chance to try all sorts of crazy things with remote cameras and places to shoot from. A goal I have set for myself this week is to find an interesting place to put a remote that offers an angle not usually seen in the curling world, so far some interesting ideas have come to mind and I guess you’ll have to come back throughout the week to see how they play out.
Thanks to Richard Gray, photo editor and my mentor for the event I have been able to capture images that I never imagined to be getting at 19. The entire World Curling Federation team as well as the WCFTV crew have welcomed me with opened arms and really made this week amazing and full of fun, learning and success.
Enough rambling from myself, here are my favourite images from the day’s events!
