Faces of Hurley Classic Portrait project

December 02, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

Last weekend was one of the UK’s biggest Freestyle kayaking events, the SAS Hurley Classic. A fun competition which has grown in size immensely since the last time I attended this comp. As well as a traditional freestyle competition there are also other fun events like an extreme boater-X race and an opportunity for young paddlers to paddle with some of their favorite famous faces from all over the world.

Although I have been kayaking in a lot of different places all over the world since the last time I paddled at Hurley it was still super fun, but I had no desire to take any more photos of people kayaking there, instead I decided to have a good old play with my new Canon 50mm f/1.4 prime lens and shoot some portrait photos of some of the paddlers taking part in the event, the Faces of Hurley Classic. I wish I could have taken a photo of all of the competitors but since there were 200+ entrants that probably would have taken a little more planning than I had put into this one, but maybe next time. Check out some of the individuals below and I will see you at Hurley again soon. And a BIG THANK YOU to everyone who took part.
