Photographing the Rock N Roll Marathons has become a regular routine for Sports Photographer Kevin Thompson. Kevin has become a regular with the Competitor Group and providing marketing images has become a unique experience. Normally you deal with the general public at these types of events, but working for the promoter gives Kevin much more creative freedom. Because you aren’t trying to capture every single person and trying to sell each image, Kevin can focus on the fun and more creative images to help Competitor grow the interest in a race for the upcoming year. I’m sure you have all seen a photo of yourself from an event where the photographer is running around trying to capture every image possible, terrible images usually, this can easily lead to a photographer putting his / her camera down and never picking it up again. The relationship between Competitor and Kevin Thompson has been that of creating images that will get people interested in running the next years race, images that show people having fun and smiling, wearing costumes and such. If people look at those images and say to themselves “that looks like fun, I should run that race” then Kevin has hit a home run.
The next time you race a Rock N Roll marathon, you might just see Kevin taking your picture. Happy Running!
