Photography is about telling stories through moments. I’ve been telling the story of the Cellcom Green Bay Marathon since it’s inception in 2000 for the marathon and it’s title sponsor. The race is a fun community even that begins and ends at Lambeau Field, home of the Green Bay Packers. Runners get to do a lap around the field inside the stadium before they make their final dash across the parking lot to a waiting tailgate party with brats, beer and music. My job on race day is to tell the story of the average runner. I do try and get shots of the elite athletes at the beginning of the race, but after that I concentrate on the average runners and their fans as they trek through the Green Bay area.
I like to photography with as long of a lens as possible, usually with a 400mm F2.8, using shallow depth of field so I can isolate the runner or the fan and capture that moment in the race. Here are some of my favorite moments from the race. If you would like to see more of my photos from the day you can visit my online gallery.
Thanks for looking!
