Salford World Cup Triathlon Cup

Given my prolific on line archive of my  guilty pleasure , fieldd hockey ( for which I have developed an international reputation over a decade or more , it isn’t the only sport I excel at capturing ! Triathlon gave me my first professional commission as official photographer for the City of Salford, ITU World Cup 2004.

 

Always  prepared to go the extra mile, stripped off my shors and waded into the lake to get shots like this of athletes rmerging from the swim section of Tatton Triahtlon!

I prefer to work alone but also worked , on one occasion , for another professional local photographer , Barry Derbyshire as part of a team of four pros covering the inaugral Tatton Triathlon and he declared his admiration for the quality of my work and the addtional effort I typically put in.

He wrote

“10 out of 10 for the running pics on Sunday John, low angle exposure and your humour made the day – just cant fault them and the massive depth of field with the wide angle was definitely the right choice – and full marks on your exposure” “The running shots by John Coxon,were great, lying flat on his stomach with a wide angle lens he was shooting shooting up against the sky and produced fantastic results, he’s a pure pro. His Sunday running shots and the Saturday Swimming are the best.”

She wrote recently ” These are brilliant John . You are such a great photographer. Love your work. Your work is fantastic and appreciate all the pictures and kindness over the years through my career.” I had the privilege of being hired by michelle to photograph her taking part in the London Triathlon . When she was awarded 220 magazine coash of the year I wrote and illustrated feature about her Women Sport Report which included a brief interview with her, I also managed to get her on the front cover of the wsr magazine with a shot of her and her prodigy Jodie Stimpson. More recently Michelle said of me and my work Thank you John Coxon, Your work is fantastic and you should be proud of what you have achieved. Im really happy you could capture some of these memories of my career. 🙂 John is highly recommended!”
