Camera Equipment: DJI Phantom 4 Pro drone

Story

“The subjects of this photo are the amazing triathletes taking part in the annual Jersey Triathlon. I was commissioned to capture the triathlon for the event organizers and the swim start was the portion of the race that I was most excited about! I really wanted to convey the explosive power and sheer determination of these amazing athletes giving their all at the start of a grueling three-part race.

The weather was not great, and just 5 minutes before the start of the race it was still raining and therefore I did not think I would be able to operate the drone in order to capture the start. Luckily with 2 minutes to spare, the rain stopped and I was able to fly into position just in time to capture this amazing spectacle!”
