The Brief

Maverick are one of the UK's leading trail running event companies, they run meticulously planned races held in some of the most beautiful areas of the UK and training camps held in the mountains of Europe and North Africa. We have an ongoing relationship with Maverick to capture the essence of their events, from build up to finish. We also work to build compelling imagery to advertise new races using both photography and video.

The Solution

Capturing running events and training camps comes with a unique set of logistics and shooting difficulties - prior to shooting we make a comprehensive plan of locations, routes and good photo spots and with careful timing we ensure we can be at the right place at the right time to get the perfect shots. During the Maverick camps in Chamonix and the Atlas Mountains of Morocco our photographer runs along with the team to capture the day as it unfolds, using a carefully chosen photography set up for lightweight use allowing us to cover a lot of ground in a short time. We also work with Mavericks on video projects, showcasing some of the new ultra routes to help increase entries. To do this we worked with Ben and Justin to determine the best locations and coordinated our drone Pilot, Videographer and photographer to work together and make the shoot a success over a 90km course in the limited amount of time we had.

The Details

Using our background in competitive mountain running, we are able to keep up with the groups on the training camps aiming to capture the atmosphere of a group run in the mountains without interrupting the flow.

More than just providing sports photography we also take care of logistics, planning and navigation. we pride ourselves on being self sufficient and fast moving in the mountains and any inhospitable terrain.

The most important element we have found with event photography is to capture the atmosphere of people enjoying their surroundings and pushing themselves that little bit harder.

By combining our experience in the outdoors and careful planning we are able ensure we get shots which showcase the environment alongside the runners at the events no matter how long or extreme.

“Here at Maverick Race we like to create a visual experience for our customers, working with Jake is always an absolute pleasure, his attention to detail and work ethic are second to none. He has a unique style about his work and his images are always sublime, they transport you into the moment and make you feel that hunger to be in that exact location which is what we at maverick race what you to feel. Jake will go the extra mile to get the shot, whilst out in Chamonix he was not only running with the group, but also running miles ahead to make sure he captured everyone. He really is a special photographer and we are blessed to have met him”
