Mitch the Snowman

Well today has been fun so far, its not stopped snowing all day. I was sitting on a mountain watching gorgeous women in lycra, thinking to myself not a bad life really! Todays pics are not the greatest but it was more of a training session for me as the Brit boys ski tomorrow and I hope to get some great action shots of them.
Check out my site later tonight to see the latest snaps

My first BLOG

Ohh I feel so Chav, I now have a blog and a facebook, whatever next?

Well for those of you that know me, you will probably have guessed by now that as my sister call it "I am having a mid-life crisis" I prefer the term "Chasing a dream"
I decided to quit my mundane life of being head guard dog for a certain Embassy in London and try out life as a pro sports photographer.... Alas not being a big footie fan I decided to follow winter sports, something you know I love. Besides the logic was if it didnt work at least I would enjoy myself.

The whole process of qualifying for a press pass, getting accreditation, (official permission to photograph basically) was not easy, and as you know I HATE paperwork, but I have put my heart into this decision and having gained a season long acrreditation with the Skiing federation, I can now see a light at the end of the tunnel. As I write this I am about to start my 2nd Alpine World Cup event. I have added some photo's to my website, http://www.mitch-photography.co.uk/ but please remember these have been down-scaled (my new word) for web viewing.
Oh and just to make you lot laugh, I managed to faceplant (fall over face first into the snow) with the entire German Austrian Bulgarian and Italian womens ski team watching and cheering, not a bad way of getting myt face (or bald head known)

Well I am off for some free beer and nice food before I crash out for the night in my little campervan.
