St Anton Downhill

Today was a great day for shooting, the sun was high over St Anton, and the girls were skiing great, Chemmy went off first, but still I managed to get a great shot of her. Lindsey Vonn won the event, with Kelly Vanderbeek 2nd and Julia Mancuso 3rd, a great day for the USA and Canada not so hot for the Austrians, Chemmy came in 16th not a bad result for us (GB) I think, but I am sure she will not be satisfied, and that is what will make her a winner eventually.Tomorrow we have the Super Combined event, a Downhill race followed by a slalom. Back off to edit more pictures now
Catch ya later

Back in Austria

I am now back in Austria, and have moved into my new apartment.
Italy was great and I managed to get a few realy good photos, I have only added a couple to my website www.gamma-photography.com as I have been mega busy, but if you take a look and tell me what you think I would be grateful, I am also lucky enough to have met Kalle Palander possibly the best skier in the world at the moment, and have some of my photos on his site www.kallepalander.com
Today has been a runaround day, getting the new apartment stocked, sorting out bank accounts and most importantly internet in the house!!! none of this wait a week stuff that you get in the UK, within 5 minutes of leaving the shop I was online at home with wireless broadband, how great is that? Of course that means I am now a slave to technology once more!!
Tomorrow will see me shooting the training run of the womens World Cup downhill event that lucky for me is being held in St Anton, I met Chemmy Alcott today, our big hope of getting a podium at some stage, and she is even more beautiful in real life than in the pictures I have seen of her. Makes me wish I was just 20 years younger though seeing all these gorgeous girls in Lycra.... Maybe one of them will being going through the I want a fat bald old man stage of life!!
Off now catch you again soon
