Athletics Shooting

Right I've got 4 days of athletics to shoot BUSA and I'm just trying to plan the 4 days.

Wondered if anyone had any tips/advice as it will be the first time I've covered so many days in one go.

Cheers Ian.

Re: Athletics Shooting

Well you've shot so much sport recently, I don't think we can advise on the technicalities

With so much time though, I would suggest pre planning what you want to shoot. I expect there will be many events going on at same time, so you'll have to prioritise the shoots & where you are going to position yourself.

Be good to hear how you get on

Get there early, pick your spot, pic who you want to shoot, have fun and prey the weather is not going to be as bad as they are forcasting.

Re: Athletics Shooting

Thanks Hoffy.

Fortunately most of the sport takes place in the indoor 'Athletics Sport of Excellence' arena

Re: Athletics Shooting

OH WOE IS ME! TWO 1Ds! OH THE PAIN!

Good luck and your lens choices look good to me. Also the thing about prioritising I suppose is right, make sure you know everything that's going on and when so you don't waste time finding stuff / asking about times etc.

Re: Athletics Shooting

All I can say is what has been said, go through the events lists and timetable what you are shooting and where it is and stick to it. Get to each event early if possible to get a good pitch. Don't drink to much either, you probably won't have time to pee! That's from my experience with an all day time trial, I was stuck out in the country all day with no facilities.
I've got 5 days at the velodrome at the end of the month, but accreditation was impossible, the press officer there has had to share passes before for a world cup event. Still the banking is a great place and you can see the whole track from there.

Re: Athletics Shooting

Well I've been to pick up my pass and had a walk around the indoor stadium



Approx 10 togs working the event so I will take the advice about getting there early.
