Coaching With Care

As I build my portfolio trying to capture that perfect image, I get to meet Athletes from all walks of life, professionals and beginners. Dorian Esau, Western Province Pace setter offered me the opportunity to practice my action photography by spending some time at Parow Athletics track with Nolene Conrad from Coaching With Care. I have never photographed at an athletics track before so this was a great opportunity for me to practice and add something different to my portfolio.
